Eye and the scalpel: Ocular tumors easier to diagnose noninvasively

Australia is the sunniest continent on Earth—which is why it also has the highest rates of skin cancer. But plentiful sunlight is also likely responsible for the lesser known ocular surface cancer, which occurs when abnormal ...

AI to bring sharper focus to eye testing

QUT researchers have applied artificial intelligence (AI) deep learning techniques to develop a more accurate and detailed method for analyzing images of the back of the eye to help clinicians better detect and track eye ...

Using AI to make cancer evolution more predictable

A team of researchers affiliated with several institutions in the U.K. and one in the U.S. has developed a way to use artificial intelligence to predict how cancer might change and spread in patients. The results are published ...

Artificial Intelligence helps early detection of dementia

Through pioneering algorithmic analysis, the Eurostars project BRAINIQ has developed software that uses artificial intelligence to detect the signs and progression of dementia in a patient's MRI scans.

Cardiology

Muscles out of the spray can

An artificial heart would be an absolute lifesaver for people with cardiac failure. However, to recreate the complex organ in the laboratory, one would first need to work out how to grow multi-layered, living tissues. Researchers ...

Curve-eye-ture: How to grow artificial corneas

Scientists at Newcastle University, UK, and the University of California have developed a new method to grow curved human corneas improving the quality and transparency - solely by controlling the behaviour of cells in a ...
