Staining method enables Nano-CT imaging of tissue samples

Staining method enables Nano-CT imaging of tissue samples
To date, examining patient tissue samples has meant cutting them into thin slices for histological analysis. This might now be set to change – thanks to a new staining method devised by an interdisciplinary team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM). This allows specialists to investigate three-dimensional tissue samples using the Nano-CT system also recently developed at TUM.

Laser fabric cures skin diseases

Laser fabric cures skin diseases
Chronic skin conditions such as acne, Actinic Keratosis, and psoriasis can now be treated in a single 150 minute appointment, thanks to a wearable laser that blasts the skin with light. French scientists at 'Texinov Medical Textiles', have developed a knitted laser fabric that blasts the skin with light, giving treatment to enflamed skin or lesions over a 2 and a half hour appointment.

Can UV light help avoid the spread of Influenza?

Can UV light help avoid the spread of Influenza?
Continuous low doses of far ultraviolet C (far-UVC) light can kill airborne flu viruses without harming human tissues, according to a new study at the Center for Radiological Research at Columbia University Irving Medical Center (CUIMC). The findings suggest that use of overhead far-UVC light in hospitals, doctors’ offices, schools, airports, airplanes, and other public spaces could provide a powerful check on seasonal influenza epidemics, as well as influenza pandemics.

The most commonly used medical isotope in diagnostic imaging

The most commonly used medical isotope in diagnostic imaging
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the NRC took steps to ensure a stable and secure supply of a critical radioactive imaging product used to detect potentially life-threatening diseases. The FDA approved the RadioGenix System, a unique system for producing Technetium-99m (Tc-99m), the most widely used radioisotope in medical imaging. The NRC is issuing guidance and will license the RadioGenix System to enable the Tc-99m it produces to be used for its medical purpose.

Fibre optic sensors dissolve in the body

Fibre optic sensors dissolve in the body
For the first time, researchers have fabricated sensing elements known as fibre Bragg gratings inside optical fibres designed to dissolve completely inside the body. The bioresorbable fibre Bragg gratings could be used for in-body monitoring of bone fracture healing and for safer exploration of sensitive organs such as the brain. A fibre Bragg grating is an optical element inscribed in an optical fibre, which is widely used as a sensing instrument.

3D imaging of fat unveils targets for obesity treatments

3D imaging of fat unveils targets for obesity treatments
Three-dimensional images of fat cells, the first of their kind, are the latest tactic in the ongoing fight against the global obesity epidemic. The above movie, produced by The Rockefeller University's Laboratory of Molecular Metabolism, is part of a report that reveals the inner workings of fat tissue in mice and identifies potential targets for new drugs to treat and prevent obesity and diabetes.
