New Probe Tracks Osteoarthritis Development

A new study has pioneered a technique to track the development of osteoarthritis in the initial and moderate stages of the disease. The technique could enable earlier diagnosis and management of the disease which affects millions, and is the leading cause of chronic disability in the United States.  More...

Advanced 3D Facial Imaging Designed to Help in Early Identification of Autism

Autism is a range of closely related disorders observed in patients who exhibit a shared assortment of symptoms, including delays in learning to communicate and interrelate socially. Early detection of autism in children is the vital for optimized treatment. Using sophisticated three-dimensional imaging and statistical analysis techniques, researchers have identified facial measurements in children with autism that may lead to screening tools for young children and provide clues to genetic causes.  More...
