Portable 3D scanner assesses patients with elephantiasis

Portable 3D scanner assesses patients with elephantiasis
An estimated 120 million people worldwide are infected with lymphatic filariasis, a parasitic, mosquito-borne disease that can cause major swelling and deformity of the legs, a condition known as elephantiasis. Health-care workers rely on leg measurements to assess the severity of the condition. However, measuring legs that are severely swollen often proves cumbersome and impractical.

HeartyPatch: an open-source ECG for heart rate tracking

HeartyPatch: an open-source ECG for heart rate tracking
Team Protocentral, an open source hardware firm from Bangalore, India, is raising crowdfunds to release its HeartyPatch device. The HeartyPatch is a single lead ECG patch that can track the heart rate and heart rate variability (HRV) when stuck to the chest. Similar devices have been developed and commercialised previously, but the HeartyPatch provides open source access to the software running it, allowing anyone to implement it for unique use cases.

MAGNETOM Terra 7T MRI scanner receives FDA approval

MAGNETOM Terra 7T MRI scanner receives FDA approval
The FDA has cleared the MAGNETOM Terra MRI scanner from Siemens Healthineers – the first-ever 7 Tesla MRI cleared for diagnostic imaging. This advanced ultra-high-field scanner produces cross-sectional images of the head and knee, and is intended for patients over 66 lbs. The system’s neurological and musculoskeletal (MSK) applications have the potential to help physicians achieve unprecedented breakthroughs in clinical care by revealing functional and anatomical details not visible at lower magnet field strengths.

Test reveals antibiotic-resistant bacteria in 30 minutes

Test reveals antibiotic-resistant bacteria in 30 minutes
The discovery of antibiotics in the early part of the 20th century changed modern medicine. Simple infections that previously killed people became easy to treat. Antibiotics' ability to stave off infections made possible routine surgeries, organ transplants, and chemotherapy for the treatment of cancer. But because of overuse and misuse, antibiotics are losing their effectiveness.

Gold 'nanoprobes' used to track blood flow in tiny vessels

Gold 'nanoprobes' used to track blood flow in tiny vessels
Scientists have designed gold nanoparticles, no bigger than 100 nanometres, which can be coated and used to track blood flow in the smallest blood vessels in the body. By improving our understanding of blood flow in vivo the nanoprobes represent an opportunity to help in the early diagnosis of disease. Light microscopy is a rapidly evolving field for understanding in vivo systems where high resolution is required.
