Brain Tumor Research News

For select indications including many primary and metastatic brain tumors, stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) is proven to be an effective alternative to invasive surgery, thus potentially improving patient quality of life while significantly reducing the cost of care.

In a study led by Michigan Medicine, researchers combined laser imaging with artificial intelligence to help predict brain tumor diagnosis within minutes.
A new publication in Nature Medicine highlights how the NIO Imaging System from Invenio Imaging allows surgeons to get a real-time image of a piece of tissue from surgery and use artificial intelligence to get a rough diagnosis of the tissue’s composition.

A new study shows that children with medulloblastoma who were treated with radiotherapy had better intellectual outcomes when the radiation was delivered as proton beam therapy compared to traditional photon radiotherapy.

Researchers at NYU Grossman School of Medicine and the University of Michigan are proposing a new approach that may lead to more accurate brain tumor diagnoses by combining advanced optical imaging and artificial intelligence.

Johns Hopkins researchers report that a type of biodegradable, lab-engineered nanoparticle they fashioned can successfully deliver a "suicide gene" to pediatric brain tumor cells implanted in the brains of mice. The poly(beta-amino ester) nanoparticles, known as PBAEs, were part of a treatment that also used a drug to kill the cells and prolong the test animals' survival.

An optical imaging technique paired with an AI algorithm was able to analyze a tissue sample in less than 150 seconds, demonstrating how machine-learning can make a huge impact in the operating room. The AI was also able to detect some details conventional practices could miss. The new research comes as AI has recently proven to outperform humans in diagnosing breast and lung cancer.
