Controlling the catheter with AI

Dear Sir or Madam,

In the case of cardiovascular diseases, rapid treatment is essential. In order to accelerate the process, an AI-based control system can be used, which directs the catheter to the affected vessel. A software model that simulates the navigation of a catheter in the vascular tree will be used to improve treatment. Discover more in our current interview.

Have a healthy week,

Melanie Prüser

Cardiovascular diseases: using AI to navigate the catheter

Interview

Treatment of a heart attack or stroke caused by vascular occlusion must be prompt to prevent further damage to vital tissue. Unfortunately, the actual treatment is often preceded by a lengthy catheter-based procedure where the cardiologist manually guides the catheter to the affected vessel. AI might perform this task in the future.

Genetics: New low-cost method to reduce DNA errors

Laboratory Equipment, Diagnostica, Research & Technology

DNA only persists through replication - naturally or synthetically. While humans need the genetic material to be reproduced in order to replace old or damaged cells, the ability to replicate DNA in a laboratory setting can provide researchers insights into the mechanisms of disease or the platform to develop treatments.

App detects side effect of breast cancer treatment

Research & Technology, Information and Communication Technology

Some 20 percent of breast cancer survivors will suffer from lymphedema, a potentially severe side effect of treatment that makes arms swell with lymph. The disease is often overlooked, but commercially available app-based technology now makes early detection easier, allowing for proactive treatment.
