Novel Imaging Tool Estimates Energy Production in Mitochondrial Diseases

Fitness tools that monitor your daily use of energy, from counting steps to tracking sleep, have exploded in popularity. Researchers are developing better noninvasive, high-resolution methods to estimate how well the fundamental source of that energy — your mitochondria — are working, and they have recently had some important successes.
