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.

AI and radar technologies to measure blood glucose

AI and radar technologies to measure blood glucose
Diabetes management is moving away from needles, finger sticks, and insulin pumps that intrude on a person’s life. Now, researchers from the University of Waterloo have developed a novel combination of radar and AI technologies to help people manage diabetes more effectively and detect changes in glucose levels without having to traumatically poke the skin or draw blood.

Insulin pump with Basal-IQ technology receives FDA approval

Insulin pump with Basal-IQ technology receives FDA approval
Tandem Diabetes Care has announced FDA approval of the t:slim X2 Insulin Pump with Basal-IQ technology, a predictive low glucose suspend (PLGS) feature designed to help reduce the frequency and duration of low glucose events (hypoglycemia). This is the first automated insulin delivery system approved for use by children as young as 6 years old, and the first insulin pump designated as compatible with integrated continuous glucose monitoring (iCGM) devices.

Acuson Sequoia to address industry challenges in ultrasound imaging

Acuson Sequoia to address industry challenges in ultrasound imaging
Siemens Healthineers has announced the launch of its ultrasound system, the Acuson Sequoia. The Acuson Sequoia, a general imaging ultrasound system, was developed in response to one of the most prevalent challenges in ultrasound imaging today: the imaging of different sized patients with consistency and clarity. With its Deep Abdominal Transducer (DAX), a new high-powered architecture, and updates to elastography and contrast-enhanced ultrasound, the Acuson Sequoia produces penetration up to 40cm.

Soft contact lenses to monitor glucose and deliver medications

Soft contact lenses to monitor glucose and deliver medications
Purdue University researchers have developed soft contact lenses that not only correct vision but also can monitor glucose and medical conditions and be used for ocular pain relief or drug delivery. Sensors or other technology previously couldn’t be used for soft contact lenses because the technology required a rigid, planar surface incompatible with the soft, curved shape of a contact lens.

Laser-sonic scanner aims to replace mammograms

Laser-sonic scanner aims to replace mammograms
For women over 40, mammography is a necessary yet annoying procedure to endure every year or two. The technique, while valuable for reducing breast cancer deaths, is less than ideal because it exposes patients to X-ray radiation and requires their breasts to be painfully squished between plates. The plates flatten the breast so the X-rays can more easily pass through it and produce a clear image.

Self-testing device for Warfarin monitoring with built in Bluetooth tech

Self-testing device for Warfarin monitoring with built in Bluetooth tech
Roche has announced plans to launch the CoaguChek Vantus system, the first self-testing device for coagulation monitoring with built in Bluetooth technology. Patient self-testing with the Bluetooth-enabled CoaguChek Vantus system allows for a new level of patient monitoring. Patients can use their tablet or smartphone with a compatible app to send their results automatically via wireless connectivity which enables providers to receive patient INR results rapidly and accurately, while also reducing visits to the lab.

World’s first OCT angiography metrics receive FDA clearance

World’s first OCT angiography metrics receive FDA clearance
Optovue has announced FDA 510(k) clearance of AngioAnalytics, the world’s first optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) blood vessel measurement technology to help clinicians manage diseases that cause progressive blindness. The company also received clearance for its three-dimensional projection artifact removal (3D PAR) software, which greatly improves OCTA image quality and enables accurate measurement and interpretation of OCTA images.
