Making the invisible visible with fluorescence

Photo: Image with red luminous bladder, next cystoscope [22/06/2015] Bladder tumors have different growth characteristics. In most cases, they are limited to the inner wall of the bladder and thus well resectable. Unlike carcinoma in situ, which becomes muscle invasive after a certain amount of time. To be able to completely remove the tumor during resection, photodynamic diagnostics (PDD) can make sense.Making the invisible visible with fluorescence - Read more

Optical Coherence Tomography: Removing brain tumor safer

( Source: MEDICA.de )

Graphic: Technique is used in the brain [18/06/2015] Brain surgery is difficult for good reason: When removing a tumor, for example, neurosurgeons walk a tightrope as they try to take out as much of the cancer as possible while keeping crucial brain tissue intact. Now Johns Hopkins researchers have developed an imaging technology that could provide surgeons with a color-coded map of a patient’s brain showing which areas are and are not cancer.Optical Coherence Tomography: Removing brain tumor safer - Read more

The method opens up new ways of imaging the fine structure of matter.Novel source of X-rays for imaging purposes - Read more

Aneurysms may recur years after endovascular treatment

Early cancer detection: "Physicians and patients need a good database"

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[04/05/2015] Whether it is a mammogram, colonoscopy or a skin cancer screening – after a certain age, we are subject to various early cancer detection screenings. Yet many of us don’t know that these screening tests are also associated with risks. This is something what Dr. Sylvia Sänger from the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf discovered in a study.Early cancer detection: "Physicians and patients need a good database" - Read more

Spinal surgery: Right on target

Photo: X-ray of the spine with marked vertebrae [14/04/2015] Because the spine is made up of repeating elements that look alike, surgeons can mistakenly operate on the wrong vertebra. To avoid this, Johns Hopkins researchers have developed a software program that works seamlessly with currently available procedures to assist a surgeon's determination of which vertebra is which.Spinal surgery: Right on target - Read more

Good bone, bad bone

Photo: OsteoProbe indentation tool [26/03/2015] For people taking glucocorticoids such as prednisone, the increased risk of bone fracture is a well-documented side effect. Used to treat a variety of medical conditions, including autoimmune diseases and allergies, glucocorticoids are known to cause rapid deterioration in bone strength. Scientists explore a new parameter of bone quality that measures strength instead of density.Good bone, bad bone - Read more

Patients want more information about medical imaging risk

Photo: Doctor holding MRI image [24/03/2015] A substantial gap exists between patient expectations and current practices for providing information about medical imaging tests that use radiation, according to a new study published online in the journal Radiology. Researchers said the findings highlight a need for better communication as medicine enters an era of patient-centered care.Patients want more information about medical imaging risk - Read more

Giant virus revealed in 3-D using X-ray laser

Photo: Computerized view of a Mimivirus [05/03/2015] For the first time, researchers have produced a 3-D image revealing part of the inner structure of an intact, infectious virus, using a unique X-ray laser at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. The virus, called Mimivirus, is in a curious class of “giant viruses” discovered just over a decade ago.Giant virus revealed in 3-D using X-ray laser - Read more
