MRI

Watch: New molecular tags that allow MRI to track diseases in real time!

The new class of molecular tags can enhance MRI signals by 10,000-fold and generate detectable signals that last over an hour. 

MRI more accurate than ultrasound to predict preterm birth: Study

 For mothers-to-be, going for an MRI of the cervix area can give more accurate results than ultrasound to predict if some women will give a preterm birth, say researchers.

Schizophrenia symptoms may vary as per brain features

 Researchers employed a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique called "diffusion tensor imaging" on 36 healthy participants and 47 schizophrenic participants.

Lack of parental care affects brain development

 Children who are left without direct parental care for extended periods of time show larger gray matter volumes in the brain and may also show delay in brain development, according to a new study.

3D MRI can spot stroke risk in diabetic patients

People with diabetes may be harbouring advanced vascular disease that could increase their risk of stroke, researchers warn.

Non-invasive 'brain palpation' may detect Alzheimer's

 The brain cannot be palpated without using a highly invasive procedure, but researchers have now developed a noninvasive brain imaging method using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) that provides the same information as physical palpation.

How physical activity helps the elderly stay sharp

Older adults who regularly engage in moderate to vigorous physical activity perform better in mental tasks as they are more flexible in terms of brain functions, a new study says.

How MRI scanners can also help combat cancerous tumours

In a breakthrough discovery, researchers have revealed that MRI scanners can also steer tumor busting viruses to specific target sites within the body.

Single whole-body scan can detect blood clots

A new method, tested on rats, may someday enable doctors to quickly scan the entire body for a blood clot.

Why some people suffer from 'emotional instability'

Scientist have shed light on why some people have difficulties in regulating their emotions in daily life, which may be affecting their work, family and social life.

Drinking problem and promiscuity can be predicted: Study

It can be predicted if young adults are prone to developing problem drinking or engage in risky sexual behaviour in response to stress, says a new study.

First 3D heart printed using multiple imaging techniques

 Heart experts, including one of an Indian-origin, have successfully integrated two common imaging techniques to produce the first 3D anatomic model of a patient's heart.

Even when brain shrinks with age, cells' density remains constant

 A new study has revealed that cell density remains constant even though the brain shrinks with age.

Simple test measures Parkinson's progress in brain

US researchers have identified what happens to the brain with the progression of Parkinson's disease, thereby opening the door for a simple test to measure the disease advancement.

New imaging method spots liver cancer at early stage

US researchers have developed a new imaging method that can detect liver cancer and other liver diseases at an earlier stage than what current leading methods can, reports a new study.

Magical 'Harry Potter' books do spellbind our brains

It turns out that certain words from the magical Harry Potter books do cast a spell on our brains.

Babies feel pain just like adults: Study

When exposed to pain, the brain of babies "lights up" in a very way similar to adults', a pioneering Oxford University brain scanning study has found.

MRI may one day replace biopsy: Study

A new imaging technique that shows the difference between normal and cancerous cells may one day make biopsies a thing of the past.

Now, noninvasive MRI approach that can detect Alzheimer's disease early

Researchers have recently developed a new non-invasive MRI method that can help detect Alzheimer's disease in its early stages.
