A light bulb goes off when a neurosurgeon sees plastic surgeons use sterile maggots to remove dead tissue.
Researchers are using laser-induced ultrasound to provide much earlier detection of aggressive melanoma cancers, before tumors even have a chance to form.
Research on nearly 3 million Danish adults suggest that a decade of cell phone use does not increase the risk for at least some types of non-cancerous brain tumors.
A Danish study says use of cell phones does not raise the risk of brain tumors. It immediately comes under fire from groups that say the danger is real.
A new material developed at the University of Virginia simplifies the imaging of low-oxygen regions of tumors associated with cancer aggressiveness.
A paper by a group of electromagnetic radiation activists says there's a "significant" risk of brain tumors from cell phone use, especially for children.
When it comes to detecting cancer, ultrasound is simply too low-res to compare with CT scans and MRIs. Up the resolution, though, and the less expensive, radiation-free alternative could become an ideal alternative.
Scientists at Washington University in St. Louis say it may someday be possible to perform a single test to screen for a wide range of cancer types.
Instead of relying on drugs to kill tumors, Georgia Tech researchers engineer artificial pathways to lure malignant cells to their death, using a "Pied Piper" approach to treating cancer.
Researchers soon will unveil an imaging method that documents developing tumors at the molecular level.
