New technology can predict ON/OFF motor fluctuations in Parkinson’s patients
Researchers from Florida Atlantic University College of Engineering and Computer Science have developed wearable motion sensors to detect and monitor medication ON and OFF states in Parkinson’s patients.
Israeli AI medical imaging firm Aidoc closes series B funding
Aidoc has raised $27m in a series B funding round led by Square Peg Capital.
New MRI technology could measure brain function in milliseconds
Scientists have developed a new technique to measure brain function in milliseconds using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Known as magnetic resonance elastography (MRE), the new technology could be used to help diagnose and understand numerous neurological diseases including Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis and epilepsy
Non-invasive vagus nerve stimulation may ease symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis
A series of pilot clinical studies has indicated that non-invasive external stimulation of the vagus nerve alleviates disease symptoms in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
Pocket ultrasound: a new era of medical imaging
US-based tech company Butterfly has produced a portable, pocket-sized ultrasound scanner that plugs into an iPhone and can be controlled using an app. Butterfly Network president Gioel Molinari explains more about the scanner and its potential impact on healthcare.
AI in healthcare: Should ‘medical machines’ be allowed to teach themselves?
Before a medical device is sold, it has to go through a whole series of approvals and regulations. Does it resemble a pre-existing device? Is this the first of its kind? What kind of risk does its misuse/misapplication put its patient at?
Dotmatics introduces upgraded informatics suite for large data assays
Dotmatics has launched its latest informatics platform that is designed to handle large data assays.
eTriage system aims to transform urgent care centres
A six-month trial at Queen Mary’s Hospital in Sidcup, UK has demonstrated the successful implementation of eTriage, an electronic triage system designed to reduce hospital waiting times by accelerating initial personal assessment.
Five ways technology will shape the future of surgery
In the context of the transformative impact technology has had on the 21st century so far, the UK Royal College of Surgeons (RCS) has commissioned a ‘Future of Surgery’ report to look into the effect of technological advances like robot-assisted surgery, genomic testing, 3D bio-printing, AI, and, finally, AR and VR.
