CLE released through Cook Medical

CLE released through Cook Medical
Cook Medical has announced that it’s making available the Cellvizio Confocal Laser Endomicroscopy (CLE) System from Mauna Kea Technologies, a company based in Paris, France. Using the system, urologists can microscopically analyze the cellular structure of tissues during ureteroscopic and cystoscopic procedures without taking any samples. The system comes with a choice of reusable probes that integrate a scanning laser and a detector that records the close-up image produced.

App with smartphone camera assesses heart health

App with smartphone camera assesses heart health
Want to know how healthy your heart is? Now there's an app for that. In a proof-of-concept clinical trial, engineers at Caltech, Huntington Medical Research Institute, and USC have demonstrated that the camera on your smartphone can noninvasively provide detailed information about your heart's health. What used to require a 45-minute scan from an ultrasound machine can now be accomplished by simply holding your phone up to your neck for a minute or two.

Microscope technique reveals structure of live embryos

Microscope technique reveals structure of live embryos
University of Illinois researchers have developed a way to produce 3D images of live embryos in cattle that could help determine embryo viability before in vitro fertilisation in humans. Infertility can be devastating for those who want children. Many seek treatment, and the cost of a single IVF cycle can be $20,000, making it desirable to succeed in as few attempts as possible. Advanced knowledge regarding the health of embryos could help physicians select those that are most likely to lead to successful pregnancies.

Limited space is no issue for coaxial cable

Limited space is no issue for coaxial cable
A Micro Coaxial Cable so fine and light it can pass through the eye of a needle, making it ideal for a wide range of applications where space is at a premium is in stock at Aerco. Alpha Wire’s Micro Coax is especially suitable for in-the-box medical devices such as medical probes, endoscopy systems and oximetry systems.

NIAID supports transplant imaging research

NIAID supports transplant imaging research
The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases has awarded Emory and Georgia Tech investigators a $2.4 million, five-year grant to study non-invasive imaging to detect immune rejection of transplanted organs. When transplant recipients see their doctors, they undergo tests to check whether their immune system is damaging their new organs. These are usually blood tests that check for kidney or liver function, at least to begin with. But to diagnose immune rejection, a biopsy is required.

Propagating light deeper into the human brain

Propagating light deeper into the human brain
  Dr. Vladislav Yakovlev, professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Texas A&M University, has been developing a more efficient way of propagating light through an opaque medium. Propagation of light refers to the way that light travels from one point to another, in this case, through a medium, such as human tissue.

Glowing tech helps surgeons remove hidden cancer cells

Glowing tech helps surgeons remove hidden cancer cells
  Surgeons were able to identify and remove a greater number of cancerous nodules from lung cancer patients when combining intraoperative molecular imaging (IMI) - through the use of a contrast agent that makes tumour cells glow during surgery - with preoperative positron emission tomography (PET) scans.

1270nm wavelengths open doors within the medical industry

1270nm wavelengths open doors within the medical industry
Debuting at the recent “LASER World of Photonics” show in Munich, LASER COMPONENTS has announced the arrival of new 1270nm laser diodes, extending the range from Seminex to 1270 - 1700nm. Studies and trials have demonstrated that 1270nm serves to enhance immune response to vaccines whilst avoiding side effects such as soreness, inflammation, erythema and tissue damage that are often associated with chemical adjuvants.

Optical clearing technique studies the inside of blood clots

Optical clearing technique studies the inside of blood clots
A new technique that makes blood clots optically clear is allowing researchers to use powerful optical microscopy techniques to study the 3D structure of dangerous clots for the first time. Although blood clots stop bleeding after injury, clots that block blood flow can cause strokes and heart attacks. The new approach could make it possible to use advanced light microscopy techniques such as confocal microscopy to correlate clinical symptoms with the 3D structure of clots from patients.
