The ECG that knows the history of your heart

The ECG that knows the history of your heart
  Cardiovascular diseases are still one of the most common causes of death worldwide, that is why today it is more important than ever to know about one’s heart. The ideal method for detecting heart events is to perform ECG readings at regular intervals.

Photonic-based medical device for the screening of arterial stiffness

Photonic-based medical device for the screening of arterial stiffness
The research and innovation hub, Imec, and Ghent University, alongside Medtronic and other CARDIS project partners, have developed a prototype medical device based on silicon photonics for the screening of arterial stiffness and for the diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases such as arterial stenosis and heart failure.

New AI app successfully decreases symptoms of COPD

New AI app successfully decreases symptoms of COPD
A peer-reviewed clinical study, published in the International Journal of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), has shown to successfully reduce symptoms of the disease using a new Artificial Intelligence (AI) app, developed by digital therapeutics company Kaia Health.

The transformation of medical imaging and diagnosis

The transformation of medical imaging and diagnosis
Digital technology has had a huge impact on modern life, revolutionising how we perform simple tasks like taking a photo or watching TV, but perhaps the most significant impact has been its transformation of medical care.

Mobile app generates data for full cardiac diagnosis

Mobile app generates data for full cardiac diagnosis
All ECGs are not created equal. Apple’s recently unveiled 1-lead ECG on its Series 4 Apple Watch is a great advance in screening one’s heart activity beyond a mere pulse reader. It offers the capability to detect potential arrhythmias. However, medical professionals require more to make a diagnosis. CardioSecur, a mobile, app-based, 15-lead ECG system for private use fills this gap. Its direct in-app feedback - if medical attention is needed - offers additional clarity and peace of mind anytime, anywhere.

3D virtual simulation gets to the heart of irregular heartbeats

3D virtual simulation gets to the heart of irregular heartbeats
In a proof of concept study, scientists at Johns Hopkins report they have successfully performed 3D personalised virtual simulations of the heart to accurately identify where cardiac specialists should electrically destroy cardiac tissue to stop potentially fatal irregular and rapid heartbeats in patients with scarring in the heart.

Innovation improves the diagnosis of dizziness

Innovation improves the diagnosis of dizziness
Half of over-65s suffer from dizziness and problems with balance. But some tests to identify the causes of such problems are painful and can risk hearing damage. Now, researchers from Chalmers have developed a new testing device using bone conduction technology, that offers significant advantages over the current tests.​ ​Hearing and balance have something in common. For patients with dizziness, this relationship is used to diagnose issues with balance.

Doctors pair with AI to improve diagnosis

Doctors pair with AI to improve diagnosis
Stanford University School of Medicine and Unanimous AI have presented a study showing that a small group of doctors, connected by intelligence algorithms that enable them to work together as a 'hive mind,' could achieve higher diagnostic accuracy than the individual doctors or machine learning algorithms alone. The technology used is called Swarm AI and it empowers networked human groups to combine their individual insights in real-time, using AI algorithms to converge on optimal solutions.

Blood-borne cancer detection receives gold-plated boost

Blood-borne cancer detection receives gold-plated boost
UNSW researchers have discovered a new way to detect ultralow levels of microRNA in a blood sample which could make diagnosis of cancer and other illnesses quicker and more efficient. The research team used nanoparticles to latch on to the targeted microRNAs (miRNAs) which enabled them to be easily extracted. One of the main benefits was that it was effective even when the miRNA was in minuscule amounts in the blood sample. Previously, a much larger sample was needed to extract similar amounts.

Alzheimer’s may be predicted during eye exam in the future

Alzheimer’s may be predicted during eye exam in the future
It may be possible in the future to screen patients for Alzheimer’s disease using an eye exam. Using technology similar to what is found in many eye doctors’ offices, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have detected evidence suggesting Alzheimer’s in older patients who had no symptoms of the disease. Their study, involving 30 patients, is published in the journal JAMA Ophthalmology.
