Boosting quality of patient MRIs unveil stroke outcomes

Boosting quality of patient MRIs unveil stroke outcomes
  People who suffer a stroke often undergo a brain scan at the hospital, allowing doctors to determine the location and extent of the damage. Researchers who study the effects of strokes would love to be able to analyse these images, but the resolution is often too low for many analyses.

How electrical interference can cause pacemaker issues

How electrical interference can cause pacemaker issues
During the French Revolution, beheading was the preferred method of execution. The guillotine was used for thousands of executions, meaning there was no shortage of experimental material for biologist Marie Francois Bichat. Bichat tested the electrical stimulation of hearts, which was instrumental in the development of the modern day pacemaker. Nowadays, pacemakers are commonly used to maintain a regular heart rate.

Human tissue model to test colon cancer drugs

Human tissue model to test colon cancer drugs
The first-ever 'disease in a Petri dish' platform that models human colon cancer derived from stem cells has been developed by Weill Cornell Medicine investigators, allowing them to identify a targeted drug treatment for a common, inherited form of the disease. The discovery also overcomes a long-standing challenge of using mice to research this form of cancer, as they do not typically develop the disease.

Laser imaging 'bowl' gives instant test for breast cancer

Laser imaging 'bowl' gives instant test for breast cancer
In a bid to make the world's first while-you-wait test for breast cancer, European scientists are developing a comfortable hemispherical bowl lined with laser sources and ultrasound detectors with the potential to reduce the stages in spotting the disease into a single appointment. Current breast cancer diagnosis can be distressing and painful over a number of weeks.

Micra pacemaker goes on a space flight

Micra pacemaker goes on a space flight
These days astronauts are some of the healthiest and physically robust individuals that NASA can get a hold of. But one day we may see all kinds of people going to space, even those with heart conditions. Shelbi Klingsporn, a Nebraska high school student had the idea to test whether an existing pacemaker is able to handle the vibrations, radiation, and weightlessness of space to get a sense of whether pacemakers have a future in the final frontier.

Pacemakers get 3T MR-conditional approval in Europe

Pacemakers get 3T MR-conditional approval in Europe
BIOTRONIK has received CE approval for 3T full-body scans (FBS) with its latest range of MR conditional pacemaker systems. Patients implanted with single- and dual-chamber pacemakers from the Edora/Evity/Enitra series can now benefit from ultra-high field MRI scans without any restrictions on the scanned body area. BIOTRONIK’s ProMRI pacemaker portfolio was previously approved for 1.5T FBS. With 3T FBS compatibility, radiologists can offer pacemaker patients additional high-quality imaging options.
