Flexible Ultrasound Patch Could Make It Easier To Inspect Damage In Odd-Shaped Structures

Researchers have developed a stretchable, flexible patch that could make it easier to perform ultrasound imaging on odd-shaped structures, such as engine parts, turbines, reactor pipe elbows and railroad tracks--objects that are difficult to examine using conventional ultrasound equipment.

The ultrasound patch is a versatile and more convenient tool to inspect machine and building parts for defects and damage deep below the surface. A team of researchers led by engineers at the University of California San Diego published the study in the issue of Science Advances.

The new device overcomes a limitation of today's ultrasound devices, which are difficult to use on objects that don't have perfectly flat surfaces. Conventional ultrasound probes have flat and rigid bases, which can't maintain good contact when scanning across curved, wavy, angled and other irregular surfaces. That's a consi

Brain Scans May Help Diagnose Neurological, Psychiatric Disorders

There are no laboratory tests to diagnose migraines, depression, bipolar disorder and many other ailments of the brain. Doctors typically gauge such illnesses based on self-reported symptoms and behavior.

Now, a new study shows that a kind of brain scan called functional connectivity MRI (fcMRI) – which shows how brain regions interact – can reliably detect fundamental differences in how individual brains are wired. As such, the technique potentially could be used to distinguish healthy people from people with brain diseases or disorders, and provide insight into variations in cognitive ability and personality traits.

The findings are published in Neuron.

“This is a step toward realizing the clinical promise of functional connectivity MRI,” said senior author Steven Petersen, PhD, the James S. McDonnell Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience in Neurology and a professor of neurosurgery,

What Is Testicular Cancer?

Testicular cancer is the most common form of cancer in men ages 15 to 35. The American Cancer Society (ACS) estimates that there will be approximately 9,310 new cases of testicular cancer diagnosed in the United States in 2018.Testicular cancer grows in the tissues of one or both testes—glands that are located in the scrotum.

Most cases of testicular cancer start out in the sperm-making cells known as germ cells. Testicular cancer can be classified into seminoma and nonseminoma. Although aggressive, both cancer types are curable even when metastatic.

Who Develops Testicular Cancer?

Any man can develop testicular cancer, but your risk of testicular cancer may be increased if you:

•have a history of undescended testicle
•have a family history of testicular cancer
•have HIV/AIDS

What Are the Symptoms of Testicular Cancer?

The symptoms of testicular cancer include:

Family Grateful 5-Year-Old Son’s Brain Tumor Treated With Proton Therapy

Hudson Brown, 5, of Grosse Pointe Farms, is like lots of kids his age: he’s passionate about Legos, T-ball, family and his favorite toy - Bumblebee, a Transformers robot.

Unlike most 5 year olds: he was diagnosed with a large brain tumor in January.

Unbeknownst to Hudson, one of the Transformers actors, Mark Wahlberg, would reach out to offer his support and prayers.

Super power

Like the super power of Transformers, his parents and doctors turned to a medical super power – protons, to destroy his cancer cells. Patrick and Megan Brown felt blessed. One of the most advanced proton therapy centers in the nation at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak is just minutes from their home. The center is one of just 28 proton therapy centers in the US and the only operational proton therapy center in Michigan.

What began as a trip to the ER at a major Detroit hospital for a debilitating headache,
