High-resolution images in the OR

Dear Sir or Madam,

Intraoperative imaging offers numerous possibilities in cardiovascular surgery that mean more safety for both examiner and patient. The more imaging techniques are developed, the better surgical treatments can become. In our Topic of the Month you can learn more about the possibilities of cardiovascular imaging.

Enjoy reading!

A high degree of precision is required for operations involving the cardiovascular system. This is based on medical imaging. In practice, however, these still face a number of challenges that can impair image quality. The further development of imaging techniques represents a forward-looking field of research in order to be able to improve surgical treatment in the future. Read more about this in the Topic of the Month.

Breath test to determine correct treatment for epilepsy

Laboratory equipment and diagnostic tests, Research & Technology

Epilepsy affects some 50 million people worldwide and pharmaceutical treatment of the disease is a tightrope walk, as the dose must be tailored precisely to the individual patient: "Slightly too little and it isn't effective. Slightly too much and it becomes toxic," explains Professor Pablo Sinues.

Organoid bladders reveal secrets of UTIs

Research & Technology, Imaging and diagnostics / medical equipment and devices

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are among the most common bacterial infections. They usually require treatment with antibiotics, and almost a quarter of treated cases lead to recurrent infection. The vast majority of UTIs are caused by a subspecies of the bacterium Escherichia coli, which infect cells that line the bladder wall and form what are known as "intracellular bacterial communities".

App to help caregivers manage medication for dementia patients

Laboratory equipment and diagnostic tests, Research & Technology

Most of the six million people in the U.S. who live with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias rely on informal caregivers, usually family or friends, to help manage their medications. Researchers from Regenstrief Institute, Indiana University and University of Wisconsin have received a grant to create an application to support those caregivers.
