3D-printed cardiac patches for cardiovascular diseases

Bioprinted 3D cardiac patches could reverse scar formation and promote myocardial regeneration after heart attacks.

Skin patch for early warning of strokes

Skin patch for early warning of strokes

Engineers developed a soft and stretchy ultrasound patch that can be worn on the skin to monitor blood flow through major arteries and veins deep inside a person’s body.

AI measures fat around heart to predict diabetes

AI measures fat around heart to predict diabetes

Researchers have developed a new artificial intelligence tool that is able to automatically measure the amount of fat around the heart from MRI scan images.

Ultrasound sensor measures blood pressure

Ultrasound sensor measures blood pressure

Imec uses an ultrasound sensor to measure the central pulse wave velocity, to determine arterial stiffness, and monitoring blood pressure.
