A small, wearable heart monitor can detect atrial fibrillation in high-risk patients ten times more frequently than standard tests.
Researchers explain how computer scientists and clinicians are trying to reduce fatal medical errors by building “ambient intelligence” into the spaces where patients reside.
In order for a COVID-19 vaccine and antiviral drugs to be developed, scientists first need to understand why this virus spreads so easily and quickly, and why it invades our bodies with seemingly little resistance from our immune system.
Using a robot to treat brain aneurysms is feasible and could allow for improved precision when placing stents, coils and other devices.
Researchers have developed a ‘heater’ — about the size of a pill tablet — that regulates the temperature of biological samples through the different stages of diagnostic testing.
Researchers have developed a super-stretchy, transparent and self-powering sensor that records the complex sensations of human skin.
Transdermal optical imaging measures blood pressure by detecting blood flow changes in smartphone-captured facial videos.
Scientists have developed a new technique for the decontamination of organs before transplantation using ultraviolet and red light irradiation.
Researchers have built a set of magnetic ‘tweezers’ that can position a nano-scale bead inside a human cell in three dimensions with unprecedented precision.
A machine learning algorithm was able to sort children with arthritis into distinct categories based on their patterns of inflamed joints in the body in a way that was also predictive of disease outcome.
The app "Swift Skin and Wound", which accurately measures and charts the progression of skin wounds, could potentially have a significant impact on clinical management and patient outcomes.
Drones are now heralded as a solution to a problem that's bedeviled emergency medical personnel for years.
