SUBSCRIBE THIS CHANNEL BY PRESSING THIS BUTTON FOR BEING UPDATES FROM BIOMEDICAL AND HEALTHCARE SOCIETY HELLO GUYS, WELCOMING U ALL IN ANOTHER EPISODE OF WEEKLY TECH UPDATES . I AM AMIT AND U ARE WATCHING TECHOMED . SO WITHOUT ANY FURTHER DELAY LETS GET STARTED… THE VERY FIRST UPDATES IS ABOUT ” Ultrasound Imaging Needle ” which can be a big transform in heart surgery. Researchers in London have published details of a revolutionary new cardiology needle capable of imaging the heart’s soft tissues from within. The team from University College London and Queen Mary University of London used the new all-optical ultrasound imaging system for heart surgery in pigs, successfully capturing high-resolution images up to 2.5cm away from the needle tip. For the first time live imaging can now be taken directly from inside the heart during keyhole surgery which has the potential to offer vast improvements over current practice, where surgeons rely on preoperative imaging combined with external ultrasound probes. The optical ultrasound needle is perfect for procedures where there is a small tissue target that is hard to see during keyhole surgery using current methods and missing it could have disastrous consequences, Outside of cardiology, the imaging system has many potential uses in a variety of minimally invasive procedures, and it even opens-up the possibility of futuristic applications such as in-womb surgery. The team of researchers behind the technology are now planning towards translating the system for clinical use in patients. The another update is about the “Nano particles Laden drugs” which can stop the cancer stem cell. Researchers at the University of Illinois are working on preventing the metastasis of cancer by using nano particles laden with drugs to deactivate cancer stem cells. Cancers often spread via cancer stem cells that can reappear and grow new tumors long after a patient has been in remission. The therapy was tested on cultures of breast cancer cells, as well as on laboratory mice with breast cancer tumors. The findings showed that the cancer stem cells were mostly deactivated, preventing them from spreading the disease throughout the rest of the body. Additionally, the general cancer cell count went down in the cultured cells and the model mice. There’s a great deal of promise for this technology to be applicable to real-world cancer patients, so they were hoping that this will soon lead to trials outside the laboratory. The another update is about the”a Vibrator” which can detect the protein bio-makers from an disease. Scientists at Purdue University have developed a novel new way of detecting bio-markers within blood and other bodily fluids, potentially opening the possibility of being able to quickly and easily detect a wide variety of diseases and monitor their progress. The technology is rather cheap to manufacture and easy to use, potentially one day making it common for use on the sidelines of American football fields and more widely in a variety of clinical applications. Research is going in and we are waiting for that product. The another update is about the”RICOH MEG Magnetoencephalography Wins FDA Clearance”. Ricoh, a large Japanese industrial company, won FDA clearance for its RICOH MEG magnetoencephalography system. The device is able to detect electrical signals within the brain by measuring the magnetic fields produced as electric currents move within the brain. According to the company, the device was developed to provide “deeper measurement clearer signal using coaxial gradiometer sensors and greater patient comfort for better data acquisition.” The another update is about the”Robotic arm” which can moves now by the power of thought. Scientists at the University of Chicago have shown that it is possible to implant brain-computer interfaces and let amputees control robotic arms, even years after their amputations. Similar research has previously focused on paralyzed people and whether they can benefit from technology that lets them move external devices by simply willing and thinking of wanted movements. The new development extends a great deal of this research to amputees. the brain is incredibly adaptive and neuroplasticity can be harnessed to help restore lost function and train brain regions to perform tasks they were never intended to perform. So thats all about the weekly tech updates from bio-medical and healthcare society. if u have any query or suggestion u can drop it in comment section , i will answer every question over there.
