Brain Disconnections Could Be Cause of Musical Anhedonia

Researchers have discovered that musical anhedonia, may be related to reduced functional connectivity between cortical regions in the brain that are responsible for processing sound, and reward-related subcortical regions. More...

MPI Technology Now Available to Medical Researchers in Australia

Medical researchers in Australia now have access to a new imaging technology called Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI) that can give researchers improved insight into organ and tissue function, with sensitivity comparable to that of nuclear medicine, the speed of Computed Tomography (CT), and the resolution of Magnetic Resolution Imaging (MRI). More...

Diagnosis of Cardiac Sarcoidosis Improved by Diet Prior to Imaging

Researchers in the US have discovered that they can increase the certainty of diagnosing cardiac sarcoidosis, if from 72 hours until the diagnostic imaging exam the patients are subject to a high-fat, low-sugar diet. More...
