Talking Point

Neuromorphic computing: taking inspiration from the brain Oct 4, 2016

A topical review in the Journal of Neural Engineering examines the rapidly advancing field of neuromorphic computing.

Research & Innovation news

MRI project charts early brain development

A four-year MRI initiative will track and analyse the evolution of a child's brain between birth and age five.

High-sensitivity PET targets brain imaging

A helmet-shaped PET system with add-on detectors could provide high-sensitivity, low-cost brain imaging.

IMPT planning scheme accounts for LET

Hybrid physical dose/LET-based planning helps avoid damage to critical structures during intensity-modulated proton therapy.

Paediatric PET dose can be reduced

Tracer activities can be significantly reduced in paediatric PET/MRI while retaining diagnostic image quality.

Lens sees sub-cellular details in large samples

A new microscope lens combines high resolution with a large field-of-view.

Nanoparticles boost photothermal therapy

Photosensitive porphysome nanoparticles could enhance photothermal therapy of pancreatic tumours.

ISOCT sheds light on tumour progression

Inverse spectroscopic optical coherence tomography helps elucidate the role of the extracellular matrix on tumour progression.

How cost-effective is molecular imaging?

Measuring the cost-effectiveness of molecular imaging is more a question of economics than it is about medicine.

We must sell molecular imaging better

Molecular imaging could help drive personalized medicine and revolutionize healthcare, but first the sector must improve its outreach.

BGO lines up for time-of-flight PET

By exploiting Cerenkov emission, bismuth germanate shows promise as a relevant scintillator for time-of-flight PET.
