Research with UWF imaging may change how diabetic eye disease is assessed and treated

For decades, clinicians have detected and monitored diabetic eye disease with standard retinal photographs that cover about a third of the retina. In recent years, an emerging class of ultrawide field (UWF) cameras has given a substantially larger view of… Read more →


Miniature 3D camera is designed for brain surgery

Scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL; Pasadena, CA) are developing an endoscope with a miniature stereo camera designed to produce 3D images from inside the brain to assist in brain surgery. The camera is a… Read more →


Camera Arrays Pop Open to Provide High-Def 3D View for Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopic surgery relies on using rigid endoscopic cameras to visualize patient’s anatomy. This requires a separate incision and places the camera right over the working area where there’s often lots of splatter and condensation that gunks up the lens. At the… Read more →

Scientists Develop Novel Technique for Kidney Research

One in four patients treated with the widely used anti-cancer drug cisplatin develop chronic kidney disease. To better understand how the treatment leads to kidney damage, and possibly prevent it, a team of researchers at Yale School of Medicine developed… Read more →

New Device May Make Magnetocardiography a Common Imaging Modality

Magnetocardiography is a sparsely used technology that relies on detecting faint magnetic fields to evaluate the heart in a completely non-invasive fashion. This is done using superconducting quantum interference devices (SQUIDs) that require very cold temperatures and a specially shielded… Read more →

Imaging software could speed breast cancer diagnosis

New software developed by Rice Univ. bioengineers could speed up the diagnosis of breast cancer with 90% accuracy and without the need for a specialist, according to research published in Breast Cancer Research.

Researchers said the software could improve breast… Read more →

Identification of childhood speech disorders using facial motion capture

Facial motion capture is a technology used in computer animation to simulate the facial expressions of real people when creating animated characters for video games or movies. By converting facial movements into a digital database, based on specific reference points… Read more →

Wize Mirror to monitor health, prevent cardio-metabolic diseases

Seasoned primary care physicians often have an uncanny ability to notice symptoms by simply looking at their patients. Skin tone, heart rate, and body temperature are some of the signals that clinicians pick up on, and so a consortium of EU… Read more →

New approach to MRI could slash length of scans

Medical Research Council (MRC) scientists have developed a new approach to speed up MRI scans for those who cannot hold their breath.

Testing the new approach on MRI scans of the liver in patients with type 2 diabetes, the researchers were… Read more →

New medical imaging solution improves contrast, resolution and depth


A new advance in elastography from The Technology Partnership could lead to improvements in surgical procedures and enhance a doctor’s ability to navigate around the body during operations.

Elastography is a medical imaging technique that maps the elastic properties… Read more →
