PET/MRI Pinpoint Notable Breast Cancer Biomarkers

2020 28 Jan

  Researchers have pinpointed breast cancer biomarkers that have the potential to indicate malignancy presence and risk.   A research team from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York compared healthy contralateral breast tissue of patients with malignant breast tumours and benign breast tumors. They found that PET/MRI imaging could... Read more

Retinal Imaging Biomarker for Early Alzheimer's Detection

2019 19 Nov

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is difficult to detect primarily because of the lack of measurable indicators – or biomarkers – before patients exhibit symptoms of this form of dementia. However, damage to the brain occurs years before AD is already symptomatic and advanced. New research from the University of Minnesota has looked into a promising... Read more

Radiogenomic Correlations in CT Imaging and MicroRNAs

2019 29 Oct

Finding new molecular biomarkers could help improve the diagnosis and treatment of clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC). A recent study in Italy compared quantitative parameters obtained from computed tomography texture analysis and microRNAs expression profile of ccRCC looking for correlation between them.   Results of this pilot study indeed...

Blood Test Unmasks Concussions Absent on CT Scans

2019 28 Aug

It has been highlighted that patients suffering from a concussion can have CT scans which show no irregularities and patients can go on to be discharged with no further treatment. A new, cost-effective blood test may be able to identify these patients for subsequent evaluation.   The study, from UC San Francisco, analysed 450 patients who had obtained... Read more

Imaging Biomarkers Roadmap: Bridging the Translational Gap

2016 18 Oct

A paper published in Nature Reviews Clinical Oncology recommends a global standard for scanning biomarkers in cancer, in a move designed to bring research closer to clinical practice. “New imaging bioamrkers need to be established either as useful tools for testing research hypotheses in clinical trials and research studies, or as clinical decision-making...

Imaging Test May Identify Biomarker of Alzheimer’s Disease

2015 27 May

A new study published in Radiology reveals that degeneration of the brain's white matter may be an early marker of specific types of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), including early-onset AD. Researchers used diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) to assess the white matter tracts in 53 patients with three types of AD: early-onset AD and two atypical types of AD... Read more

Blood Test for Brain Injury Could Cut Need for Scans

2015 21 May

A simple blood test to measure brain-specific proteins released after a person suffers a traumatic brain injury (TBI) has been shown to predict both evidence of TBI on radiographic imaging and injury severity. A multicentre study, published in Journal of Neurotrauma , describes the potential benefit of adding detection of glial fibrillary acidic protein... Read more
