Neuro Imaging

Neuro imaging produces images of the structure or activity of the nervous system, usually the brain. It uses techniques like magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computerized tomography (CT).

Study Finds No Evidence that Gadolinium Causes Neurologic Harm

MR images through, A, C, E, basal ganglia and, B, D, F, posterior fossa at level of dentate nucleus. Images are shown for, A, B, control group patient 4, and the, C, D, first and, E, F, last examinations performed in contrast group patient 13. Regions of interest used in quantification of signal intensity are shown as dashed lines for globus pallidus (green), thalamus (blue), dentate nucleus (yellow), and pons (red).

PET Tracer Gauges Effectiveness of Promising Alzheimer's Treatment

Longitudinal PET imaging with 18F-AV45. PET imaging shows the average 18F-AV45 uptake per animal group at 8 and 13 months of age. A significant interaction of genotype treatment was observed in the cortex (p = 0.0248), hippocampus (p = 0.0071) and thalamus (p = 0.0084), indicating reduced [18F]-AV45 uptake in BACE1 inhibited transgenic mice.

Study Creates Navigational View of the Brain With X-ray Tomography

A "navigational map view" of a section of a mouse brain. Like the map view of an Earth imaging program, this image of a brain section takes cues from actual imaging performed with highest-energy X-rays at a synchrotron and turns them into a graphic depiction. The imaging concentrates on a mesa-scale of the brain analogous to the map view of Google Earth. The scale could be useful in studying how the brain computes.
