New Method Enlarges Tissue Samples, Enabling High-Res Imaging

2015 17 Jan

MIT researchers have developed a new technique that allows biological specimens to be physically magnified and then imaged at high resolution without needing to use very powerful — and often expensive — microscopes. This new method enlarges tissue samples by embedding them in an expandable polymer gel made of polyacrylate. The expansion microscopy... Read more

Improved Ultrasound Imaging Enables Tumour Visualisation

2014 18 Feb

An innovative new technique developed by UNC researchers could enable doctors to visualise tumours without using radiation in a more cost effective way. Compared to X-rays, CT scans, and MRIs, ultrasound not only provides an alternative which is less expensive, but more importantly, it is a radiation-free technology for detecting and monitoring...
