Whole-body PET/CT: World’s first installation in Bern

The world’s fastest whole-body PET/CT scanner is being put into service today at Bern University Hospital’s Inselspital Department of Nuclear Medicine. This scanner of the latest generation opens up new…

Signals from a miniature MRI unit

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is indispensable in medical diagnostics. However, MRI units are large and expensive to acquire and operate. With smaller and cost-efficient systems, MRI would be more flexible…

Motorized sensors aim to improve and speed up early-stage disease diagnosis

Catching deadly diseases like cancer early on is key to improving patient survival odds. However, diseases are much harder to diagnose in their preliminary stages because people often haven’t developed…

For neural research, wireless chip shines light on the brain

Researchers have developed a chip that is powered wirelessly and can be surgically implanted to read neural signals and stimulate the brain with both light and electrical current. The technology…

New technology allows more precise view of the smallest nanoparticles

Imaging technology offers advantages for diagnostics, other uses. Current state-of-the-art techniques have clear limitations when it comes to imaging the smallest nanoparticles, making it difficult for researchers to study viruses…

Sensors get a laser shape up

A simple method developed at KAUST uses laser beams to create graphene electrodes that have better performance than those produced through older methods. Electrodes consisting of graphene, an atypical form…

Making sense of what you see in biomedical images

Sometimes an image gives those who can read it correctly a deeper insight into what they can see. In many scientific disciplines, the key to extracting meaningful information from large…

Detecting signs of disease even earlier with MRI

Researchers at FAU and the Graz University of Technology are hoping to improve the imaging of cell metabolism using a special technique. The use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in…

Performance test for neural interfaces

Freiburg researchers develop guidelines to standardize analysis of electrodes How can scientists measure and define the performance of neural electrodes if there are no uniform standards? Freiburg microsystems engineer Dr….

Key breakthrough towards on-site cancer diagnosis

No stain? No sweat: Terahertz waves can image early-stage breast cancer without staining. A team of researchers at Osaka University, in collaboration with the University of Bordeaux and the Bergonié…
