Special Imaging Study Shows Failing Hearts Are 'Energy Starved'

...fically, Bottomley and a team of cardiologists and radiologists at Hopkins used MRS to provide direct molecular-level measurements of the CK supply in normal, stressed and failing human hearts. Other team members include Robert G. Weiss, M.D., and Gary Gerstenblith, M.D., both in the Cardiology Division of the H...

...ence that this effect works. Since the signal that radiologists observe in MRI scans is generated primarily from water molecules within the body, we potentially have the ability to get better contrast and clearer images that can distinguish between different tissue types." While Kirshenbaum cautioned that many o...

Elasticity imaging identifies cancers and reduces breast biopsies

A new ultrasound technique allows radiologists to accurately distinguish benign from malignant breast lesions. Using elasticity imaging, researchers correctly identified both cancerous and harmless lesions in nearly all of the cases studied. The findings were presented today at the annual meeting...

Radiologists attempt to solve mystery of Tut's demise

Egyptian radiologists who performed the first-ever computed tomography (CT) evaluation of King Tutankhamun’s mummy believe they have solved the mystery of how the ancient pharaoh died. The CT images and results of their study were presented today at the annual meeting of ...

Researchers wake up viruses inside tumors to image and then destroy cancers

...rch 1 issue of Clinical Cancer Research, a team of radiologists and oncologists from Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions describe how they used two agents already on the market ?one of which is the multiple myeloma drug Velcade ?to light up tumor viruses on a gamma camera. The technique is the first in the new fie...

...tiful blood supply. To address this challenge, the radiologists last year asked undergraduates in the university’s BME Design Team course to devise a way to keep the microcapsules in one place where their cells could thrive and deliver effective therapy. During the past school year, the engineering students re...

Focused ultrasound relieves fibroid symptoms in women

...guided, focused ultrasound surgery (MRgFUS) allows radiologists to precisely target fibroids without harming healthy surrounding tissue. "This treatment immediately stops blood flow in the treated fibroid tissue, which results in a significant, sustained decrease in symptoms for up to 12 months," said the study...

Researchers use MRI to predict recovery after spinal cord injury

Using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), radiologists can better predict the likelihood of full or partial recovery of patients with acute spinal cord injuries (SCI), according to a study published in the June issue of the journal Radiology. "Our study demonstrates that the possibility and extent of n...
