Ultrasound imaging can monitor the exact drug dose and delivery site in the brain

National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering

An ultrasound imaging technique called passive cavitation imaging was able to create an image and estimate the amount of a drug that crossed the blood-brain barrier to reach a specific location in the brain, according to a study by NIBIB-funded bioengineers at Washington University.

Researchers grow bone at rib to restore facial bone

National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering

Bioengineers used bone engineered in 3D-printed mold and grown alongside the ribs of sheep to successfully replace a portion of the animals’ jaw bones. They hope to develop the tissue regenerative procedure for human application .

Newswise: Artificial intelligence enables high quality CT scans with reduced radiation

Article ID: 714179

Artificial intelligence enables high quality CT scans with reduced radiation

National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering

A team of NIBIB-funded bioengineers at Rennselaer Polytechnic Institute developed an AI technique to rapidly convert low-dose CT scans to superior images compared to a conventional technique. Low-dose CT minimizes x-ray radiation to a patient.

Newswise: A super tool helps kids with autism improve socialization skills

Article ID: 713267

A super tool helps kids with autism improve socialization skills

National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering

A team of NIH-funded researchers at Stanford University Medical School has found that children with autism improved measurably on a test of socialization and learning when their therapy included an at-home intervention with Google Glass. The smart system of eye wear and mobile-phone-based games helped the children with autism understand emotions conveyed in facial expressions.
