Researchers are improving the first nanoscale MRI technique developed at MIT in 2009 in the hopes of imaging such biological samples as viruses at extremely high resolution.
Researchers say the tech, which could help spot heart disease, multiple sclerosis, specific cancers, and more, may make MRI scans a standard procedure during annual exams.
Using MRI to measure brain activity, researchers at Stanford find that kids with autism have a weaker connection between language and reward centers than kids without autism.
Musician Sivu lies in an MRI scanner, repeatedly singing his new song "Better Man Than He," for almost three hours to make the three-minute video.
The video, which captures the second stage of labor, offers a new view of the position and movement of a fetus through the birth canal.
An algorithm developed at MIT's Research Laboratory of Electronics could reduce scan time from 45 minutes to 15 minutes.
Medical researchers at the University of Utah are using MRI to identify areas in the brains of people with autism that do not communicate properly.
Medtronic's Revo MRI SureScan is designed for use during magnetic resonance imaging. The company says it will begin shipping the $5,000 to $10,000 devices immediately.
Charité Hospital in Berlin says today's MRI of a live birth--the culmination of two years of research as they built a scanner to fit the woman during labor--is a world first.
The National Institutes of Health award GE Global Research and the Mayo Clinic a five-year, $5.7 million grant to study imaging tech used to study neurological and psychiatric disorders.
