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.

Method helps rule out heart valve infection

A risk assessment system developed by researchers at Lund University in Sweden shows which patients, with a certain type of streptococcal bacteria in the blood, need to be examined for a heart valve infection – a serious condition requiring prolonged medical treatment. “Our assessment system can help reduce unnecessary examinations of low-risk patients”, says Torgny Sunnerhagen, one of the researchers behind the study.

Integrated lab-on-a-chip quickly detects multiple pathogens

Integrated lab-on-a-chip quickly detects multiple pathogens
  A multidisciplinary group that includes the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the University of Washington at Tacoma has developed a novel platform to diagnose infectious disease at the point-of-care, using a smartphone as the detection instrument in conjunction with a test kit in the format of a credit card.

Sound waves achieve single cell level sorting technology

Sound waves achieve single cell level sorting technology
Sound wave enables the sensation of hearing, and is an important way of communicating in the animal world. In physics, sound is considered as a mechanical vibration that can propagate in gases, liquids and solids. A research team from the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD), led by Assistant Professor Dr Ye Ai, is studying the interactions between ultrasound (beyond the audible limit of human hearing) and micron-sized objects (e.g. biological cells) suspended in aqueous solutions.

Accelerating development of computer-aided medical diagnosis system

Accelerating development of computer-aided medical diagnosis system
Cadence Design Systems has announced that Hiroshima University is using Cadence technology in its development of a computer-aided diagnosis system for colorectal endoscopic images. Led by Associate Professor Koide of the Research Institute for Nanodevice and Bio Systems (RNBS), the team developed the computer-aided diagnosis system using the Cadence Tensilica Vision P6 digital signal processor (DSP) core for convolutional neural network (CNN) processing and support vector machine (SVM) classification.

Could a smell test aid early detection of Alzheimer’s?

Could a smell test aid early detection of Alzheimer’s?
Nisha Pradhan was seven when she began to suspect she was missing out on something. Her sister seemed to have an uncanny knack for predicting what their mother was making for dinner. Pradhan, meanwhile, never had a clue. “I would just stare at her,” Pradhan said. “She’s younger than me - how does she know more than I do?” Now 21, Pradhan knows she has a limited ability to detect odour - including the smell of dinner cooking. Her situation is not unique: The sense of smell is often taken for granted, until it malfunctions.

Magnetic eyelid tracker helps diagnose diseases

Magnetic eyelid tracker helps diagnose diseases
Researchers at the Technion’s Andrew and Erna Viterbi Faculty of Electrical Engineering have developed a device that can diagnose diseases by means of an eyelid motion monitor (EMM). The project was published recently in Graefe’s Archive for Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology. Already in its developmental stages, the device has won several international awards, and was ranked in the top 20 in the Texas Instruments Innovation Challenge (TIIC) – Europe Design Contest.
