Simpler and faster microscopy system enabling broader biomedical applications
Optical-resolution photoacoustic microscopy (OR-PAM) has demonstrated great values in biomedical research. However, most OR-PAM systems suffer from limited imaging speed due to their inherent design limitation. A novel, two-dimensional multifocal OR-PAM system using a single-element ultrasonic transducer has been proposed. This system, termed as MFOR-PAMER, enables 400 times shorter scanning time than a conventional OR-PAM system at the same resolution and laser repetition rate. This system is envisaged with promising potential for many biomedical applications. (2020-08-12)

Scientists suggest device to make breast MRI more effective
Magnetic resonance imaging is becoming increasingly popular as a method of diagnosing diseases. Standard scanners are multifunctional, making it possible to cut down on the costs of specialized equipment. On the other hand, this leads to images of lower quality, especially when relatively small areas need to be examined. A group of Russian scientists, including ITMO University researchers, has proposed a system that can be used to update existing MRI scanners. It will allow conducting breast MRI using standard scanners without specialized equipment. (2020-08-04)

Between shark and ray: The evolutionary advantage of the sea angels
Angel sharks are sharks, but with their peculiarly flat body they rather resemble rays. An international research team led by Faviel A. López-Romero and Jürgen Kriwet of the Institute of Palaeontology has now investigated the origin of this body shape. The results illustrate how these sharks evolved into highly specialised, exclusively bottom-dwelling ambush predators and thus also contribute to a better understanding of their threat from environmental changes. The study is published in the journal Scientific Reports. (2020-08-04)
