Combining PET and MRI to Visualize Development of Alzheimer’s Disease

German researchers have combined two noninvasive imaging techniques, positron emission tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, to help them to examine the proteinaceous deposits typical of AD in transgenic mice.   More...

e-Incubator Technology Provides Real-Time Imaging of Bioengineered Tissues in a Controlled Unit

A new e-incubator, an innovative miniature incubator that is compatible with magnetic resonance imaging, enables scientists to grow tissue-engineered constructs under a controlled setting and to study their growth and development in real time without risk of contamination or damage.   More...

MRI Shows Brain Anatomy Differences Between Autistic and Typically Developing Individuals to Be Mostly Indistinguishable

In the largest magnetic resonance imaging study of patients with autism to date, Israeli and American researchers have shown that the brain anatomy in MRI scans of autistic individuals older than age six is mostly indistinguishable from that of typically developing individuals, and therefore, of little clinical or scientific value.   More...

Image: Example of an MR image of a control subject’s brain on top and a chronic fatigue brain on bottom. The ventricles are larger in the chronic fatigue syndrome patient, and there is less white matter. Abnormal microstructure is present on one side in the white matter in chronic fatigue syndrome (Photo courtesy of Michael Zeineh, Stanford University).

Diffusion-Tensor MRI Shows Brain Abnormalities in Patients with Chronic Fatigue

Radiology researchers have discovered that the brains of patients with chronic fatigue syndrome have reduced white matter and white matter abnormalities in the right hemisphere of the brain. They used neuroimaging techniques to examine the brains of patients with chronic fatigue syndrome and healthy people, and found distinct differences between the two groups.  More...

Ultrahigh-Field fMRI Reveals Language Hubs in the Brain in Great Detail

For the first time, new research has demonstrate that the areas of the brain that are important for understanding language can be targeted much more effectively using ultrahigh-field, 7 Tesla MRI technology than with standard clinical MRI scanners. This helps to protect these areas more effectively during brain surgery and avoid inadvertently damaging it.   More...

Pacemakers Receive CE Mark with Options for MRI

A range of pacemakers have received CE marking approval, and they are the first to enable patients to undergo full-body magnetic resonance imaging scans in both 1.5 Tesla and 3.0 Tesla systems.  More...

fMRI Reveals Fetal Brain Development

A new investigational imaging approach using functional magnetic resonance imaging technology is offering clues into fetal brain development. These resulting in vivo images are revealing different stages of fetal brain development. German researchers have observed that regions of the brain that are later responsible for sight are already active at this stage.  More...
