Nov. 2, 2021—Vanderbilt is opening two of the newest generation of hybrid operating rooms, which each combine a traditional operating room with the latest advanced imaging equipment.
Feb. 4, 2021—When people go to an emergency room after being injured, suspicious images may show up on their imaging scans that are unrelated to their injuries but may be indicative of cancer. A team at Vanderbilt University Medical Center recently established a better process for ensuring these patients receive follow-up diagnostic care, an initiative that is already receiving national recognition.
Dec. 22, 2020—Images of cells and tissues are a critical part of biomedical research as they show which molecules or proteins are present and where these molecules are located in the tissue. Using increasingly sophisticated microscopes and imaging approaches, scientists can now look at more than 40 different molecules at once, an approach known as multi-plex imaging, where in the past they could only look at three or four molecules at a time.
Nov. 16, 2020—Changes in connectivity in the brain’s white matter may be a novel neuroimaging biomarker for assessing Alzheimer’s disease progression.
May. 21, 2020—Researchers are using imaging and diagnostic pathology to examine postmortem hearts donated by victims of COVID-19 to gain a better understanding of how the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 affects the heart.
Nov. 7, 2019—GE Healthcare has awarded researchers in the Vanderbilt University Institute of Imaging Science $2.5 million in funding to develop PET tracer that will determine the effectiveness of immunotherapy in patients early in their treatment course.
Aug. 22, 2019—New CT technology at Children’s Hospital is changing the medical imaging landscape for young children and adolescents.
May. 9, 2019—VUIIS has partnered with the Vanderbilt University Fine Arts Gallery to scan and create replicas of ancient Mesoamerican artifacts for a hands-on experience in the gallery’s upcoming exhibition.
