A training device for cervical cancer screening

A training device for cervical cancer screening
A team of Rice University students hopes a device they developed to train doctors and nurses in developing countries and low-resource areas in the U.S. to prevent and treat cervical cancer will improve the outlook for women with this disease. Cervical cancer kills close to 300,000 women per year worldwide, with approximately 85 percent of these deaths occurring in developing countries.

Tiny probe can see and take body temperature

Tiny probe can see and take body temperature
  University of Adelaide researchers have invented a world-first tiny fibre-optic probe that can simultaneously measure temperature and see deep inside the body. The probe may help researchers find better treatments to prevent drug-induced overheating of the brain, and potentially refine thermal treatment for cancers.

Teaching computers how to analyse brain cells

Teaching computers how to analyse brain cells
In the early days of neuroscience research, scientists painstakingly stained brain cells and drew by hand what they saw in a microscope. Fast forward to 2018 and machines may be able to learn how to do that work. According to a study in Cell, it may be possible to teach machines how to pick out features in neurons and other cells that have not been stained or undergone other damaging treatments. The study was partially funded by the NINDS, part of the National Institutes of Health.

Orthopaedic extremity CT systems receive CE Mark certification

Orthopaedic extremity CT systems receive CE Mark certification
CurveBeam has announced it has received CE Mark certification for its LineUP and InReach orthopaedic extremity CT systems. The compact systems provide radiology and orthopaedic specialists with three-dimensional bone detail of the orthopedic extremities. The systems can be plugged into a standard wall outlet and have minimal shielding requirements, hence they can be placed in locations convenient to the patient. Radiation dose to the patient is also significantly less than a conventional CT scan.

Bloodless revolution in diabetes monitoring

Bloodless revolution in diabetes monitoring
Scientists have created a non-invasive, adhesive patch, which promises the measurement of glucose levels through the skin without a finger-prick blood test, potentially removing the need for millions of diabetics to carry out painful and unpopular tests. The patch does not pierce the skin, instead it draws glucose out from fluid between cells across hair follicles, which are individually accessed via an array of miniature sensors using a small electric current. The glucose collects in tiny reservoirs and is measured.

An 'electrocardiogram' for the GI tract

An 'electrocardiogram' for the GI tract
A team of engineers and physicians has developed a wearable, non-invasive system to monitor electrical activity in the stomach over 24 hours—essentially an electrocardiogram but for the gastro-intestinal (GI) tract. Applications include monitoring GI activity for patients outside of a clinical setting, which cuts down costs. Monitoring for longer periods of time also increases the likelihood of capturing abnormal events. Researchers detail their findings in Nature’s open access journal Scientific Reports.

SOMATOM Edge Plus CT system receives FDA clearance

SOMATOM Edge Plus CT system receives FDA clearance
The FDA has cleared the SOMATOM Edge Plus CT system from Siemens Healthineers, which features the FAST (Fully Assisting Scanner Technologies) Integrated Workflow with the FAST 3D Camera – the first patient positioning system powered by artificial intelligence. Additionally, the new scanner allows for automated scan preparation, improved diagnostic confidence, and customised patient dose, making it ideal for high-volume practices and emergency imaging environments.
