Implantable device to detect heart attacks

AngelMed Guardian implants like a pacemaker and detects ST segment changes, which could signal the onset of a heart attack. The information is then automatically transmitted to the patient’s provider. The device recently received FDA approval and promises new potential

When You Need A Mammogram, Should You Get One In ‘3-D’?

3D mammography, which uses the same X-ray technology as regular mammography but creates additional cross-sectional images, is becoming offered more and more at facilities as an alternative screening tool. It is still unclear whether it is better than traditional mammography;

Bloodless revolution in diabetes monitoring

Researchers at the University of Bath have developed a wearable blood sugar monitoring device that does not require patients to do prick their fingers to monitor their sugar levels. Non-invasive, painless wearable monitors may encourage more diabetic patients to monitor

Diagnosing breast cancer using red light

Optical mammography is a technique using infrared light to diagnose breast malignancies in conjunction with regular X-ray mammography. Infrared can determine suspicious increases in blood flow and oxygen use in areas of the brewer identified on X-ray, possibly preventing unnecessary

Genetic doping in athletes

Recent advances in genetic engineering have lead to the potential for using modifications in genetic sequencing as a mechanism for doping in athletes. Unlike exogenous substances that athletes traditionally use to enhance performance, such as steroids and erythropoietin, this new

3-D human ‘mini-brains’ shed new light on genetic underpinnings of major mental illness

Researchers at Brigham and Women’s are using new technology to research genetic determinants of mental health in which stem cells are used to grow a replica of a human brain. ¬†Using this, they were able to find the specific molecular

Utilizing drones to deliver medical supplies

Drones are starting to become commonly used in the aftermath of natural disasters for the purpose of delivering medical supplies to difficult to reach areas. However, Federal Aviation Administration regulations still limit their use within the US. https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2018/03/10/592059175/medical-cargo-could-be-the-gateway-for-routine-drone-deliveries
