According to an open-access article in the American Journal of Roentgenology, a 3D spiral gradient recalled echo sequence could help conquer certain challenges of conventional Cartesian sequences for head and neck MRI.Read More
The highest-ever resolution imaging of an infectious prion provides the first atomic-level data of how these abnormal proteins are assembled to cause fatal neurodegenerative diseases in people and animals—and how they can be potentially targeted by new therapies.Read More
A new study suggests athletes with a history of concussion may show more brain injury from a later concussion, particularly in middle regions of the brain that are more susceptible to damage, when compared to athletes with no history of concussion.Read More
