Clinically Validated 3-D Printed Stethoscope

Researchers from Ontario have developed a clinically validated template for a 3-D printed stethoscope. It uses open source software and costs roughly $3 to make. They hope that this will lead to easier and cheaper access for stethoscopes and other

Refining Cellular Protein Visualization

Researchers have developed a method of more effectively visualizing cellular proteins. Using a refined immunofluorescence technique, they can visualize the spatial distribution of 40 different proteins and their modifications on the same cell. They can also apply this technique for

Developing Technology for Faster and Safer Radiation Therapy

Researchers are developing a new technology to be able to deliver anti-cancer radiotherapy faster and more effectively. The new approach is focused on using accelerator structures that are much more powerful than the systems currently in use.  The hope is

Using a pill to screen for breast cancer

Scientists have developed pill that can be used to detect breast cancer in mice. The pill has two components, a molecule that binds to breast cancer surface proteins and a dye that “lights up” when exposed to near-infrared radiation. Full

Using sound waves to separate cancer cells from a blood sample

Researchers have found a way to use sound waves to efficiently separate circulating tumor cells from normal blood cells. A small sample of blood is obtained and then sound waves are directed at it as it flows through a channel,

Focused heart imaging protocol used to reduce cost and image acquisition time

Researchers have developed a rapid Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging protocol to more quickly and cheaply diagnose heart disease in Peru. This protocol uses dye and measures cardiac structure, function, and scarring. This leaves out other components of the protocol more

Using 3-D printed models to aid surgeons

Massachusetts surgeons and engineers have been using 3-D printed models of specific patient anatomy to help plan and prepare surgeries. Using MRI and CT images, a 3-D model of the patient’s anatomy is generated, which allows the surgeon to better
