First neonatal MRI device receives FDA Clearance

First neonatal MRI device receives FDA Clearance
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration cleared the first magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) device specifically for neonatal brain and head imaging in neonatal intensive care units (NICU). “Although we can use traditional MRI scanners to image neonates, taking babies outside of the neonatal intensive care unit to MRI suites presents great challenges,” said Vasum Peiris, M.D., M.P.H., chief medical officer for pediatrics and special populations at FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health.

Tools help surgeons find liver tumours

Tools help surgeons find liver tumours
The liver is a particularly squishy, slippery organ, prone to shifting both deadly tumors and life-preserving blood vessels by inches between the time they’re discovered on a CT scan and when the patient is lying on an operating room table. Surgeons can swab the exposed liver lightly on the surface with a special stylus, capturing the shape of the organ during surgery, and a computer can match that image with the CT scan on a screen.

Electronics allow long term on-skin health monitoring

Electronics allow long term on-skin health monitoring
  At the University of Tokyo in Japan researchers have developed a new method of producing stretchable electronics that are breathable, don’t irritate the skin, and weigh next to nothing. The development may lead to ubiquitous use of on-skin electronic sensors to monitor the body continuously in a variety of places and ways.

ECG Analysis Platform receives FDA Clearance

ECG Analysis Platform receives FDA Clearance
Cardiologs Technologies SAS has announced that it has received FDA clearance of its Cardiologs ECG Analysis Platform, a cloud-based cardiac monitoring-analysis web service powered by AI. Cardiologs aids physicians in screening for atrial fibrillation (AFib) and other arrhythmias using long-term ambulatory ECG monitoring recordings. The Cardiologs system is also CE-marked in Europe.

Monitoring magnetic nanoparticles in living organisms

Monitoring magnetic nanoparticles in living organisms
A new method for real-time monitoring of magnetic nanoparticles in organs such as the liver has been described by Brazilian researchers in the journal Nanomedicine: Nanotechnology, Biology and Medicine. As the authors explain, this type of nanoparticle has been tested in animal models for the diagnosis and treatment of several diseases, including cancer. Future possibilities for its use include as a drug carrier or as a contrast agent in nuclear magnetic resonance imaging.

MRI compatible robot to allow precise biopsies

MRI compatible robot to allow precise biopsies
Engineers at the University of Twente in The Netherlands have unveiled a pneumatically powered robot, called Stormram 4, able to take biopsy samples while inside an MRI machine. In tests conducted by the researchers on phantom models of the breast the investigators were able to achieve sub-millimeter precision in reaching their targets. Currently, scans are taken prior to a biopsy and are used to guide the needle.

Test finds signs of sepsis in a single drop of blood

Test finds signs of sepsis in a single drop of blood
A new portable device can quickly find markers of deadly, unpredictable sepsis infection from a single drop of blood. A team of researchers from the University of Illinois and Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana, Illinois, completed a clinical study of the device, which is the first to provide rapid, point-of-care measurement of the immune system’s response, without any need to process the blood.

CathVision: a smoother look at cardiac electrograms

CathVision: a smoother look at cardiac electrograms
CathVision aims to reduce noisy electrogram signals during cardiac arrhythmia ablation procedures. With cleaner signals, cardiologists can better locate the areas that generate arrhythmias and ablate them. For example, with a higher signal-to-noise ratio, cardiologists can have higher confidence when probing the low-voltage areas of the heart. This is important because cardiac arrhythmias, which affect 2% of the world, remain an untreatable challenge in about 50% of ablation procedures.

Micra pacemaker survives flight to space

Micra pacemaker survives flight to space
The Medtronic Micra is the smallest pacemaker currently available. It’s so small that it’s delivered via a catheter and attached to the endocardium of the heart, where its internal battery paces the heart for years. It’s certainly an incredible piece of technology, but a high school student had a wild idea of testing whether such a fine piece of electronics can withstand a flight into space.

Yeast-based tool provides worldwide pathogen detection

Yeast-based tool provides worldwide pathogen detection
Columbia University researchers have developed a tool that is likely to revolutionise the way we detect and treat pathogens in everything from human health to agriculture to water. Using only common household baker’s yeast, they’ve created an extremely low-cost, low-maintenance, on-site dipstick test they hope will aid in the surveillance and early detection of fungal pathogens responsible for major human disease, agricultural damage and food spoilage worldwide.
