Detecting language problems: a tech-assisted vision for earlier diagnosis
A team at San Diego State University is using advanced computerised comprehension tasks to detect language problems in children. Using the program, the team has been able to spot problems a full two years earlier, a development which could lead to significant improvements for conditions that often hamper a child’s progress. San Diego State University psychology professor Margaret Friend explains the potentially life-changing technique.
The critical moment: can machine learning save lives in sepsis care?
Researchers from MIT and Massachusetts General Hospital have developed a predictive model that could guide clinicians in deciding when to give potentially life-saving drugs to patients being treated for sepsis. First author of the study Varesh Prasad explains how the technology works.
Empatica and DRIVe to work on smartwatch to predict lung infections
Empatica, a Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Media Lab spin-off, has collaborated with the US BARDA Division of Research, Innovation and Ventures (DRIVe) to develop a new smartwatch to predict lung infections.
BGU develops new AI platform to track neurodegenerative disorders
BGN Technologies, the technology transfer company of Israel-based Ben-Gurion University (BGU), has unveiled a new artificial intelligence (AI) platform to monitor and predict the progression of neurodegenerative diseases.
Researchers develop electrode for less invasive neural stimulation
A research team at the University of Pittsburgh in the US has developed a new electrode to facilitate less invasive neural stimulation for the treatment of neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease.
Check-Cap to study capsule-based screening for colorectal cancer
Israeli medical diagnostics maker Check-Cap is set to initiate a pilot study in the US to assess its C-Scan System for the prevention of colorectal cancer by detecting precancerous polyps.
Researchers develop non-invasive imaging tech to assess cardiovascular risk
Researchers in Switzerland have developed a non-invasive technique for imaging the carotid artery, which could provide an earlier, more accurate assessment of cardiovascular disease risk than other imaging methods.
Nuvaira secures funds to develop lung denervation system
US-based medical device company Nuvaira has raised fresh funds in an equity financing round led by US Venture Partners to further develop its lung denervation system for treating chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma.
Simulator shows patients how cataract surgery can improve their vision
Scientists from the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) have developed a wearable visual simulator, called SimVis, which enables patients to experience how their vision will improve after having cataract surgery.
