Digital switches aid gastroscopy procedures

Digital switches aid gastroscopy procedures
Digital switches in the form of the Red Rock RR110/120/130 series from Coto are in stock at Rutronik. Thanks to their very low energy consumption and small size, they are suitable for use in numerous fields, ranging from medical engineering to wildlife tracking to automotive. The RR120 switch is a TMR-based solution that contains a small SOT-23 package with high magnetic sensitivity and low energy consumption.

A non-invasive way to diagnose brain tumours

A non-invasive way to diagnose brain tumours
EU-funded researchers working within the HELICOID project are using hyperspectral imaging techniques to achieve better localisation of malignant tumours during surgical procedures. Brain cancer is one of the most severe and challenging diseases we face. Despite great advancements in aggressive new treatments that combine surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy, treatment for persistent or locally recurrent brain tumours remains elusive.

MRI could bridge neuro-technologies for diagnostics

MRI could bridge neuro-technologies for diagnostics
  A  technology being developed at Purdue University could provide an affordable, smart, self-learning device that, when placed into existing MRI machines could allow medical professionals to monitor patients more effectively and safely, by performing concurrent medical imaging and recording for diagnostic purposes.

CRT-ICDs alleviate atrial lead without sacrificing diagnostics

CRT-ICDs alleviate atrial lead without sacrificing diagnostics
BIOTRONIK won FDA approval and is releasing in the U.S. its Intica DX and Intica cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT)-DX implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD). The DX indicator refers to BIOTRONIK’s technology that obviates the necessity of having an atrial lead to monitor the electrical activity in the atrium, a way that cardiologists use to spot atrial fibrillation and other more serious arrhythmic events.

Breath sensor to spot diseases and monitor health

Breath sensor to spot diseases and monitor health
Breath pattern recognition is a futuristic diagnostic platform. Simple characterising target gas concentrations of human exhaled breath will lead to diagnose of the disease as well as physical condition. A research group under Prof. Il-Doo Kim in the Department of Materials Science has developed diagnostic sensors using protein-encapsulated nanocatalysts, which can diagnose certain diseases by analysing human exhaled breath.

Microscopy technique enables more informative biopsies

Microscopy technique enables more informative biopsies
When trying to use light and conventional optics to image a biological sample at great detail, one eventually encounters the fact that objects smaller than the light’s wavelength cannot be resolved. While technological tricks have been developed to overcome this limitation in some ways, a team of researchers from MIT and Harvard have instead focused on swelling the sample so it is large enough to be examined in detail using light microscopy.

Device detects tumour cells in blood

Device detects tumour cells in blood
Researchers at the URV’s Department of Physical and Inorganic Chemistry, led by the ICREA researcher, Ramon Álvarez Puebla, and the professor of Applied Physics, Francesc Díaz, and the Department of Clinical Oncology of the HM Torrelodones University Hospital, have patented a portable device that can detect tumour cells in blood. The device counts the number of tumour cells in a blood sample in real time and is thus a highly effective tool for improving the monitoring, treatment and diagnosis of cancer.

PET tracer detects small blood clots

PET tracer detects small blood clots
Blood clots in veins and arteries can lead to heart attack, stroke, and pulmonary embolism, which are major causes of mortality. In the featured article of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine (JNM), German researchers show that targeting GPIIb/IIIa receptors, the key receptor involved in platelet clumping, with a 18F labeled ligand is a promising approach for diagnostic imaging. Current imaging modalities rely on structural characteristics, such as vascular flow impairment, and do not address the critical molecular components.

Diabetes biomarkers for early diagnostics

Diabetes biomarkers for early diagnostics
Early diagnosis of diabetes and effective monitoring of its progression could help prevent the development of chronic kidney disease. Towards this goal, European scientists developed a simple urine test. Diabetes constitutes a major risk factor for irreversible kidney malfunction. Currently, there is no therapy for diabetic nephropathy, just treatment to delay disease progression.

Electrode helmet can diagnose brain injury

Electrode helmet can diagnose brain injury
In Europe alone, there are over a million people suffering from traumatic brain injury (TBI). European researchers developed a novel portable technology to significantly improve disease diagnosis and prognosis. TBI or intracranial injury occurs when external forces injure the brain and the severity could be mild, moderate or severe. It is recognised as a major public health concern, especially for teenagers and young adults, as it can significantly disrupt education, working ability, and quality-of-life in general.
