In our current Topic of the Month you can find out what else is important in acute care, inpatient treatment and rehabilitation after a stroke.

Stay healthy!

Imaging: high-resolution 3D view inside breast tumors

Research & Technology, Electromedicine, Medical Technology

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. But individual tumors can vary significantly, presenting different spatial patterns within their mass. Researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and Helmholtz Zentrum München have now succeeded in visualizing spatial changes within tumors by means of optoacoustics. This method may be helpful for the future development of new drugs.

Nerve stimulation: electric impulses relieve the pain

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

The vagus nerve plays an important role in our body. It consists of various fibres, some of which connect to the internal organs, but the vagus nerve can also be found in the ear. It is of great importance for various body functions, including the perception of pain. Therefore, a lot of research has been focussing on how the vagus nerve can be stimulated gently with special electrodes.
