How to make ultrasound zap tumors in a moving organ
[Image courtesy of Fraunhofer Institute for Medical Image Computing]Researchers led by the Fraunhofer Institute for Medical Image Computing think they’ve overcome the challenges standing in the way of using ultrasound to kill cancer tumors in organs that move with breathing. Until now, health practitioners have mostly limited ultrasound to treating prostate cancer, bone metastases and uterine myoma, according to the Fraunhofer Institute (Bremen, Germany). Organs that move when a patient breathes are trickier, with doctors telling patients to hold their breath or putting the patients under anesthesia. The Trans-Fusi...

Redheads Experience The World Differently Than Everyone Else
Redheads’ hair isn’t the only thing that sets them apart. The genetic differences that give people fiery locks affects more than just the color of their hair and skin, according to the Reactions video above. For example, redheads are more sensitive to pain and cold temperatures. Small studies even show that redheads may require more anesthesia during surgery due to this sensitivity. While scientists have yet to figure out why this happens, they theorize that it has to do with a gene called MC1R. Redheads have a variant of this gene, which is what affects the process that alters their pigmentation in t...

Minimally-invasive migraine treatment for adults works on kids, too
[Image from Tagosaku on Flickr]Migraine treatment that has been safe for adults has recently proven to be safe for use in children as well. The minimally-invasive treatment only takes a few minutes for children and teenagers to be able to feel the effects. The treatment involves a sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG) block that does not need needles. It uses a small, flexible catheter that is put into each nostril that delivers a local anesthetic to the SPG, which has often been considered the nerve bundle that causes migraines, that is in the back of the nose. The treatment disables the SPG and resets the headache circuit, reduc...
