A GWAS that incorporated magnetic resonance imaging data for UK Biobank participants led to 45 previously undetected risk loci related to dilated cardiomyopathy.

Investigators teased out imaging signals and underlying biology that can differentiate the subset of brain cancers for which tumor DNA can be detected in blood. 

The new European initiative promises to deliver multiple new tests and methods for improving the treatment of breast cancer and rectal cancer.

Philips and its partners aim to combine liquid biopsy with magnetic resonance imaging to enable personalized cancer treatment.

Researchers from Stanford University School of Medicine and elsewhere examined the genetic underpinnings of functional networks that synchronize resting brain activity.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – T2 Biosystems today said that it has filed a 510(k) premarket submission with the US Food and Drug Administration for its T2Dx system and T2Candida assay.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The W.M. Keck Foundation has awarded $1 million to an investigator at the University of California, Davis to fund development of new molecular imaging tools.

The device could enable researchers to measure the total production of a target protein biomarker over periods of weeks, months, or possibly years, potentially providing data unavailable via single-time-point sampling techniques like blood draws, said one of the researchers.

The company made the disclosures as part of Agilent's fiscal second-quarter earnings report, which showed that total revenues grew 16 percent and that a net loss in the prior-year period swung to a profit in the current quarter.
