Retinal imaging can improve Alzheimer’s detection

Retinal imaging can improve Alzheimer’s detection
A team of researchers at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles and NeuroVision Imaging, a Sacramento, California firm, have developed a retinal imaging system that could allow early detection of Alzheimer’s disease. One of the hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease is the accumulation of beta-amyloid protein in the brain. There are numerous ways to monitor levels of beta-amyloid in the nervous system, including cerebrospinal fluid analysis, or imaging techniques like positron emission tomography.

Blood test predicts prostate tumour resistance

Blood test predicts prostate tumour resistance
When bacteria develop antibiotic resistance, treatment with these medications becomes ineffective. Similarly, tumour cells can also change in such a way that renders them resistant to particular medications. This makes it vitally important for cancer patients and their doctors to determine as early as possible whether a specific therapy is working or not. A new blood test developed by researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) can predict drug resistance in patients with advanced prostate cancer.

AFE enables wearing your heart rate on your sleeve

AFE enables wearing your heart rate on your sleeve
The MAX30004 biopotential analogue front-end (AFE) from Maxim Integrated is in stock at Mouser Electronics. The device is a single-channel biopotential heart-rate detection AFE solution for wearable medical applications, such as chest bands and single-lead wireless patches for heart rate monitoring. It eliminates the need to extract and process electrocardiogram (ECG) data on its microcontroller for high-motion environments.

Improving diagnoses of chronic diseases in remote areas

Improving diagnoses of chronic diseases in remote areas
A new system developed by UCLA researchers could make it easier and less expensive to diagnose chronic diseases, particularly in remote areas without expensive lab equipment. The technology uses extremely simple optical hardware and a lens-free microscope, as well as sophisticated algorithms that help reconstruct the images of tissue samples.

Spectral analyser turns smartphone into diagnostic tool

Spectral analyser turns smartphone into diagnostic tool
Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have developed technology that enables a smartphone to perform lab-grade medical diagnostic tests that typically require large, expensive instruments. Costing only $550, the spectral TRI-Analyser from Bioengineering and Electrical & Computer Engineering Professor Brian Cunningham's lab attaches to a smartphone and analyses patient blood, urine, or saliva samples as reliably as clinic-based instruments that cost thousands of dollars.

Nanotechnology could help quickly diagnose Zika virus

Nanotechnology could help quickly diagnose Zika virus
Washington University in St. Louis researchers have developed a test that quickly detects the presence of Zika virus in blood. Currently, testing for Zika requires that a blood sample be refrigerated and shipped to a medical center or laboratory, delaying diagnosis and possible treatment. Although the new proof-of-concept technology has yet to be produced for use in medical situations, the test's results can be determined in minutes.

Partnership to integrate XYZ mechanisms in prototype instrument

Partnership to integrate XYZ mechanisms in prototype instrument
Medical device company ITL Group specialises in the design, development and manufacture of life-saving medical technology, diagnostic devices and analytical instruments for a range of customers, from start-ups to well-established international companies. ITL product developers recently teamed up with fellow engineers at Physik Instrumente (PI) to integrate XYZ mechanisms in a prototype instrument, using off-the-shelf components, rather than designing from scratch.

Imaging tracer allows early assessment of abdominal aortic aneurysm

Imaging tracer allows early assessment of abdominal aortic aneurysm
Yale University researchers have developed a way in which medical imaging could potentially be used to assess a patient’s rupture risk for abdominal aortic aneurysm. Delaying surgical treatment can be life-threatening, and this new type of imaging could allow physicians to diagnose disease and better plan its management. The study is presented in The Journal of Nuclear Medicine.

Noninvasive technique for probing cells could reveal disease

Noninvasive technique for probing cells could reveal disease
MIT engineers have devised a way to assess a cell’s mechanical properties simply by observation. The researchers use standard confocal microscopy to zero in on the constant, jiggling motions of a cell’s particles — telltale movements that can be used to decipher a cell’s stiffness. Unlike optical tweezers, the team’s technique is noninvasive, running little risk of altering or damaging a cell while probing its contents.
