Neural network can determine lung cancer severity

Computed tomography (CT) is a major diagnostic tool for assessment of lung cancer in patients. Now NIBIB-funded researchers at Stanford University have created an artificial neural network that analyzes lung CT scans to provide ...

Diabetes

Smart contact lenses that diagnose and treat diabetes

Diabetes is called an incurable disease because once it develops, it does not disappear regardless of treatment. Having diabetes means a life-long obligation of insulin shots and monitoring of blood glucose levels. But what ...

New sensors could offer early detection of lung tumors

People who are at high risk of developing lung cancer, such as heavy smokers, are routinely screened with computed tomography (CT), which can detect tumors in the lungs. However, this test has an extremely high rate of false ...
