Brain Process Underlying Recognition of Hand Gestures Found to Develop Even When Blind

Researchers have discovered by using neuroimaging that activated brain regions of congenitally blind individuals and activated brain regions of sighted individuals use common brain regions when recognizing human hand gestures.   More...

Based on HeartFreeze Inline Motion Correction (Siemens unique), MyoMaps1 provides pixel-based myocardial quantification. Global, diffuse, myocardial pathologies can be better detected (T1 Map), or better depict cardiac edema (T2 Map) and improve early detection of iron overload (T2 Map) (Photo courtesy of Siemens Healthcare).

New Cardiology Imaging Tools Include MRI Myocardial Tissue Quantification Tool and to Help Fight Cardiovascular Diseases

New imaging tools have been designed for a more precise diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases using computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and molecular imaging, as well as utilizing a universal angiography system with sophisticated features for cardiology.   More...

Neuro-MRI Scanning Reveals Disparities Between Imagining and Remembering

Using functional magnetic resonance imaging, investigators are learning more about where and how imagination processes occur in human brains. Investigators devised a study that would help them distinguish real imagination from related mental processes such as remembering.    More...

fMRI Shows Earlier Depression Can Lead to Hyperconnected Brain Networks in Young Adults

Depression may be better predicted and understood now that researchers have discovered through neuroimaging that young adults who had previously suffered from depression have hyper-connected emotional and cognitive networks in the brain.   More...

Nanotechnology Provides an Armory of Imaging and Therapeutic Applications

Scientists have created dynamic nanoparticles that could provide a range of applications to diagnose and treat cancer. Built on a simple-to-construct polymer base, these particles can be utilized as contrast agents to illuminate tumors for MRI and PET scans or deliver chemo and other therapies to kill tumors.  More...
