Swiss make clinical use of cinematic rendering
August 23, 2019 -- The highly detailed, photorealistic appearance of cinematic rendering reconstructions makes it ideal for teaching, according to a team of researchers from Zurich. They have used cinematic rendering to create images of head CT and conebeam CT scans, and have integrated them into the evaluation of maxillofacial anatomy and pathology.  Discuss
MRI reveals molecular composition of the brain
August 22, 2019 -- Researchers from Israel have developed a model that compares the water content of the brain with measures of physical properties obtained from MRI scans to calculate the molecular composition of lipids in the brain. The technique may help detect changes in the biological makeup of the brain over time and identify key changes associated with diseases like Alzheimer's.  Discuss
