Health care of the future

Dear Sir or Madam,

The pandemic shows: digitalisation in the health sector is part of our everyday life, for example when it comes to video consultation. But it also still offers a lot of potential. As the Managing director of Flying Health, Lina Behrens knows a lot about digital healthcare – find out how she assesses future developments in the Interview.

Digitalisation is also a great help in hospitals: read in the Topic of the Month how surgeons can better plan complicated operations with Mixed Reality.

Enjoy reading!

Surgical planning with immersive mixed reality

Topic of the Month

The job of surgeons starts long before they step into the operating room. They must use two-dimensional MRI or CT scans to plan the surgical steps on a three-dimensional patient, relying on their experience, skill, and spatial sense. Using mixed reality (MR) to view human anatomical models allows for better visualization and navigation.

Smartphone app detects silent atrial fibrillation in American Indians

Research & Technology, Information and Communication Technology

A smartphone-based electrocardiogram (ECG) screening accurately detected previously unknown atrial fibrillation in American Indians, and more than half who were diagnosed with the irregular heart rhythm were younger than the recommended screening age of 65, according to new research published today in the Journal of the American Heart Association.

3D printing: individual pieces with a precise fit and optimized cost

Electromedicine, Medical Technology, Research & Technology

The idea is as appealing as it is obvious: After a diagnosis of painful hip osteoarthritis, medical imaging creates a high-resolution 3D image of the defunct hip joint – and thus the basis for a customized implant. The data is processed further and ultimately ends up as a digital blueprint in a 3D printer, which produces the individual piece with a precise fit and at optimized cost.

A neuromagnetic view through the skull

Electromedicine, Medical Technology, Research & Technology

The processing of information inside the brain is one of the body's most complex processes. Disruption of this processing often leads to severe neurological disorders. The study of signal transmission inside the brain is therefore key to understanding a myriad of diseases.

Implant detects oxygen deep within the body

Electromedicine, Medical Technology, Research & Technology

Engineers at the University of California, Berkeley, have created a tiny wireless implant that can provide real-time measurements of tissue oxygen levels deep underneath the skin. The device, which is smaller than the average ladybug and powered by ultrasound waves, could help doctors monitor the health of transplanted organs or tissue and provide an early warning of potential transplant failure.
