Smart sensors detect wound healing through tissue changes
Researchers at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland are developing smart sensors which can monitor the healing progress of a wound, eliminating the need to look underneath a bandage.
The budding promise of 3D biopsies
Researchers have discovered that existing optical fibre technology could be used to produce 3D images of tissue inside the body, allowing clinicians to examine living tissue in real-time. To find out more, we spoke to the Dr Antony Orth, who has been leading the development of the technology at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia.
