Obesity is generally linked to poor eating habits and the availability of tasty, high-calorie foods. However, a new study led by researchers from the Magnetic Resonance Imaging Research Unit in the Department of Radiology at Hospital del Mar and the Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal), a center supported by the "la Caixa" Foundation, has found that more elements are involved.
Engineers at Duke University have demonstrated a prototype X-ray scanning machine that reveals not just the shape of an object but its molecular composition. With unprecedented resolution and accuracy, the technology could revolutionize a wide range of fields such as cancer surgery, pathology, drug inspection and geology.
Radiologists have been unearthing the effects of COVID-19 on the lungs and brain using CT and MRI, respectively, over the past year. Now for the first time, they have found a visual correlation between severity in the two organs that could have important implications, according to new research.
A new brain imaging application uses ultrasound to predict intended movements before they happen.
