Combining hazard monitoring with risk management and mitigation

Combining hazard monitoring with risk management and mitigation
They say prevention is better than cure and this old adage certainly rang true for David Greenberg when he founded EAVE, the company behind a new concept in reducing the risks associated with occupational disease. Combining hazard monitoring with risk management and mitigation, EAVE are able to offer a complete system.

Radar breast localisation system can localise soft tissue

Radar breast localisation system can localise soft tissue
Cianna Medical has announced that it has received 510(k) clearance from the FDA to extend the indication of its SCOUT reflector for use in localisation of soft tissue. The SCOUT System has been in use for wire-free breast tumour localisation since 2016 and has been proven in over 42,000 procedures in more than 325 medical centres in the U.S.

Brain injury to be diagnosed with a single drop of blood

Brain injury to be diagnosed with a single drop of blood
Every year in Europe, three million people are admitted into hospitals for suspected mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) cases. Yet 90% of these patients will be able to return home safely, as no trauma has been detected. Today, the only reliable diagnosis is the CT Scan, which is only available in some hospitals and, in addition to being expensive, exposes patients to radiations.

Nano-sized traps show promise in diagnosing bacterial infections

Nano-sized traps show promise in diagnosing bacterial infections
A type of 'lab on a chip' developed by McGill University scientists has the potential to become a clinical tool capable of detecting very small quantities of disease-causing bacteria in just minutes. The device designed by Sara Mahshid, Assistant Professor in the Department of Bioengineering at McGill, is made of nano-sized 'islands,' about one tenth of the thickness of a single human hair, which act as bacterial traps or snares.

Magnetised wire could be used to detect cancer

Magnetised wire could be used to detect cancer
A magnetic wire used to snag scarce and hard-to-capture tumour cells could prove to be a swift and effective tactic for early cancer detection, according to a study by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine. The wire, which is threaded into a vein, attracts special magnetic nanoparticles engineered to glom onto tumour cells that may be roaming the bloodstream if you have a tumour somewhere in your body.

Patch boosts brightness in medical diagnostic tests

Patch boosts brightness in medical diagnostic tests
Fluorescence-based biosensing and bioimaging technologies are widely used in research and clinical settings to detect and image various biological species of interest. While fluorescence-based detection and imaging techniques are convenient to use, they suffer from poor sensitivity. For example, when a patient carries low levels of antigens in the blood or urine, the fluorescent signal can be feeble, making visualisation and diagnosis difficult.

Expanding diagnostic ultrasound beyond obstetrics in the US

Expanding diagnostic ultrasound beyond obstetrics in the US
Healcerion has launched the SONON 300L handheld ultrasound device to the US market, following FDA approval of this wireless device for primary care providers. It provides flexible ultrasound technology at less than 1/10 the cost of a traditional ultrasound machine, with a user interface anyone can learn in minutes.

Device detects mosquito-borne diseases

Device detects mosquito-borne diseases
A startup created by Purdue University professors is developing a sensor that can detect dangerous mosquito-borne tropical diseases faster and at a lower cost than current methods, giving health officials time to take action before the viruses are transmitted to humans. SMK Diagnostics has created biosensor technology to identify and monitor diseases such as Zika, which set off a global health crisis in 2015 and 2016, and dengue, which causes about 22,000 deaths a year worldwide, mostly among children.

‘Smart stent‘ detects narrowing of arteries

‘Smart stent‘ detects narrowing of arteries
For every three individuals who have had a stent implanted to keep clogged arteries open and prevent a heart attack, at least one will experience restenosis—the renewed narrowing of the artery due to plaque buildup or scarring—which can lead to additional complications.
