MRI Improves Diagnosis of Fetal Brain Abnormalities

2016 19 Dec

New research published in The Lancet suggests that adding MRI after the mid-pregnancy scan could provide more certainty in diagnosing fetal brain abnormalities. The study involved 570 women whose mid-pregnancy ultrasound scan revealed a potential brain abnormality in the fetus. Within two weeks of their first scan they were given an extra scan using...

A Safer Way to Image Molecules in the Brain

2016 05 Dec

Scientists from MIT have devised a new probe that enables them to image molecules in the brain without using any chemical or radioactive agents. The new probe consists of proteins and once it hits a particular target, the probe induces blood flow changes that can be seen by MRI or other imaging techniques. Their work is reported in the journal Nature... Read more

Mapping the Fetal Brain: New Technique

2016 17 Oct

Researchers at the University of Washington have developed an approach to image functional activity in the brains of individual fetuses, allowing a better look at how functional networks within the brain develop. The research team corrected images for motion, thus allowing a four-dimensional reconstruction of brain activity in moving subjects. The new... Read more

‘Salt’ MRI May Show Greater Detail in Kidney Scans

2016 21 Mar

MRI experts at the University of Nottingham have won a £1 million grant to conduct research using the body’s natural sodium (salt) content that could lead to greater detail in kidney scans. The research, that will provide a more detailed picture of tissue health and disease, is to be pioneered by the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) team at... Read more

Understanding Extreme Events in the Brain; How Do Seizures Develop?

2016 01 Mar

Physicists at the Universities of Bonn and Oldenburg have developed a model whose behaviour on the brain – although based on strict rules – can apparently change spontaneously. There are also changes of this type in nature, for example, in the development of migraine attacks or epileptic seizures. The mechanism, described for the first time... Read more

RSNA15: Study Shows Link Between Early-Stage Brain and Heart Disease

2015 03 Dec

Researchers in the Netherlands studying thousands of healthy adults have found a connection between very early stages of brain and heart disease, according to a study presented on Wednesday, 2 December, at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America. The finding provides more insight into the heart-brain connection, which is important... Read more

RSNA15: Mobile MRI Tracked Marathon Runners

2015 30 Nov

An imaging study has identified cartilage regeneration in long-distance runners. Ultra-distance running places tremendous stress on the body and this research provides detailed information on how the various organ systems change and adapt in response to that stress, according to researchers, who used a mobile MRI truck to follow marathon runners for...
