Though they are common and can have severely debilitating effects, the precise cause of migraines remains a mystery. A study has shed important new light on the topic by leveraging cutting-edge imaging technology to gain a new perspective on structures in the brain, which revealed enlarged spaces around the blood vessels in people suffering the condition.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, Science
It is thought that Parkinson's disease takes hold in the brain long before obvious motor symptoms appear, and a big focus for researchers is the development of diagnostic tools that can detect it early on. Scientists in Israel have demonstrated a promising new technology in this space, using a variation of MRI to spot tiny, telltale structures forming deep in the brain as the disease progresses.C
Using machine learning, researchers have developed an algorithm that can accurately diagnose Alzheimer’s disease from a single MRI brain scan. The system is more accurate than any pre-existing diagnostic tool available to doctors and can also distinguish early-stage disease from more advanced stages.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Alzheimer's Disease, Diagnosis, Brain, MRI, I
Tennis players are susceptible to wrist cartilage injuries, which may not even present any symptoms at first. A van-based MRI system was designed with that fact in mind, as it can spot such injuries right at the tennis court, before they become serious.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: University of Tsukuba, MRI, Injuries, wrist, Cartilage, Tennis, Portable
New research has found the world’s first portable MRI machine can accurately detect ischemic strokes. The machine was cleared for use by the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in 2020 and researchers are increasingly demonstrating it to be as effective a diagnostic tool as bigger, more expensive MRI devices.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: MRI, Brain, Strokes, Neurological, Yale,
Hundreds of scientists around the globe have shared data to create the world's first brain growth chart. The project incorporated MRI scans from subjects of all ages to offer a unique portrait of how our brains change over the course of a lifetime.Continue ReadingCategory: Biology, ScienceTags: Brain, MRI, Imaging, Neuroscience, King's College London
MRI is a powerful diagnostic tool, but the size and cost of the machinery limits where it can be used. Scientists at the University of Hong Kong (HKU) have now developed a more compact and affordable MRI system, which uses a much smaller magnetic field and doesn’t require shielding, while still being able to diagnose brain disorders in patients.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: MRI,
elena malott from new jersey has 3D printed a larger-than-life brain using an experimental robotic printer developed for space applications. The post high school senior uses MRI data to 3D print a human brain appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Last year we learned of an interesting medical device that could play a significant role in expanding access to MRI imaging, by literally placing the technology on wheels. This world-first portable MRI machine proved its potential in early trials, and a new Yale-led study has built on this success by using it to detect cases of stroke in need of surgical intervention, with a high degree of accura
Ordinarily, if biologists wish to confirm that an animal specimen represents a new species, they have to perform a dissection – essentially destroying it. Now, though, the task has been accomplished non-invasively, using MRI and CT scan technologies.Continue ReadingCategory: Biology, ScienceTags: University of Bonn, MRI, CT scan is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
