Image: The quantitative character of the novel 3D technique on MR scans from a patient with primary liver cancer is demonstrated. Images A and B show the scan of the patient before being treated with chemoembolization. The new 3D technique helped quantify the volume and distribution of viable tumor tissue (shown in red and yellow colors). Images C and D demonstrate MR scans acquired after the treatment. The new 3D method helped the radiologists to quantify the vast central destruction of the tumor after the treatment (the dead tumor is represented by the blue color) (Photo courtesy of Johns Hopkins Medicine).

3D MRI Offers Improved Prediction of Survival After Chemotherapy for Liver Tumors

Researchers are using specialized 3D MRI scanning technology to accurately measure living and dying liver tumor tissue in order to quickly show whether very toxic chemotherapy, delivered right through a tumor’s blood supply, is working.   More...

MRI’s Magnetic Fields Used to Treat Balance Problems

Investigators, expanding on earlier studies, reported that individuals with balance disorders or dizziness traceable to an inner-ear disturbance show distinctive abnormal eye movements when the affected ear is exposed to the strong pull of a magnetic resonance imaging scanner’s  magnetic field.   More...

7-Tesla MRI Technology Offers More Precise Window into the Brain

Two small but very important regions situated deep and close together in the brain, the amygdala and the hippocampus, have until now been difficult to distinguish in neuroimaging studies of living humans because of their small size.  More...
