Paving the Way in MRI for Detection, Diagnosis

Siemens Medical Solutions has introduced syngo BLADE, the newest Tim (Total imaging matrix) technology-powered MRI software. The technology is capable of imaging in neurological and orthopedic procedures. In cases of severe movement, syngo BLADE motion correction application allows facilities to increase patient throughput and decrease costs.
According to the company, the technology is ideal for pediatric and difficult-to-manage patients in neurological and orthopedic imaging because it is not affected by flow and motion. This application measures and corrects any motion, providing clear images by the continuous acquisition of low-resolution images. With the low sensitivity to movement, it allows medical professionals to focus on reducing sedation rates for pediatric and anxious patients, which in some cases can increase time efficiency.

Targeted MRI Could Pinpoint Aggressive Prostate Cancers Before They Spread

The ZD2-Gd probe, represented by the orange ball and green arrow, binds to the EDB-FN in the prostate cancer cells with high metastatic potential. This results in a strong MRI signal (upper right). Prostate cancer cells with low metastatic potential have no EDB-FN and so there is no MRI signal (lower right). Credit: Han, et al., Bioconjug Chem-Apr-2017
