3D Printed Stethoscope

A team of researchers in English clinically validated the use of a 3D printed stethoscope. The stethoscope costs less than $3 to produce and takes less than 3 hours to make. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/03/180314144954.htm

Ultrasound directed cancer drug delivery

Ultrasound technology found several uses in hospitals recently but a new company hopes to use ultrasound to direct and focus cancer drug therapies. The technology would potentially allow for cancer patients to receive their therapies without needles, injections, or radiation.

Digital pills to track medication adherence

A new pill includes technology to digitally alert providers when it has been consumed so that compliance can be monitored. The technology is supposed to be used to prevent dangerous side effects when patients skip certain medications. Several hurdles are

Detecting early breast cancer with breath and urine tests

A new study suggests that analyzing breath patterns may allow for accurate detection of early breast cancer. The method allows for detection of breast tumors smaller than what’s capable of being detected by mammograms. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/04/180425120253.htm

Improved lung visualization for COPD patients

Currently, COPD is assessed with pulmonary function tests, which produce some useful quantitative parameters of pulmonary function but do not provide a visualization of how pulmonary function varies throughout different areas of the lung. A new technology is using x-ray
