July 12, 2016

Researchers from Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego have designed and built a diver-operated underwater microscope to reveal a never-before-seen view of the underwater world.

Imaging Biomarker Distinguishes Prostate Cancer Tumor Grade

June 1, 2016

…long used magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to detect cancer but results of a University of California San Diego School of Medicine study describe the potential use of restriction spectrum imaging (RSI) as an imaging biomarker that enhances the ability of MRI to differentiate aggressive prostate cancer from low-grade or benign…

UC San Diego School of Medicine Researchers Receive $5 Million in Type 1 Diabetes Grants

October 24, 2016

There are many unanswered questions about the mechanisms that contribute to the onset of type 1 diabetes. Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine hope to answer some of them with two Type 1 Diabetes Special Statutory Funding Program grants from the National Institutes of Health totaling…

New Imaging Tool Advances Study of Lipid Biology

March 14, 2024

From flies to humans, there are many types lipids operating at once. Now, a team led by UC San Diego bioengineers presents what they believe is the first method for distinguishing multiple lipid subtypes in cells and tissue samples by using nondestructive label-free optical imaging methods.

Clear View of Nanoparticles Helps Researchers Evaluate New Form of Cancer Treatment

February 11, 2016

Clear images of minute packages meant to shield healthy cells from potent anti-cancer drugs have helped researchers evaluate a promising of new approach to chemotherapy.

Flexible Ultrasound Patch Could Make it Easier to Inspect Damage in Odd-Shaped Structures

March 23, 2018

…easier to perform ultrasound imaging on odd-shaped structures, such as engine parts, turbines, reactor pipe elbows and railroad tracks—objects that are difficult to examine using conventional ultrasound equipment. The ultrasound patch is a versatile and more convenient tool to inspect machine and building parts for defects and damage deep below…

Upgraded Radar Can Enable Self-Driving Cars to See Clearly No Matter the Weather

November 17, 2020

A new kind of radar could make it possible for self-driving cars to navigate safely in bad weather. Electrical engineers at UC San Diego improved the imaging capability of existing radar sensors so that they accurately predict the dimensions of cars in live traffic, even in fog.

New 3D Technology Can Repair Aneurysms Previously Deemed Inoperable

September 16, 2019

New technology from Cydar is allowing UC San Diego Health surgeons to repair aneurysms previously deemed inoperable.

Thin, Large-Area Device Converts Infrared Light into Images

May 27, 2021

An infrared imager developed by UC San Diego engineers could be used to see through smog and fog; easily locate blood vessels on a patient; and see through silicon wafers to inspect the quality of electronic boards. It is also slim, compact and less costly to fabricate than similar technologies.

A Better Way to Track Emerging Cell Therapies Using MRIs

September 19, 2014

Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, University of Pittsburgh and elsewhere describe the first human tests of using a perfluorocarbon (PFC) tracer in combination with non-invasive magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to track therapeutic immune cells injected into patients with colorectal cancer.
