How do you image the large and the small at the same time? We developed new 🔬 technology to image centimeter-scale specimens - including whole mouse brains 🧠 - with diffraction-limited resolution and without sectioning. #mesoscale #imaging…

🧵 (1/n)
ExA-SPIM is a technology based on innovations in (1) tissue processing and (2) large-scale microscopy 🔬. Our team developed new methods for expansion for microscopy (ExM) of large tissue volumes. #teamscience #expansionmicroscopy…

🧵 (2/n)
By combining ExM with a new SPIM system based on technologies from electronics metrology, ExA-SPIM pushes past the volumetric imaging barrier 🚧 that constrains previous imaging approaches. (inspired by recent plot from @Daetwyler_St, @RetoPaul) #lightsheet #microscopy

$mmat industry awareness 🧵1/7

@Metamaterialtec makes materials engineered with properties not found in nature, such as superconductivity, negative index of refraction, and cloaking abilities. They will revolutionize #industries like #aerospace, #defense, & #telecommunications!
META can create transparent #antennas with greater electrical efficiency for improved #communications; concentrate #solarenergy in a much smaller area for increased efficiency; or reduce the radar signature of ships and submarines for a #tactical advantage.
In addition to #telecommunications and #military applications, metamaterials could be used to make buildings more efficient by providing smart glass that manipulates light in ways that can't be achieved with traditional construction techniques. #StructuralStability

Tips on writing a NIH R01 on #AI. In last 6 weeks our group landed 4 @NIH / @theNCI R & U grants on #AI in #imaging & #medicine. I got a number of enquiries about grant writing tips. I share some thoughts below. Also free offer - Happy to review & provide f/b on your S aims page
1. Specific Aims page - Most important page of your proposal. Articulate the clinical unmet need, followed by your unique solution, your preliminary data, brief description of team, your approach/specific aims and most critically your success criteria. Sample SA page below.
2. Significance/Background - Most important section in your narrative. Focus on unmet clinical need. What is the status quo & why is it not sufficient? (cost, tech etc). What is needed ? How will this impact unmet need? Who will be impacted? How many? Who will use tech?

1/Controversy in radiology gets tense! The Mt Fuji sign for tension pneumocephalus is under scrutiny.When should you call it?
A #tweetorial about #imaging this important #neurosurgery complication
#medtwitter #FOAMed #FOAMrad #medstudent #neurorad #radres #meded #neurotwitter Image
2/Some believe that the peaked, mountain like appearance of the frontal lobes is a critical sign of a life-threatening complication & should be called & reported. Others believe it is too non-specific, is commonly seen when there isn’t tension & should be retired. Who’s right? Image
3/First, let’s clarify about what the Mt Fuji sign actually is. Most are familiar with the fact that large collections of pneumocephalus can compress the frontal lobes—making them look like the slopes of a mountain. But this isn’t actually enough to call Mt Fuji. Image

I see #NHSEx has published the slides from its @HDR_UK “Data Access & Discovery” event, charmingly subtitled “A Forest Through the TREs” - on YouTube, if you want to listen:

*I thought the phrase was “cannot see the forest for the TREs”, but hey...
Let’s take a look:…

One reason we use the category term #TRE to refer to Trusted Research (or any other use) Environments that meet the #FiveSafes is that everyone wants to call their own TRE something different, so no-one really knows what they mean...
Call yours what you like (e.g. for @ONS it's their Secure Research Service) but if it only does four #Safes, or three Safes - and if it isn’t also #consensual and fully #transparent - then it's not a #trustworthy TRE...

Finally, the #GoldacreReview is published! (During Parliamentary Easter holidays, mid-ping-pong on the #HealthAndCareBill...)

It's 221 pages - each PDF page is a double page spread - so this could be a lo-o-o-ong [Thread].

Here goes...
First point to note, in the Terms of Reference (p5), is that this is about "access to #NHSdata by #researchers, #commissioners, and #innovators" - i.e. #Planning and #CommercialReUse - so it is directly relevant to the operation of millions of people's #NationalDataOptOuts...

The DISCHARGE trial in online on the NEJM and it confirms what we all experience every day using CCT in a proper manner. CCT is safer, reliable and allows better management of stable patients with suspected obstructive CAD as compared to invasive strategy.
The main observation that comes to my mind however is still the very low prevalence of patients with obstructive CAD (25%) in both arms (CT and ICA). This is well known from previous studies and it is related to the selection criteria adopted for referral, partly.
The fact that still we send for an invasive and costly examination (CAG/ICA) this huge number of patients is simply astonishing in 2022. Healthcare cannot be managed like this, especially in universal systems like Italy, Germany, UK, Canada,...

It’s no secret that #EVT for AIS has been a complete game changer for the field resulting in dramatic reduction in death & disability

Join us to explore the #history of EVT in collaboration with @SVINJournal, to celebrate the inaugural issue Image
Many thanks to @Mahmoudneuro, #RaulNogueira and @DiogoHaussen whose review entitled:
👉“Tx Advancements in the Endovascular Management of Stroke” celebrates the advances in #ETV

🆓 #openaccess…
1st #Fun fact: Interventional treatment of AIS dates all the way back to 1950s‼️
Sussman & Fitch reported 3 cases of IA infusion of fibrinolytics
Didn’t work 😫. Probably because they were performed in a non-hyperacute fashion
But this laid the foundation for years of refinement Image

🚨 Interested in single-molecule imaging approaches and/or pore forming proteins? Check out this awesome work from Conall, James and Till at UNSW. Buckle up... 🧵

Hold up... if you haven't already done so - follow @Mol_Machines to keep up to date with their awesome single-molecule studies :)
In essence, the study uses #TIRF microscopy to extract #kinetic information, from movies like the one below, for the entire assembly pathway of the pore-forming protein, PFO. What might look like the night sky disappearing, is actually hundreds of independent pore-forming events.

In the #biotech #stocks #NGS field, there is a company that's recently IPOed and has now presented an update of their plans: $OMIC Singular Genomics @SingularGenomi1…
Their two planned instruments, the G4 and the PX, look physically a lot like competitors to the #Illumina NextSeq and NovaSeq, or the #MGI #DNBSEQ G400 and T7 instruments. But the PX is more of a multi-omics play rather than a higher throughput #NGS machine.
It seems we are about 1 year or 1.5 years away from Early Access / Commercial Launch for the PX, maybe around 6 months earlier for the G4 instrument.

Interested in doing/analyzing #neuroimaging studies in #infants or young #children? New pre-print by @GaabLab led by the wonderful @TedTuresky:
#Neuroimaging the rapidly developing #brain: Current challenges for #MRI studies in the first five years of life
Rapid and widespread changes in #brain anatomy and physiology in the first five years of life present substantial challenges for developmental #MRI studies. One persistent challenge is that methods best suited to earlier developmental stages are suboptimal for later stages
This new review describes the data acquisition, processing, & analysis challenges that introduce these potential biases when conducting & analyzing data from infants and young children & attempts to elucidate decisions & recommendations that can optimize developmental comparisons
