Liquid biopsies improve ovarian cancer diagnosis

Liquid biopsies improve ovarian cancer diagnosis
Nearly half of all cancers in women originate in the female reproductive organs. To improve disease outcome, efficient diagnostic tools and personalised interventions are urgently needed. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, and its high metastatic potential results in significant mortality. Ovarian cancer, although low in prevalence, has an overall poor survival rate given the asymptomatic early stage of the disease and delayed diagnosis.

Plasmonic sensor improves incipient cancer detection

Plasmonic sensor improves incipient cancer detection
A new plasmonic sensor developed by researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign will serve as a reliable early detection of biomarkers for many forms of cancer and eventually other diseases. The sensor has been proven reliable to detect the presence of the cancer biomarker carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) to the magnitude of 1 nanogram per milliliter. Most humans carry at least some amounts of CEA with an average range of 3-5 nanograms per milliliter.

Blood test offers improved breast cancer detection

Blood test offers improved breast cancer detection
A study published in Clinical Breast Cancer demonstrates that Videssa Breast, a multi-protein biomarker blood test to detect breast cancer, can help inform better decision-making after abnormal mammogram or other breast imaging results and potentially reduce use of biopsy by up to 67%. The study evaluated the performance of Videssa Breast among women under age 50.

Graphene-based sensor could improve diagnosis of asthma

Graphene-based sensor could improve diagnosis of asthma
Rutgers University-New Brunswick scientists have created a graphene-based sensor that could lead to earlier detection of looming asthma attacks and improve the management of asthma and other respiratory diseases, preventing hospitalisations and deaths. The sensor paves the way for the development of devices - possibly resembling fitness trackers like the Fitbit - which people could wear and then know when and at what dosage to take their medication.

Sensors can detect disease markers in breath

Sensors can detect disease markers in breath
A small, thin square of an organic plastic that can detect disease markers in breath or toxins in a building's air could soon be the basis of portable, disposable sensor devices. By riddling the thin plastic films with pores, University of Illinois researchers made the devices sensitive enough to detect at levels that are far too low to smell, yet are important to human health.

AI tech helps speed up detection of lung cancer

AI tech helps speed up detection of lung cancer
Infervision has introduced its deep learning solution to help radiologists identify suspicious lesions and nodules in lung cancer patients faster than ever before. The Infervision AI platform is the world's first to reshape the workflow of radiologists and it is already showing dramatic results at several top hospitals in China. The company founder, Chen Kuan, will present a talk on the company and its use of AI for medical diagnoses at the NVIDIA GPU Tech Conference in San Jose.

Virtual patients help aspiring doctors learn empathy

Virtual patients help aspiring doctors learn empathy
  Delivering bad news in a caring way — and coping with a patient’s reaction — is a key skill for doctors. Intuitive technology is helping medical students learn the best approaches.

Project to target inflammatory bowel diseases

Leti has announced a European Union project to develop a nanotherapy targeting the molecules involved in inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. An estimated 3 million people in Europe, mostly adolescents and young adults, have been diagnosed with inflammatory bowel diseases, which are chronic disorders of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract caused by immune reactions.

Computer identifies breast cancers on digital tissue slides

A deep-learning computer network developed through research led by Case Western Reserve University was 100% accurate in determining whether invasive forms of breast cancer were present in whole biopsy slides. Looking closer, the network correctly made the same determination in each individual pixel of the slide 97% of the time, rendering near-exact delineations of the tumours.

MR/RT system debuts at ESTRO 36

MR/RT system debuts at ESTRO 36
At the 36th ESTRO (European Society for Radiotherapy & Oncology) meeting, Elekta introduced Elekta Unity, a MR/RT system that integrates a premium diagnostic quality (1.5 Tesla) MRI scanner with an advanced linear accelerator and intelligent software. Elekta Unity is expected to deliver precisely-targeted radiation doses while simultaneously capturing the highest-quality MR images, which will allow clinicians to visualise tumors at any time and adapt the treatment accordingly.
