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.
Jan. 31, 2019—A Vanderbilt initiative to develop predictive imaging technologies that clinicians can use to better match patients with personalized care has received National Cancer Institute (NCI) funding.
Mar. 15, 2018—A new integrated imaging approach makes it possible to probe the molecules involved in invasive infections and can be broadly applied to any health or disease state.
