3D Joint Space Mapping Helps Assess Arthritis Patients

At the University of Cambridge, scientists have developed a method of monitoring small changes in joints of patients living with osteoarthritis. The capability should give clinical researchers and physicians treating patients a new tool to better understand and deal with the disease. The technique relies on CT scans of patient joints, and it measur (Read more...)

Photoacoustic Computed Tomography May Replace Mammographies for Breast Cancer Screening

Though mammography helps to provide early detection of breast cancer, it is a modality that suffers from limitations, particularly in dense breasts. A new technology, developed at Caltech, may have the potential to eclipse mammographies for spotting cancerous lesions. The photoacoustic system sends near-infrared laser light into breast tissue and d (Read more...)

Simulation Software Helps to Repair Diseased Heart Valves

At this week’s Computer Assisted Radiology and Surgery conference (CARS 2018) in Berlin, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Medical Image Computing in Germany will be showing off their unique software that helps to fix cardiac valves. Designed for minimally invasive procedures, which involve placing special rings that correct n (Read more...)

Medgadget was recently invited to attend the imec Technology Forum (ITF) conference in Antwerp, Belgium. One of the highlights of the conference was the demo floor where imec, which is a non-profit R&D innovation organization, had the opportunity to show off some cool technologies from their research teams, spinoff companies, and partner organi (Read more...)

Now Available: Neural Analytics’ Lucid Robotic Ultrasound System for Brain Blood Flow Assessment

Neural Analytics, the Los Angeles based company that won FDA clearance a couple of years ago for its Lucid M1 Transcranial Doppler Ultrasound System, now won another clearance, this time for its NeuralBot robotic ultrasound positioner. The two devices work together and when united will be called the Lucid Robotic System. The NeuralBot automatically (Read more...)
