23/05/2022Life-like organ replicas - so-called 3D organoids - are a good way to research disease processes. A team from the University of Würzburg has now presented a kind of blueprint for such a model of the cervix.
18/05/2022Lehigh University researchers, part of multi-institution team, use the fluorescence of carbon nanotubes and machine learning to create a ‘spectral fingerprint’ of a hard-to-diagnose cancer.
06/05/2022Radiologists and artificial intelligence systems yield significant differences in breast-cancer screenings, a team of researchers has found. Its work, which appears in the journal Nature Scientific Reports, reveals the potential value of using both human and AI methods in making medical diagnoses.
25/04/2022Scientists have developed a new nanotechnology approach for locating and removing the painful and dangerous lesions associated with endometriosis, a common gynecological condition in women of childbearing age.
19/04/2022By now, breast cancer is the most frequent tumor disease worldwide. This is why in Germany women aged 50 and over are offered systematic early detection examinations – so-called mammography screening. The Clinic for Radiology at the University of Münster conducts research in the field of innovative imaging technologies and their impact on the efficiency of detecting breast cancer.
08/04/2022Researchers from the RIKEN Center for Advanced Intelligence Project (AIP) and colleagues have tested AI-enhanced diagnosis of fetal congenital heart disease in a clinical setting.
24/03/2022The appearance of ovarian lesions on ultrasound is an effective predictor of cancer risk that can help women avoid unnecessary surgery, according to a new study published in the journal Radiology.
03/03/2022Infections with several pathogens simultaneously increase the risk of cervical cancer—these results from a study conducted on artificial 3D tissue models at the University of Wuerzburg.
28/02/2022Scientists at Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin have collected data from 1,647 preeclampsia patients and used machine learning methods to create a model that can better predict the probability of serious complications.
10/02/2021There are key differences between men and women, yet medicine has been treating both sexes the same for decades. As a result, women may not always receive the most optimal care. While there is now a shift in mindset, previous findings and outdated thinking patterns are far too often still finding their way into digital health services and technologies.
08/04/2020The University Hospital Bonn has recently introduced an ultrasound device that's small enough to fit in your coat pocket. It's ready to use once you have connected it to a tablet or smartphone. The portable system makes bedside physical exams possible. The device primarily benefits students as it allows them to combine basic knowledge and clinical application.
