Improving epilepsy diagnosis

Improving epilepsy diagnosis
Epilog, a spin-off from imec and Ghent University, is launching a platform that improves epilepsy diagnosis through an automated service that accurately and efficiently analyses large amounts of EEG-data. The new platform enables doctors to make well-informed patient treatment decisions. Proven in clinical trials and welcomed by the physician community, interest in Epilog has grown internationally, and to-date, the solution is being tested in seven hospitals within Europe.

Imaging probe for fast and sensitive detection of cancer

Imaging probe for fast and sensitive detection of cancer
The ultimate goal of cancer diagnostics is to develop sensitive imaging techniques for reliable detection of tumor malignancy in the body. Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology have come close to achieving this goal by developing an injectable imaging probe that can specifically detect solid tumors based on the activity of hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF) regulated by the ubiquitin-proteasome system.

Portable smartphone laboratory detects cancer at once

Portable smartphone laboratory detects cancer at once
Washington State University researchers have developed a low-cost, portable laboratory on a smartphone that can analyse several samples at once to catch a cancer biomarker, producing lab quality results. The research team, led by Lei Li, assistant professor in the School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering, recently published the work in the journal Biosensors and Bioelectronics.

Acoustic holograms could improve ultrasound diagnostics

Acoustic holograms could improve ultrasound diagnostics
Sound can now be structured in three dimensions. Researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems and the University of Stuttgart have found a way of generating acoustic holograms, which could improve ultrasound diagnostics and material testing. The holograms can also be used to move and manipulate particles. Peer Fischer, a Research Group Leader at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems and Professor at the University of Stuttgart, normally works on micro- and nanorobots.

Simple saliva test to diagnose asthma

Simple saliva test to diagnose asthma
A test which can diagnose asthma from a patient's saliva has been developed by Loughborough University. Around 5.4 million people currently receive treatment for asthma in the UK, of which 1.1 million are children. To diagnose the condition doctors usually measure a person's airflow lung capacity, however lung function tests can be inaccurate and do not reflect underlying changes associated with asthma.

Method speeds up detection of infectious diseases

Method speeds up detection of infectious diseases
A team of UCLA researchers has found a way to speed and simplify the detection of proteins in blood and plasma opening up the potential for diagnosing the early presence of infectious diseases or cancer during a doctor's office visit. The test takes about 10 minutes as opposed to two to four hours for current state-of-the-art tests. The approach overcame several key challenges in detecting proteins that are biomarkers of disease.

Exome sequence data aids the diagnosis of rare diseases

Exome sequence data aids the diagnosis of rare diseases
  Based on the largest resource of its kind, members of the Exome Aggregation Consortium (ExAC) led by scientists at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard report scientific findings from data on the exome sequences (protein-coding portions of the genome) from 60,706 people from diverse ethnic backgrounds.
