Hospital construction for the future

Dear Sir or Madam,

Traditionally, hospitals are functional buildings: People come here to receive treatment. At the same time, hospitals are the place of work for many, sometimes thousands, of employees. The needs of the people inside the hospital have barely been considered when planning the buildings in the past. By now, they have been taken into focus, as modern hospital planning involves the people who use the building. Learn more in our Topic of the Month.

Stay healthy!

Deep learning model helps automated screening of common eye disorders

IT systems and IT solutions

A new deep learning (DL) model that can identify disease-related features from images of eyes has been unveiled by a group of Tohoku University researchers. This 'lightweight' DL model can be trained with a small number of images, even ones with a high-degree of noise, and is resource-efficient, meaning it is deployable on mobile devices.

Breast cancer: quick and gentle diagnosis through liquid biopsy

Laboratory equipment and diagnostic tests

If breast cancer is suspected, doctors carry out a biopsy. However, this is invasive, painful and costly. It also takes several days to get the results. In the future, diagnosis could be made via a liquid biopsy of a patient’s blood — a gentle, cost-effective method that would deliver the results within just a few hours.

In addition to medical care, the recovery of patients in the hospital is a key factor. In order for this to take place in the best possible way, the focus in the planning phase should also be on optimal workplace design for medical staff. How can the balancing act between design and functionality be achieved and what will the hospital of tomorrow look like?
