Training for surgery with simulations

Dear Sir or Madam,

Surgeons face a great challenge during brain surgery. They only see the surface of the brain, but not what lies inside. This is especially problematic with complex surgeries. Now, it is possible to train for an operation in advance with the help of simulation methods. Thus, the surgeon can virtually practice the surgery and anticipate potential complications. Learn in our News how this simulation works.

Have a wonderful day!

Relapse prediction tool reduces cost of rheumatoid arthritis treatment

A study has shown that the combined use of two measurements to accurately predict the risk of relapse in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) allows successful dose reduction (tapering) of their disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs). This in turn increases the cost-effectiveness of each DMARD treatment.

New flu test: one drop of blood could save your life

Australian researchers have developed a world first test to identify which influenza patients will need urgent, life-saving, medical treatment. The High-risk Influenza Screen Test (HIST) measures 'an early warning signal' released by the patient's body into their blood to 'kick start' their immune system's fight against the infection.

After a stroke or as a result of aging, there are many situations when people are impaired in their walking ability and rely on a personal assistant or auxiliary aids and services. The XoSoft Project offers a solution: a soft exoskeleton that can be worn like a pair of leggings and stiffens or softens, depending on the situation.

Cognitive-related neural pattern to activate machines

Brain-machine interfaces represent a solution for people with physical difficulties to communicate with their physical and social environment. In this work, researchers have identified a functional brain pattern in the prefrontal cortex, associated with cognitive processes, and have used it to activate a screen on a touch device (an iPad touchscreen).

Cancer treatment during childhood linked to cognitive problems later in life

Young adults who had chemotherapy as a child have decreased cognitive flexibility and a weaker short-term memory. Their ability to concentrate and long-term memory are largely unaffected. Researchers from KU Leuven (University of Leuven) and University Hospitals Leuven present these findings in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.
