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 high-tech hunt for new biomarkers
Technology is pushing forward the search for new biomarkers to unlock new insights into disease progression and inform clinical research. From epigenetic screening to vocal biomarkers and data analysis powered by machine learning, what are some of the most promising technological talking points in the industry today?
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.
National Heart Month: blood pressure monitors are changing diabetes care
Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, increases a patient’s chances of developing a potentially life-threatening condition such as a heart attack. As diabetes and high blood pressure are closely linked, equipment manufacturer Omron believes blood pressure monitoring is key for diabetic patients. On National Heart Month, Omron Healthcare UK general manager Charlie Fox discusses the company’s latest blood pressuring monitoring technology.
Intuitive Surgical gets FDA clearance for robot-assisted Ion system
Intuitive Surgical has received clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the use of its Ion endoluminal system for minimally invasive biopsy in the peripheral lung.
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.
Medtronic-funded study provides OIRD risk prediction tool
Medtronic has reported preliminary results from the Microstream Capnography Study that provided an easy-to-use risk prediction tool for opioid-induced respiratory depression (OIRD).
Philips unveils new Zenition mobile C-arm imaging platform
Royal Philips has unveiled its new Zenition mobile C-arm imaging platform, which can provide live image guidance during surgical procedures.
PET/CT imaging agent could improve acute venous thromboembolism diagnosis
Researchers based at the University of Ulsan College of Medicine in the Republic of Korea have found that the positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) tracer 18F-GP1 results in high image quality and a high detection rate for acute venous thromboembolism (VTE).
