Scientists propose self-cooling nano-speaker for MRIs

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.

Qld Uni start-up scores MRI grant

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.

MRI scans are too routine

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.

A robot to destroy breast cancer cells

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 in color?

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...
