Advances in preclinical MRI technology Aug 20, 2014

Recent advances in preclinical MRI technologies have escalated the extent of research that can be undertaken, explains MR Solutions' David Taylor.

Research & Innovation news

Reducing FDG activity cuts PET/MRI dose

Lowering radiotracer dose while increasing PET acquisition time in PET/MRI scans optimizes image quality at lower dose.

Silicon photomultipliers ideal for PET/MRI

A preclinical PET/RF insert based on silicon photomultipliers enables simultaneous PET and MRI inside a clinical MR scanner.

MRI strategy targets tumour tracking

A novel MR imaging strategy could improve real-time tumour tracking by enhancing image quality without increasing reconstruction times.

A step towards 3D proton beam dosimetry

Reconstruction of 3D light distributions in a liquid scintillator could provide high-resolution quality assurance of clinical proton beams.

FLASH irradiation spares healthy tissue

Ultrahigh dose rate radiation pulses reduce healthy tissue damage while maintaining tumour control.

Nanoparticles offer targeted gene delivery

Magnetic nanoparticles provide safe, effective and targeted delivery of "suicide-genes" to liver cancer cells.

In brief: research round-up

Recent developments in cancer screening, nanomedicine, focused ultrasound and more.

Low-dose preview minimizes CT dose

A simulated low-dose cone-beam CT preview helps minimize delivered dose in image-guided procedures.

Neural network cuts false-positive recalls

A mammography image analysis scheme based on artificial neural networks could reduce false-positive recalls.

An in-depth guide to CT dose

Review article discusses everything you need to know about CT dose.
