They could ultimately help save both military and civilian …

Now, researchers have taken an established imaging technology called ‘optical coherence tomography,’ or OCT, and integrated it with other instruments to bring about the next revolution in imaging by helping doctors provide safer, less painful and more effective care for women in labor and people …

Imaging scientists at Western University’s Robarts Research Institute have developed a better way to track the progression of Multiple Sclerosis from its earliest stages. Led by Ravi Menon, Ph.D., the researchers used what’s called ‘Quantitative Susceptibility (QS) Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI),’ to measure damage in …

Scientists from the University of Southampton, in collaboration with the Universities of Sheffield and Crete, have developed a new hybrid energy transfer system, which mimics the processes responsible for photosynthesis. …read more Source: EurekAlert

Since Fall 2012, USDA regulations require students across the country to take a fruit or vegetable with their lunch, a good intention that might easily go to the garbage. To help assess what’s really happening, UVM researchers have developed state-of-the-art digital imaging to measure healthy …
