A new, national research initiative will place the University of Wisconsin-Madison at the forefront of a revolution in imaging fostered by cryo-electron microscopy and cryo-electron tomography—technologies that can illuminate life at the atomic scale.
Mike Ryan at the Veterans Affairs (VA) Midwest Healthcare Network—also known as VISN23—is proud of his team’s work on deploying a “deconstructed PACS” across the network’s 11 facilities. Still, Ryan, who is informatics coordinator of the imaging service line, would rather talk about the honor of working with his fellow VA employees to “serve those who have served.”
A single-center observational study of more than 1,000 oncological examinations has demonstrated that PET/ MRI facilitates cancer staging as well as PET/CT and improves lesion detectability in select cancers, potentially helping to promote fast, efficient local and whole-body staging in one step.
A cardiac MRI is effective in identifying inflammation of the heart muscle in athletes and can help determine when those who have recovered from COVID-19 can safely return to play in competitive sports, according to a new study.
Scientists at the Massachusetts General Hospital have developed a molecular imaging probe to reveal Alzheimer’s disease-related γ-secretase in rodents and macaques with translational potentials in humans.
