Cardiology

Imaging method shows beating, development in human heart model

Researchers have been using organoids—3D organ-like, tightly-packed cell cultures—as models to study organ development, disease and drug discovery with excellent success. However, most existing imaging methods are limited ...

Biomedical technology

Sensor monitors disease severity by rapidly measuring lactate levels

Scientists have developed a prototype sensor that could help doctors rapidly measure adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and lactate levels in blood samples from patients, aiding in the rapid assessment of the severity of some diseases.

Biomedical technology

Method converts cochlear implant electrodes into microsensors

The cochlear implant (CI) is the most successful neural prosthesis worldwide. Thanks to direct stimulation of the auditory nerve, it enables more than half a million people worldwide to hear, even though those affected were ...

Biomedical technology

Test determines antibiotic resistance in less than 90 minutes

A technique that measures the metabolic activity of bacteria with an electric probe can identify antibiotic resistance in less than 90 minutes, a dramatic improvement from the one to two days required by current techniques.

Oncology & Cancer

Researchers develop a new way to find cancer at the nanometer scale

Diagnosing and treating cancer can be a race against time. By the time the disease is diagnosed in a patient, all too often it is advanced and able to spread throughout the body, decreasing chances of survival. Early diagnosis ...

Diabetes

Monitoring glucose levels, no needles required

Noninvasive glucose monitoring devices are not currently commercially available in the United States, so people with diabetes must collect blood samples or use sensors embedded under the skin to measure their blood sugar ...
