Label-free microscope detects ovarian metastatic cancer

National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering

Cancer in the ovaries often metastasizes to the surrounding tissues, but is too small to be detected. Now a label-free microscopy technique is able to identify these regions with great accuracy, enabling early removal of these microscopic malignancies.

Tumor macrophage marker offers unique target for treatment

National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering

Macrophages are white blood cells that accumulate in tumors, and aid cancer progression. Now scientists have identified a surface protein found only on the macrophages residing in tumors, exposing a target for precise tumor treatments.

Newswise: Nanoparticles promote functional healing following spinal cord injury

Article ID: 716319

Nanoparticles promote functional healing following spinal cord injury

National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering

Paralyzing damage in spinal cord injury is often caused by the zealous immune response to the injury. NIBIB-funded engineers have developed nanoparticles that lure immune cells away from the spinal cord, allowing regeneration that restored spinal cord function in mice.

Newswise: To Assess a Cell’s Health, Follow the Glucose

Article ID: 716209

To Assess a Cell’s Health, Follow the Glucose

National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering

A new spectroscopic technique reveals that glucose use in live cells provides valuable information about the functional status of cells, tissues, and organs. Shifts in a cell’s use of glucose can signal changes in health and progress of disease.

Article ID: 714459

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 .

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.
