Real-time imaging of adatom-promoted graphene growth on nickel
Single adatoms are expected to participate in many processes occurring at solid surfaces, such as the growth of graphene on metals. We demonstrate, both experimentally and theoretically, the catalytic role played by single metal adatoms during the technologically relevant process of graphene growth on nickel (Ni). The catalytic action of individual Ni atoms at the edges of a growing graphene flake was directly captured by scanning tunneling microscopy imaging at the millisecond time scale, while force field molecular dynamics and density functional theory calculations rationalize the experimental observations. Our results ...

CereMetrix wins FDA nod for neuroimaging analytics platform
CereHealth subsidiary CereMetrix said yesterday it won FDA 510(k) clearance for its CereMetrix Silver neuroimaging analytics and quantification platform designed to detect, quantify and analyze brain function. The CereMetrix Silver image viewer is designed to analyze brain images from positron emission tomography, single-photon emission computerized tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography scans, the Denver-based company said. “With the current technology, functional brain imaging results are blended across entire anatomical areas, allowing far more subjectivity in the physician’s interpre...

In early December, my urine turned brown. The following day I felt feverish and found it hard to pee. I soon realised I had a urinary tract infection. It was unpleasant, but seemed to be no big deal. Now I know that it might have saved my life.The doctor told me this infection was unusual in a man of my age, and hinted at an underlying condition. So I had a blood test, which revealed that my prostat...

Sleep apnea study finds male-female differences in cerebral cortex thickness, symptoms
FINDINGSResearchers from the UCLA School of Nursing examined clinical records and magnetic resonance imaging brain scans of patients who were recently diagnosed with sleep apnea, and discovered several apparent connections between thinning of the brain ’s cerebral cortex and apnea symptoms. The researchers also could discern distinct changes in brain structures and concurrent symptoms that differed between men and women. For example, more regions of the superior frontal lobe were thinner in women with apnea than men or control groups, which migh t explain enhanced cognitive deficits among women with the disorder.

Researchers know that a condition as complicated as Alzheimer’s can’t be traced to a single or simple cause. Genetic factors contribute to the degenerative brain disorder that robs people of their memory, and biological process related to aging play a role as well. But in recent years, scientists have uncovered some behaviors that may also influence Alzheimer’s risk. In the latest study published in JAMA Neurology, a group of them report how sleep — daytime sleepiness, in particular — may be an indicator of Alzheimer’s.

ConclusionsThere were sizeable variations between IOS with both higher and lower FLD and FLA than IMPR. High FLD was more related to high localized finish line resolution and non-uniform tessellation, than to high overall resolution. Topography variations were low. Color improved finish line identification in some IOS.It is imperative that clinicians critically evaluate the digital impression, being aware of varying technical limitations among IOS, in particular when challenging subgingival conditions apply.

A simple blood test may have the potential to replace the more costly and burdensome CT scan for monitoring post-treatment recurrence and progression of pleural mesothelioma.

BMC Cancer published results of their study — a first of its kind — which included the long-term monitoring of 41 patients with mesothelioma who had either completed chemotherapy or other supportive care. “With this stu...
