Blood test may help signal tumor's remission, return in throat cancer patients

...er. Clinical exams, X-rays, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are currently used to monitor a patient’s progress, but observation by these methods has been difficult due to the scarring that occurs from radiation. “Finding better markers for detecting cancer as it begins and then monitoring the course ...

...- to 3- nm-wide fibrils remained. The in vitro AFM imaging also revealed the porous fibrous cell wall structure of newly emerging and mature vegetative cells, consisting of a network of nanometer-wide peptidoglycan fibers. “These results show that dynamic AFM is a promising tool to investigate the formation ...

Clot-dissolving agent may be beneficial in treatment of severe frostbite

... who were admitted with severe frostbite underwent imaging studies to assess blood flow to the affected limb. From 2001 to 2006, six patients with abnormal blood flow on angiography received tPA within 24 hours of severe frostbite injury. These individuals were compared with 25 frostbite patients treated fro...

Surprising origin of cell's internal highways

...this was impossible before the advent of live-cell imaging techniques that could reveal the true origins of these structures. "The Golgi apparatus is very close to the centrosome," said Kaverina. "So if you're not looking at it precisely, it is hard to distinguish between the centrosome and Golgi." T...

Focused ultrasound relieves fibroid symptoms in women

...atic fibroids. The women received pre-treatment MR imaging to identify and define the target fibroids. Radiologists then used MRgFUS to locate and treat the targeted fibroids while monitoring temperature changes in tissue. Ninety-six patients were treated under the original study protocol (A), and 64 pa...

Better insight into brain anatomical structures

Magnetic resonance imaging is a very effective method for revealing anatomical details of soft tissues. Contrast agents can help to make these images even clearer and allow physiological processes to be followed in real time. Conventional gadolinium complexes currently used as...

'Virtual Patient' to simulate real-time organ motions for radiation therapy
