Small-animal irradiation: easing translation into clinical studies Oct 13, 2014

The second Symposium on Small Animal Precision Image-Guided Radiotherapy examined how preclinical precision irradiation studies can better mirror clinical situations.

Research & Innovation news

PET/MRI matches PET/CT with less dose

PET/MRI is equivalent to PET/CT for lesion detection in children, while delivering far less radiation dose.

Focused ultrasound tackles brain disorders

Focused ultrasound therapy has the potential to improve quality of life for patients with a wide range of neurological disorders.

Modelling drug delivery to the brain

Mathematical model sheds light on the delivery of doxorubicin to the brain using focused ultrasound to open the blood-brain barrier.

3D ultrasound goes ultrafast

Ultrafast ultrasound technique allows cardiac blood flow to be observed in three dimensions in real time.

MRI technique provides insight into stroke

A promising new MRI technique evaluates patients for stroke and neurodegenerative diseases.

MR-guided HIFU safe for liver ablation

Researchers develop a clinically feasible treatment protocol for MR-guided HIFU of a moving organ.

Wide-angle scans give best tumour images

Digital breast tomosynthesis images acquired with wide angle geometries are rated by observers as higher in quality.

Magnetic sensor measures blood glucose

A new type of glucose sensor based on a magnetically polarizable nanoemulsion could help change the way blood sugar is measured.

In brief: research round-up

Recent developments in brain imaging, radiotherapy, PET and more.

Image analysis predicts therapy response

Advanced image analysis techniques can be used to model tumour aggressiveness and help predict treatment outcome.
