Nano-CT device successfully tested

Nano-CT device successfully tested
Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analysed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

App-based ultrasound system receives FDA clearance

App-based ultrasound system receives FDA clearance
Healcerion, based in South Korea, was the first company to receive FDA clearance for their wireless, app-based ultrasound system back in 2015. The work done by South Korean engineers and scientists laid the foundation for the development of an ultrasound transducer that works with most smartphones or tablets. Since introducing the SONON 300C convex transducer, the company has been making progress to further advance this branch of ultrasound devices.

AI to eval­u­ate brain ma­tur­ity of pre­term in­fants

AI to eval­u­ate brain ma­tur­ity of pre­term in­fants
University of Helsinki researchers have developed artificial intelligence software, which can evaluate the maturity of a preterm infant’s brain directly from an EEG. Researchers at the University of Helsinki and the Helsinki University Hospital (HUH) have developed software based on machine learning, which can independently interpret EEG signals from a premature infant and generate an estimate of the brain’s functional maturity.
