Mar. 9, 2018—The Vanderbilt University Institute of Imaging Science's Center for Small Animal Imaging is having an open house March 23.
Study finds common brain scanning technique maps electrical activity as precisely as more invasive methods
May. 25, 2017—A commonly used brain scanning technique can map electrical activity under the skull as precisely as more invasive methods that rely on probes or electrodes, researchers at Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) reported this month.
Apr. 27, 2017—Richard Abramson, M.D., will engage in creative program development as the Department of Radiology’s first Vice Chair for Innovation.
Sep. 22, 2016—Vanderbilt University Medical Center is the world’s first site to treat a patient in the TULSA-PRO Ablation Clinical Trial (TACT), which employs an emerging therapy that uses MRI guidance and robotically driven therapeutic ultrasound to obtain precise prostate cancer tissue ablation.
Dec. 15, 2015—John Gore, director of the Vanderbilt University Institute of Imaging Science, has been named a fellow of the National Academy of Inventors. Fellowship is granted to “academic inventors who have demonstrated a prolific spirit of innovation in creating or facilitating outstanding inventions that have made a tangible impact on society.”
Apr. 23, 2015—Vanderbilt University researchers have demonstrated, for the first time in a primate model, that injury disrupts neural signaling in the spinal cord and that these changes can be measured non-invasively with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).
Feb. 5, 2015—Imaging technologies and image-guided interventions will be highlighted during “Frontiers of Biomedical Imaging Science V” to be held May 12-15 at the Vanderbilt Student Life Center. The event is hosted by the Vanderbilt University Institute of Imaging Science (VUIIS).
