Theoretical physicists working at Harvard and the Joint Quantum Institute in the US have joined forces with their Danish colleagues at the Niels Bohr Institute, to design a nanoscale loud speaker that could help make MRI scanners smaller, and might one day find a use in a future quantum computer.The 'speaker' they have conceived still needs to be tested experimentally.
Medtronic gets federal approval for the first pacemaker that's safe to use during an MRI exam. This makes possible the early detection of cancers and heart conditions that was previously unadvised.
While it might not be time to toss the paper-and-pencil model of testing, researchers in Illinois have discovered that an MRI can predict an individual's level of success in a complex task.
A Stanford University researcher is using the MRI machine to improve the efficiency and performance of jet engines for the military.
The Mayo Clinic said its Florida campus is the first to use a MRI-guided laser ablation to heat and destroy kidney and liver tumors. Other tumors are now on the hit list.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) research is about to get another boost in Queensland after a grant from the State Government gave a University of Queensland start-up, Magnetica Limited, the push it needed to seek grant-matching investors.
Available for free from Object Research Systems (ORS) Inc., ORS Visual Lite provides superior capabilities for the review, storage,...
Cambridge University researchers have developed a way to produce high-temperature superconductors. From protecting the power grid from blackouts to making MRI scanners cheaper, we are only in the beginning of the emerging superconductor industry.
This week's meeting of the Acoustical Society of America provides a sneak peek at some sound-related innovations that could have implications for the public.
The U.S. is sitting on a rare earth stockpile. Can it help against growing tech demand and a looming shortage?
The U.S. is sitting on large, untapped reserves of rare earth materials -- used in computers, phones, MRI machines and hybrid cars -- that could serve as a hedge against a looming shortage.
One environmental organization thinks it could be the rare earth elements needed to make high tech devices from batteries to LEDs. From MRI scanners to catalytic converters.
New microscope can show images with 100 million times greater resolution than those generated by an MRI scanner today, company said
A single scan can cost $750-1,000 and if it turns up something wrong surgery is often ordered routinely. Diagnosing based on pain, and considering surgery only after a period of rest, can save both scans and surgical suites.
Researchers at the University of Maryland are developing a robot able to detect and destroy breast cancer cells in a single session. After a tumor is located on an MRI, the robot will perform a biopsy of the breast while the patient is inside the scanner. 'If the biopsy displays cancerous cells, the robot will then insert a probe into the breast until it reaches the tumor. The probe will then burn the cancer cells until they are destroyed.' This looks great, but the researchers have only built a prototype. After they refine this robot, they'll need to go through clinical trials and obtain FDA approval. So this is not a robot that will appear on the medical market before several years. But read more...
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a technology widely used in medical applications. But so far, all the images of what is inside our bodies produced by MRI are just black and white. Now, a U.S. research team is developing injectable micromagnets which could bring color to MRI pictures. The researchers also point out that these 'new micromagnets also could act as smart tags identifying particular cells, tissues, or physiological conditions, for medical research or diagnostic purposes.' As the technique has not yet been validated on animals, several years will be necessary before it can be used on humans. But read more...
The number of phones being handed in for recycling has sky-rocketed in NSW and Victoria in the lead up to Telstra's shutdown of its CDMA network.
Officially the winner of the Siemens Win an MRI contest was Lockport Memorial Hospital in Lockport, NY, near Buffalo. Siemens decided to give a second MRI to Sumter Regional Hospital, after company officials visited and heard its story.
What does last night's dinner have in common with your old PC? They get thrown out when their value flatlines. ZDNet Australia asks why Australians hoard old PCs.
The hospital with the most votes wins a MAGNETOM Essenza, a new 1.5 Tesla model it says is lighter, and uses less energy, than earlier MRIs. Publicity will help Siemens sell more units to large, urban hospitals that can afford it.
