Sensus Healthcare’s Technology Uses Low-Energy X-rays Directly on Cancer Cells: Interview with CEO Joe Sardano

Sensus Healthcare is a medical device company that focuses on providing non-invasive and cost-effective treatment of non-melanoma skin cancers and keloids utilizing superficial radiation technology (SRT). Their proprietary, FDA-cleared SRT technology is used to effectively and safely treat oncological and non-oncological skin conditions. The radiat (Read more...)

EasyScan GO: AI Powered Malaria Parasite Counter

EasyScan GO, an AI powered microscope developed by Chinese manufacturer Motic, has the capability to automatically and accurately quantify malaria parasites in a blood sample. Utilizing machine learning algorithms, the microscope is so efficient that it can identify the amount of parasites present in under 20 minutes. Premiered at the International (Read more...)

EYEMATE Implantable Continuous Intraocular Pressure Monitor Validated in Initial Patients

Implandata, a Hannover, Germany firm, just announced that the first patients has been implanted with its EYEMATE continuous intraocular pressure (IOP) monitor and the technology passed initial validation. Glaucoma, as well as a few other less common eye conditions, require regular IOP measurements in order to properly adjust how much medications to (Read more...)

Virtual Reality System for Navigating Huge Brain Datasets

Researchers at the Wyss Center for Bio and Neuroengineering and the University of Geneva have developed a virtual reality system for navigating through and manipulating huge volumes of brain-related data. Information obtained from brain studies can balloon into gigantic quantities that is difficult to visualize and analyze. The person piloting the (Read more...)

High-Strength Artificial Cartilage Made from Kevlar

Researchers at the University of Michigan and Jiangnan University in China have developed a type of artificial cartilage using Kevlar, a synthetic fiber better-known for its use in bullet-proof vests, and polyvinyl alcohol (PVA), a material used in hydrogel cartilage replacements. The new hybrid material combines the strength and water content of n (Read more...)

High Speed Video Precisely Captures Blood Cell Velocity

Researchers at ITMO University in Saint Petersburg, Russia, have developed a non-invasive high-speed video capillaroscopy system that can precisely measure the velocity of blood cells flowing through capillaries in the skin around a fingernail. The technique could be useful in assessing cardiovascular conditions. Capillaroscopy systems offer a simp (Read more...)

Spraying Technique Creates Muscle Fibers

Researchers at the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (EMPA) have developed an electrospraying technique that can incorporate living cells into a 3D synthetic polymer scaffold. The cells can then grow to form elongated fibers, mimicking natural muscular tissue, and the technique brings the possibility of lab-developed o (Read more...)
