Siemens Healthineers has been collaborating with the University of Cambridge to install a new type of MRI scanner, which will allow researchers to see detail in the brain as tiny as a grain of sand.
The Siemens 7T Terra MRI has the potential toÂ bring a new era of personalised treatments toÂ major illnesses, including cancer, dementia and mental health conditions. The cutting-edge machinery gives researchers the opportunity to study how the brain encodes information, including things like individual memories. This means the scanner will nowÂ be able to now pick up on extremely small structures, including those associated with the early stages of Alzheimer...
Gas Analyzers Meet Stringent Requirements of Respiration Calorimeters
Apr 7, 2012MEI Research is an engineering firm based in St. Louis Park, MN, that develops technologies to support research in nutrition and weight management.Â One of MEI's goals is to improve the design and construction of whole-body respiration calorimeters. These instrumented systems calculate energy expenditure by precisely measuring the amount of oxygen that the body converts by metabolism to carbon dioxide during periods from minutes up to several days. Calorimeters comprise sealed living areas, atmosphere controls and gas analyzers. Because the living areas contain thousands of times more air than respiratory volume the accuracy of the analytical systems that measure carbon dioxide (CO2) and oxygen (O2) concentrations is critical to overall performance...Â
