[ Watch the Video: 3D Model Of Cyber-Centipede ] April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online In 1735, Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus introduced taxonomic descriptions that are designed to allow scientists to tell one species from another. A new study, published in Biodiversity Data Journal, describes a new futuristic method for describing new species that moves far beyond traditional ones. This new method combines next generation molecular methods, barcoding, and novel...

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory An iconic moment in the history of Hollywood movie magic was born in the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz when Judy Garland as Dorothy Gale stepped out of the black and white world of Kansas into the rainbow colored world of Oz. An iconic moment in the history of infrared imaging may have been born with the announcement of the first technique to offer full color IR tomography. A collaboration between researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence...

High-contrast, High-resolution CT Scans Possible At Low Dose
2012-06-05 06:55:54

Soft body tissue can now be imaged with incredible detail using X-rays thanks to a new low dose CT-scan technique Scientists have developed an X-ray imaging method that could drastically improve the contrast of computed tomography (CT) scans whilst reducing the radiation dose deposited during the scan. The new method is based on the combination of the high contrast obtained by an X-ray technique known as grating interferometry with the three-dimensional capabilities of CT. It is also...
