Triple imaging for tumor excision

Dear Sir or Madam,

very often tumor excision turns out not to be an one-time procedure. The tumor either can not be clearly identified or cut out completely. To avoid further surgeries triple imaging can now be used during surgery and help to exactly pinpoint the tumor. Learn in our Interview at about the details.

Have a nice week,

Melanie Prüser

Antibiotic resistance is on the rise in all parts of the world, complicating medical treatment of serious bacterial infections in patients. The World Health Organization estimates that approximately 33,000 people die each year from antibiotic-resistant bacteria in Europe alone. Bacteria that are resistant to multiple or even all known antibiotics pose an ever-increasing threat.

Tumor excision: triple imaging for unique diagnostics

After their tumor has been removed, some patients have to return to the hospital to undergo surgery again. That's because the tumor was not precisely identified and was subsequently not completely removed. That's both an ethical and financial dilemma. A new surgery-adjacent procedure is designed to rapidly and accurately detect tumors.

Wearables: motion sensors could save unborn babies

Research & Technology, Information and Communication Technology, Electromedicine, Medical Technology

The thump, thump of a baby's heartbeat is a milestone in any pregnancy. Now, researchers at Stevens Institute of Technology have developed a technique that could allow expectant parents to hear their baby's heartbeat continuously at home with a non-invasive and safe device that is potentially more accurate than any fetal heartrate monitor currently available in the market.
