Max Planck scientists succeed in filming organs and joints in real time using magnetic resonance imaging by Brian Ahier Posted Tue 31 Aug 2010 9:30pm "Please hold absolutely still": This instruction is crucial for patients being examined by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). It is the only way to obtain clear images for diagnosis. Up to now, it was therefore almost impossible to image moving organs using MRI. Max Planck researchers from Göttingen have now succeeded in significantly reducing t ... Read on »

Superior Method of Preparing Dendrimers for Use as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Contrast Agents by nih.gov Posted Mon 10 Aug 2009 5:00pm Description of Invention: There is a need to develop more efficient gadolinium-containing (Gd) contrast agents for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as the small molecules presently used clinically have the disadvantage of being rapidly cleared from circulation and excreted by the kidneys. Dendrimer-based macromolecular MR ... Read on »
Reliability of certain functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies questionable by Kathy J. Patient Expert Posted Wed 17 Mar 2010 9:41am © istockphoto Some magnetic resonance imaging studies could be less reliable than has been presumed. Brain-scanning studies that claim to link facets of personality, memory and emotion to specific brain activity may not be easy to reproduce, a new study concludes.,!–more–> Source: Nature ...
