One to two weeks after that initial dose, the patient then receives a custom-tailored therapeutic dose, and therapy is considere...

PET/MRI scans may help unravel mechanisms of prenatal drug damage

...e animals were anesthetized prior to scanning. MRI scans were performed first, followed by PET. For the PET study, each animal was injected with a trace quantity of cocaine--less than 10 micrograms, which is not enough to cause pharmacological effects. The injected cocaine had previously been "labeled," or...

Nanoparticles offer new hope for detection and treatment

...e glows brightly in MRI scans. In this study, MRI scans picked up tumors that were only a couple of millimeters (about one twenty-fifth of an inch) wide. Small, rapidly growing tumors cause growth of new blood vessels, which feed the tumors. To get the particles to bind to tumors, the researchers equippe...

New brain scan technology could save babies' lives

...ently, there are two main ways of performing brain scans on small babies. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can provide data on brain function, but MRI scanners are large and static, and the baby may need to be sedated and wheeled to the scanner for the procedure to be carried out. The other alternative, ul...

Making medicine 'smarter'

...l of MRI technology, which cranks out at least 200 scans for a single patient, the sheer volume of images can be daunting for human eyes to evaluate. Meyer-Baese is developing computer software to mimic the way a radiologist analyzes all of that information -- and to do it better and faster. "The outco...

UCLA imaging study of children with autism finds broken mirror neuron system
