Journal Highlight: Simultaneous MRI of lung structure and perfusion in a single breathhold

Date: Jan 26, 2015

Author: spectroscopyNOW

A breathheld 3D radial ultrashort echo time (UTE) acquisition to visualize co-registered lung perfusion and vascular structure has been developed and demonstrated.

Best time of the month: fMRI helps women quit cigarettes

Date: Jan 8, 2015

Author:

A functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) study has demonstrated that a woman's stage in the menstrual cycle can affect her craving for nicotine if she is a smoker. The pilot study suggests that there might be a particular time of the month at which women wishing to quit cigarettes would be most successful.

Journal Highlight: Clinical cell therapy imaging using a perfluorocarbon tracer and fluorine-19 MRI

Date: Dec 22, 2014

Author: spectroscopyNOW

The use of a perfluorocarbon tracer agent for clinical fluorine-19 MRI cell detection is illustrated by detecting immunotherapeutic dendritic cells delivered to colorectal adenocarcinoma patients.

Atherosclerosis and brain damage: MRI insights

Date: Dec 5, 2014

Author:

A large-scale, US study involving magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has demonstrated a link between a build up of fat and cholesterol in the arteries, atherosclerosis and cognitive impairment through deterioration of brain health. Fundamentally, the study found that people with thicker internal carotid artery wall, but otherwise a symptomatic, were up to 21 percent more likely to have cognitive impairment.

Journal Highlight: Relationship between cardiac function and resting cerebral blood flow: MRI measurements in healthy elderly subjects

Date: Nov 24, 2014

Author: spectroscopyNOW

The potential effects of cardiac function on cerebral blood flow in elderly patients were studied by MRI imaging techniques, showing that fractional brain flow is a novel index for adequate brain perfusion as well as cardiovascular disease.

Solid-state NMR joins IUCr

Date: Nov 20, 2014

Author: Professor Robin Harris, University of Durham

In this International Year of Crystallography, NMR has at last established its own Commission within The International Union of Crystallography, joining 22 other commissions on a whole range of crystallographic subjects.

Chronic fatigue: Brain matters

Date: Nov 1, 2014

Author: David Bradley

US researchers have discovered, using magnetic resonance imaging, that the brains of patients with chronic fatigue syndrome have diminished white matter and white matter abnormalities in the right hemisphere.

Journal Highlight: Functional magnetic resonance imaging of story listening in adolescents and young adults with Down syndrome: evidence for atypical neurodevelopment

Date: Oct 27, 2014

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Functional magnetic resonance imaging has been used to compare activation during language processing in young adults with Down syndrome to that in typically developing comparison groups matched for chronological age or mental age.

Tackling Tourette syndrome: Therapeutic clues from MRI

Date: Oct 1, 2014

Author: David Bradley

Magnetic resonance imaging scans can show the patterns of neurotransmitters in people with Tourette syndrome that are associated with particular brain activity. The details could lead to new therapeutic targets for disorder.

Journal Highlight: Interrelations of muscle functional MRI, diffusion-weighted MRI and 31P-MRS in exercised lower back muscles

Date: Sep 22, 2014

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Exercise-induced changes of transverse proton relaxation time, tissue perfusion and metabolic turnover were investigated in the lower back muscles of volunteers by applying muscle functional MRI and diffusion-weighted imaging before and after exercise as well as dynamic 31P-MRS during exercise.
