Robotic-Assisted Surgery – Current Challenges and Future Directions: Interview with Dr. Mona Orady

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 16:41:00 +0000

During the last decade and a half, robotic-assisted surgery has led to smaller scars, less pain, and faster recoveries for patients. Concurrently, surgeons using this technology have benefited from being able to perform surgeries in a more comfortable position, while also experiencing greater visualization and enhanced precision. With all of these benefits, robotic-assisted surgeries are […]

Portable 3D Scanner to Assess Elephantiasis Patients

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 16:12:49 +0000

Scientists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have developed a portable 3D scanner that can help health workers to rapidly assess patients with elephantiasis, a condition that causes swollen limbs. The scanner allows medical professionals to measure the volume and dimensions of swollen limbs in the comfort of a patient’s home. Approximately […]

Nitric Oxide Absorbing Hydrogel Releases Drugs to Fight Rheumatoid Arthritis, Other Diseases

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 19:21:00 +0000

At the Institute for Basic Science in Daejeon, South Korea, scientists have developed a hydrogel that responds to the presence of nitric oxide (NO) and releases drugs when so activated. This kind of drug delivery system may be particularly effective for treating rheumatoid arthritis, as immune cells within inflamed joints release toxic NO in large quantities. […]

Trapping Cancer Helps to Study Dormant Cells and How to Kill Them

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 18:04:22 +0000

Cancers often come back following successful treatment, a process at least partially due to the fact that dormant cells, which are particularly resistant to common therapies like chemo, remain in the body. They’re elusive and therefore difficult to study, so progress on targeting such cells has been limited. Now scientists at University of Minnesota-Twin Cities […]

Ultrasound System Maps Tongue Movement to Help with Speech Therapy

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 16:45:36 +0000

A team of French researchers has developed a specialized ultrasound technique to allow people to visualize the shape of the tongue during speech. This “visual biofeedback” system could help with speech therapy. At present, speech therapists will listen to someone’s pronunciation, and use diagrams to help explain how to position the tongue in the mouth […]
