Journal Highlight: Influence of paramagnetic melanin on the MRI contrast in melanoma: a combined high-field (11.7 T) MRI and EPR study

Date: Mar 24, 2014

Author: spectroscopyNOW

In order to elucidate the possible role of melanin in the MRI contrast of melanoma, the paramagnetic content in melanin pigment was correlated to the contrast on T1-, T2- and T2*-weighted images.

Talking music: fMRI improvises a link

Date: Mar 1, 2014

Author: David Bradley

Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) of the brains of jazz musicians engrossed in spontaneous, improvisational musical conversation light up in areas conventionally associated with spoken language and syntax. These brain regions are thought to be involved in the interpretation of the structure of phrases and sentences. Conversely, the musical "conversation" leads to reduced activity in brain areas linked to meaning, semantics, - those processes that work out the meaning of spoken language.

Journal Highlight: Functional connectivity magnetic resonance imaging in stroke: an evidence-based clinical review

Date: Feb 24, 2014

Author: spectroscopyNOW

This review provides an up-to-date summary of the available scientific data evaluating the clinical application of functional connectivity magnetic resonance imaging among stroke survivors.

Hear, hear: MRI offers acoustic neuroma insights

Date: Feb 1, 2014

Author: David Bradley

For the first time, a US research team has demonstrated, using magnetic resonance imaging data, that taking regular aspirin reduces the growth of acoustic neuromas, also known as vestibular schwannomas. The development of this type of intracranial tumour can lead to tinnitus and hearing loss but can also be fatal.

Journal Highlight: Diagnostic and prognostic value of MRI T2 quantification in heart transplant patients

Date: Jan 27, 2014

Author: spectroscopyNOW

This study was designed retrospectively to assess the value of myocardial T2 to detect or predict ongoing acute heart rejection, in heart transplant patients, with a 1.5-T MRI magnet.

Counting on brain structure: MRI reveals numeracy

Date: Jan 1, 2014

Author: David Bradley

Magnetic resonance image can reveal whether an individual's numeracy skills pivot on their spatial or non-spatial awareness skills, according to researchers in The Netherlands and Germany writing in the Journal of  Cognitive Neuroscience.

Journal Highlight: Diffusion MRI in the diagnosis of parkinsonism and tremor

Date: Dec 13, 2013

Author: spectroscopyNOW

The advantages of diffusion MRI over conventional MRI for differentiating patients with Parkinson’s disease, atypical parkinsonian disorders and essential tremor are discussed.

Liquid security: MRI at the airport

Date: Dec 1, 2013

Author: David Bradley

Researchers in the USA have developed a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique that could provide a much-needed simple way to scan liquids carried by passengers or in hold luggage for enhanced airport security and security elsewhere.

Journal Highlight: Neural correlates of stress and favorite-food cue exposure in adolescents: A functional magnetic resonance imaging study

Date: Nov 25, 2013

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Brain activation patterns in adolescents were examined during stress and favorite-food-cue experiences relative to a neutral-relaxing condition.

MR thermometry: Catalytic insight

Date: Nov 1, 2013

Author: David Bradley

A variation on the magnetic resonance imaging theme has been used by US chemists to investigate the innards of a catalytic reactor to find out how the temperatures of gases within evolve as the reaction proceeds.
