Doctors develop new way to use MRI to predict pregnancy complications
FINDINGSUCLA scientists have developed anew way to use magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, to scan the placenta. The noninvasive approach offers valuable insights into how the mother ’s blood enters the placenta and sustains the fetus with oxygen and nutrients during early pregnancy. The technique breaks new ground because most previous studies on this subject occurred in the laboratory after childbirth.BACKGROUNDThe placenta is a temporary organ that joins a pregnant woman to her baby through the umbilical cord. Few methods exist for safely and accurately studying the placenta in early pregnancy. Ultrasound indirect...

HeartFlow stakes $90m step toward $150m Series E
HeartFlow took a $90 million step toward the $150 million it hopes to raise in a Series E round for the cardiac imaging technology it’s marketing. Redwood City, Calif.-based HeartFlow’s FFRct technology works by taking the data from a standard CT scan and applying algorithms that result in a color-coded 3D “map” detailing the changes in flow across coronary lesions. Last week reports surfaced that the company was eyeing a $150 million raise, which would vault it into “unicorn” territory with a $1.4 billion valuation.

How Physicians Perform Prehospital ECMO on the Streets of Paris
The objective of ECPR is to perfuse the brain while the cause of the cardiac arrest is sought and treated at a specialty hospital (e.g., by coronary angiography, CT scan, etc.). Indeed, the primary objective is to obtain return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC), however, long-term survival depends on the neurological prognosis of the patient. Once ECPR has been initiated, acceptable blood flow is restored to the whole body, and especially to the brain and coronary arteries in order to limit ischemic consequences. Many studies, both clinical and experimental, have shown that the blood flow delivered by ECPR is much highe...

Rural Hospitals Balk as Insurers Narrow Coverage Sites
Focuses on a specific Critical Access Hospital in Indiana to highlight the impact of a change in health insurance policy. Some health insurers no longer pay for outpatient MRI and CT scans unless they are done in free-standing imaging centers, which are typically less expensive. However, because hospitals have to have their imaging machines available at all times for emergencies, sending patients elsewhere can significantly affect their bottom lines, especially for small and rural hospitals. Additionally, this rule may force patients to travel further for care. (May require registration for full article.) (Source: News sto...

Egg accumulation with 3D embryos provides insight into the life history of a pterosaur
Fossil eggs and embryos that provide unique information about the reproduction and early growth of vertebrates are exceedingly rare, particularly for pterosaurs. Here we report on hundreds of three-dimensional (3D) eggs of the species Hamipterus tianshanensis from a Lower Cretaceous site in China, 16 of which contain embryonic remains. Computed tomography scanning, osteohistology, and micropreparation reveal that some bones lack extensive ossification in potentially late-term embryos, suggesting that hatchlings might have been flightless and less precocious than previously assumed. The geological context, including at leas...

Selective increase in CO2 electroreduction activity at grain-boundary surface terminations
Altering a material’s catalytic properties requires identifying structural features that give rise to active surfaces. Grain boundaries create strained regions in polycrystalline materials by stabilizing dislocations and may provide a way to create high-energy surfaces for catalysis that are kinetically trapped. Although grain-boundary density has previously been correlated with catalytic activity for some reactions, direct evidence that grain boundaries create surfaces with enhanced activity is lacking. We used a combination of bulk electrochemical measurements and scanning electrochemical cell microscopy with submi...

In this study, researchers used a CT scanner to analyze the arm and leg bones of living women, and compared them to those of Central European women who lived between 7,400 and 3,500 years ago—a time period that included early Neolithic agricultural eras into the Middle Ages. The living women were selected to represent a range of physical activity levels and included runners, rowers, soccer players and people with more sedentary lifestyles. The researchers found that the early Neolithic skeletons (women who lived between 7,400 and 7,000 years ago) had leg bones of similar strength to today’s female athletes. But...
