Medical Technology in an Age of Robots

Transforming Biology in the Second Machine Age

Biomedical technology is transforming the way we heal and augment the human body. This is an exciting age of technological advances in the world of neuroscience and medical technology in general. This department tracks what is happening on the medical front.

Norwegian ultrasound researchers among the very best

This is confirmed by the international journal Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology. Researchers at SINTEF, NTNU and St. Olavs Hospital at the National Competence Service for ultrasound and image processing have long been working on the use of 3D ultrasound in various clinical procedures.

Researchers Developing Home Test Kit for Lupus Nephritis Flares

With a four-year $1.4 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), two University of Houston engineering professors are developing a home test kit for kidney nephritis, or inflammation, in patients who have Systemic Lupus Erythematosus. The Test Kit Uses a Smartphone to Test for Kidney Inflammation.

Rousing Masses to Fight Cancer with Open Source Machine Learning

Here’s an open invitation to steal. It goes out to cancer fighters and tempts them with a new program that predicts cancer drug effectiveness via machine learning and raw genetic data. The researchers who built the program at the Georgia Institute of Technology would like cancer fighters to take it for free, or even just swipe parts of their programming code, so they’ve made it open source.

Artificial Pancreas performs well in clinical trial

During more than 60,000 hours of combined use of a novel artificial pancreas system, participants in a 12-week, multi-site clinical trial showed significant improvements in two key measures of well-being in people living with type 1 diabetes.

Researchers watch in real time as fat-encased drug nanoparticles invade skin cells

Some anti-cancer drugs are encapsulated to allow gradual release, spreading their effect over a longer time. For example, one formulation of the chemotherapy doxorubicin ( the FDA-approved drug Doxil®) encloses molecules of the drug in fatty nano-spheres called liposomes, which allows the drug to circulate longer in the blood. However, the use of liposome “capsules” often comes with side-effects.

Using Artificial Intelligence to Improve Early Breast Cancer Detection

Model developed at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory could reduce false positives and unnecessary surgeries. Every year 40,000 women die from breast cancer in the U.S. alone. When cancers are found early, they can often be cured. Mammograms are the best test available, but they’re still imperfect and often result in false positive results that can lead to unnecessary biopsies and surgeries.
