Predicting success of lung cancer drug
With the help of a new radioactive tracer, doctors can predict with more than 80 percent accuracy how well a widely-used lung cancer drug will combat tumors, according to researchers at Stanford.
Imaging program launches seminar series
A seminar series that aims to fosters cross-disciplinary discussions about medicine and disease will begin Jan. 31 with an event led by Douglas Lowy, deputy director of the National Cancer Institute.
Peering into kids’ bones
Mary Leonard, chair of the Department of Pediatrics at Stanford, works to understand exactly how chronic diseases hurt children’s bone health.
Chest X-ray algorithm
Stanford researchers have developed a deep-learning algorithm that evaluates chest X-rays for signs of disease.
Big advance in 3-D tissue imaging
Stanford scientists have found a relatively simple, low-cost fix that substantially improves images obtained via a widely used optical scanning technique, opening the door to "virtual biopsies."…
Diagnosing cancer without biopsy
A Stanford-led team of researchers has developed tiny bubbles that bind to malignant tumors, making them visible to ultrasound imaging.
Virtual reality helps surgery
Gina Milner’s successful surgery, the first at Packard Children’s to use the new imaging technology, is one of many examples of how virtual-reality techniques are now helping patients.
Stanford Medicine focuses on diagnostics
Researchers in the field of diagnostics are taking advantage of advances in biomedical research, engineering and computer technology to make diagnostics more informative and less invasive.
The way of the nanoparticle
A growing field called nanotechnology is allowing researchers to manipulate molecules and structures much smaller than a single cell to enhance our ability to see, monitor and destroy cancer cells in the body.
Mom’s voice lights up kids' brains
A far wider swath of brain areas is activated when children hear their mothers than when they hear other voices, and this brain response predicts a child’s social communication ability, a new study finds.
