Contact lens could measure blood glucose in the future

Contact lens could measure blood glucose in the future
Transparent biosensors embedded into contact lenses could soon allow doctors and patients to monitor blood glucose levels and a host of other telltale signs of disease without invasive tests. Scientists say the bio-sensing lenses, based on technology that led to the development of smartphones with more vivid displays, also could potentially be used to track drug use or serve as an early detection system for cancer and other serious medical conditions.

Modernisation of quality assurance through digital radiography

Modernisation of quality assurance through digital radiography
In the aerospace industry safety relevant parts need to be tested with X-ray technology. VisiConsult X-ray Systems & Solutions has successfully upgraded the old and analogue X-ray system for rotor blades of Airbus Helicopters to modern digital radiography. In times of lighter materials and higher pressures in the aerospace industry, the quality assurance is of increased importance.

App screens for arrhythmia using smartphone camera

App screens for arrhythmia using smartphone camera
MIT Media Lab spinout Cardiio has developed a mobile app that uses a smartphone camera to detect facial signs of a heart arrhythmia associated with strokes. It does so by measuring and analysing minute changes of light reflected on the skin as the result of the underlying pulse. Cardiio is the startup behind the popular fitness app of the same name, launched in 2012, that calculates heart rate based off facial light reflection.

Flu test is easy as breathing and presents faster results

Flu test is easy as breathing and presents faster results
A method for diagnosing flu virus from breath samples could soon replace invasive nasal swabs and deliver better results faster. There’s a short window for detecting influenza virus, because as the infection takes hold – the concentration of the virus lessens. So if the patient isn’t tested soon after exposure, conventional methods run the risk of a giving a false negative result.

Method analyses cholesterol distribution on cells

Method analyses cholesterol distribution on cells
Researchers from UCLA and the University of Western Australia have developed a way of visualising the distribution of cholesterol in cells and tissues. Their research provides insights into the movement of cholesterol into and out of cells and could eventually identify mechanisms linking cholesterol to coronary artery disease. Using a high-resolution imaging mass spectrometry approach called NanoSIMS, the team could visualise and quantify a pool of cholesterol called “accessible cholesterol” on the surface of cells.

BIOTRONIK launches its lightest MR-conditional pacemakers

BIOTRONIK launches its lightest MR-conditional pacemakers
With the launch of the Edora series, BIOTRONIK has brought the highest functionality to its smallest pacemakers as well as cardiac resynchronisation therapy pacemakers (CRT-Ps). The new devices are equipped with features geared towards improving patient safety, therapy and comfort. Moreover, Edora pacemakers are significantly smaller and lighter than preceding models, achieving compactness and full functionality without compromising battery life.

DNA detection becomes portable with the use of cellphones

DNA detection becomes portable with the use of cellphones
Researchers at UCLA have developed an improved method to detect the presence of DNA biomarkers of disease that is compatible with use outside of a hospital or lab setting. The new technique leverages the sensors and optics of cellphones to read light produced by a new detector dye mixture that reports the presence of DNA molecules with a signal that is more than 10-times brighter.

Toshiba releases three advanced ultrasounds

Toshiba releases three advanced ultrasounds
Toshiba has released three ultrasounds in the Aplio i-series, the Aplio i700, Aplio i800, and Aplio i900. The company claims the new devices provide superior imaging, including deep and hard to penetrate regions such as the shoulder. The company’s “iBeam” technology is supposed to provide greater efficiency to the soundwaves, letting them penetrate deeper without losing as much definition as in previous systems.

FDA clears robot-supported ARTIS pheno angiography system

FDA clears robot-supported ARTIS pheno angiography system
The FDA has cleared the ARTIS pheno, a robotic C-arm angiography system from Siemens Healthineers created for use in minimally invasive interventional procedures. The ARTIS pheno possesses not only a zen40HDR flat panel detector and GIGALIX X-ray tube for outstanding image quality, but also new 2k recording technology capable of delivering 2D imaging resolution that is four times higher in all recording processes than its predecessor system, the Artis zeego.
