Next Generation Imaging
Mickaël Tanter : "Development of a new generation of imaging technique". A discovery presented by Mickael Tanter, a director of research for Inserm, and his collaborators in the "Wave Physics for Medicine" team at the Institut Langevin, CNRS/ESPCI, have published an article in the journal Nature Methods, describing a very promising new imaging technique: fUltrasound (functional Ultrasound imaging of the brain). This is an ultrasensitive imaging technique based on studying blood flow. It allows very subtle changes in brain activity to be visualized. The resolution and sensitivity of this new technique makes it possible, for example, to monitor the development of an epileptic seizure over the whole of the brain of a small animal, a task that is currently not possible using functional MRI.
