UK researchers develop new probes for deeper lung imaging
Researchers from the Proteus consortium in the UK are developing new lung probes to facilitate visualisation and detection of infections deep inside the lungs.
US researchers develop AI-powered tool for OCD therapy
Researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles, US, have developed a new test to predict whether obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) will improve with treatment using specific therapy.
US study finds ultrasound and blood test jointly boost liver cancer detection
A new study conducted by a research team at the University of Texas Southwestern (UT Southwestern) Simmons Cancer Center in the US has shown that the combination of ultrasound imaging with a specific blood test can increase the detection of early-stage liver cancer by about 40%.
FDA approves NorthStar Medical’s imaging agent-producing system
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved NorthStar Medical Radioisotopes’ RadioGenix System for the production of a common medical isotope called technetium-99 (Tc-99m) from the firm’s non-uranium based molybdenum-99 (Mo-99).
METTTLER TOLEDO V2811 Provides Fast and Secure Labelling for Small Batches
In industries such as the medical device industry where smaller batches are the norm, it does not always make sense to spend money on an automatic labeller. It is often the better choice to apply labels manually.
US researchers develop new short-term approach for MRI exam
Researchers from David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in the US, have developed a new blood vessel-scanning approach to aid claustrophobic patients.
SOPHiA GENETICS combines radiomics with genomics to fight cancer
Health technology company SOPHiA GENETICS has announced that its artificial intelligence (AI) technology now has radiomic capabilities which, combined with its existing genomics knowledge, will enhance patient care and help to fight cancer. This is the first time that radiomics has been merged with genomics. The company announced this watershed moment in the field of data-driven medicine at the Precision Medicine World Conference in Silicon Valley.
Biomechanical mapping aids progression of heart damage therapies
A high-resolution optical technique which can map the detailed biomechanical properties of heart tissue could be used to aid the discovery of therapies to heal heart damage.
