Algorithm can diagnose pneumonia better than radiologists

Algorithm can diagnose pneumonia better than radiologists
Stanford researchers have developed an algorithm that offers diagnoses based off chest X-ray images. It can diagnose up to 14 types of medical conditions and is able to diagnose pneumonia better than expert radiologists working alone. A paper about the algorithm, called CheXNet, was published on the open-access, scientific preprint website arXiv.

Breast tumour localisation system receives FDA Approval

Breast tumour localisation system receives FDA Approval
Cianna Medical, Inc. has received FDA clearance of the SAVI SCOUT reflector for long term implant. The SAVI SCOUT reflector is an integral part of the SCOUT system for wire-free breast tumour localisation. This technology is the first and only non-radioactive implant used in wire-free localisation that can be implanted with no restrictions on the length of time the reflector can remain in the breast.

Polymer nanoagents can track tiny areas of diseased tissues

Polymer nanoagents can track tiny areas of diseased tissues
Polymer nanoagents that can 'light up' tiny areas of diseased tissues that conventional methods fail to detect, have been created by a research team led by Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. The nanoagents, known as 'semiconductor polymer nanoparticles' (SPNs), can store light energy from sources such as sunlight, near-infrared light or even light from mobile phones, and then emit long-lasting 'afterglow light'.

Laser scanner to detect cancer in less than 30 seconds

Laser scanner to detect cancer in less than 30 seconds
A team of European scientists has developed the world’s first cancer scanner that detects blood vessels grown by a malignant melanoma with an infrared laser beam in 30 seconds. Current skin cancer diagnosis can last a number of weeks and be very upsetting. Multiple stages can involve visiting a GP, being sent to a dermatologist for a skin biopsy, waiting for laboratory analysis, having a sentinel lymph node biopsy under general anaesthetic, and then having more tests if the cancer has spread.

Mobile technology improves outbreak triages around the world

Mobile technology improves outbreak triages around the world
With smartphones millions of times more powerful than the NASA Apollo computers that sent us to the moon in the 1960s, scientists have been eager to adapt them back here on Earth to better the planet. That's exactly what ASU Biodesign Institute researcher Tony Hu and postdoctoral researcher Dali Sun have recently demonstrated in the fight against infectious diseases.

Neuromuscular transmission module can confirm neuromuscular blocks

Neuromuscular transmission module can confirm neuromuscular blocks
In conjunction with the opening of the American Society of Anesthesiologists annual meeting in Boston, Mindray has announced the introduction of its Neuromuscular Transmission (NMT) Module for its Passport 17m and 12m monitors. The NMT Module provides a stimulus to a nerve in the hand and measures the response to that stimulus. The response provides an indication of the level of muscle relaxation in the patient under a neuromuscular blockade.

Abionic's abioSCOPE detects allergies in minutes

Abionic's abioSCOPE detects allergies in minutes
The United States Food and Drug Administration has just registered Abionic’s rapid allergy diagnostic system, which tests for sensitivity to four common respiratory allergens in the United States. This puts the EPFL spin-off on track to market its single-use capsules and testing platform in the US in 2018. It takes only five minutes and a single drop of blood for Abionic’s abioSCOPE to produce a preliminary yet highly reliable diagnosis of a patient’s allergies.
