Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Fabrication of tips for scanning probe microscopy with enhanced resolutionCSIC has developed tips for scanning probe microscopy (SPM) where an isolated nanoparticle is placed at the apex of the tip. The method allows to tailor the shape, size and composition of the nanoparticle improving the measuring capabilities of the tips. These novel tips are suitable for techniques that combine imaging, such as SPM and spectroscopy like tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (TERS). Industrial partners manufacturers of laboratory equipment are being sought to collaborate through a patent license agreement. An offer for Patent Licensing

Syncoda Technologies posted this:US8238513 (B2) - IMAGING SYSTEM AND METHOD UTILIZING PRIMARY RADIATIONAn imaging system and method for producing an image based on primary radiation. A separate image based solely on scattered radiation may also be obtained and may be of practical interests. The separation of primary and scattered radiation is achieved by utilizing a small beam exposure and a cone beam exposure, then the primary and scatter images are reconstructed based on a pencil beam model or from a Monte Carlo method. Other embodiments disclosed include two-layer detector arrays or volumetric detector arrays that measure the relationship between the dose and the position, from which the primary and scattered radiation can be extracted. In addition, by limiting a readout time of a detector, primary radiation component may be read because of a delay in the scattered radiation.

Which ones are able to be concentrated on tumors and indicate their existence and localization by using techniques such as nuclear magnetic resonance imaging, positron emission tomography (PET), PET-CT, SPECT, SPECT/CT, PET/MRI and scintigraphy. Moreover, it eventually can be used as therapeutics agents (radiopharmaceuticals). This invention has as main purpose to confer greater sensitivity on imaging diagnosis techniques.

Low energy laser (light) irradiation has been shown to have bio-stimulatory beneficial effects on various biological processes in vitro, in vivo and also in clinical trails. We have explored the beneficial effects of light therapy (LT) on stem cells in the bone marrow in order to determine its potential application as cell therapy for the heart post myocardial infarction (MI). Preliminary results have shown that in the infarcted rat heart model the application of LT to the rat bone marrow (BM) in the hind leg 10 min and 4 hrs post MI caused a significant reduction of 79% and 75 % respectively in the scar tissue formed after MI. This is a novel, simple and non-invasive approach to improving heart function after heart attack in patients, and may also serve as a basis for cell therapy of other diseased organs. The fact that LT demonstrated efficacy in scar reduction 4 hours post MI, indicates its clinical relevance to treat patients post MI. Project ID : 2-2011-143
Fundació URV posted this:A robust breast cancer computer-aided diagnosis systemWe analyze breast cancer in mammographies, ultrasonographies, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and thermographies. Our analysis includes mass/normal breast tissue classification, benign/malignant tumor classification in mammograms and ultrasound images, tumor detection in thermograms, mammogram registration and analysis of the evolution of breast tumors. We also quantify and visualize the evolution of breast tumors in patients undergoing medical treatment. While the previous works mainly focus on analyzing one type of breast images, we implement a robust CAD system for detecting, classifying and studying the evolution of breast cancer. This CAD system analyzes breast cancer in several types of medical images. To implement our CAD system, we use computer vision, pattern recognition and machine learning methods. We also need to collect a large scale breast cancer dataset from hospitals. This dataset should include mammograms, ultrasound, thermograms and MRI images for the same patients. Our CAD gives accurate diagnosis results because it gathers information from different sources.
