Maintaining ultrasound and MRI equipment is vitally important

The segment of medical technology that involves maintaining and repairing equipment such as MRI, ultrasound and x-ray is immensely important. If ultrasound or MRI equipment does not function properly, which can lead to false results or therapies, the consequences for patients are unimaginable. And precisely because of its importance, the field of medical technology deserves a great deal of attention. innovations-report covers the key developments in medical equipment technology, including MRI, x-ray and ultrasound systems.

Imaging processes such as ultrasound and MRI

Ultrasound and MRI are two of the most frequently used systems in the field of medical technology. Depending on the type of tissue that needs to be examined, imaging processes such as ultrasound and MRI are carried out either with or without contrast agents. Ultrasound and MRI examinations are performed without ionizing radiation, whereas processes such as computer tomography require ionizing radiation. Basic knowledge of imaging processes such as MRI and ultrasound is essential for anyone involved in the field of medical technology. For these specialists and others who are interested in this area, innovations-report covers the latest research results originating from the field of medical imaging processes such as MRI and ultrasound.

Reinforcement learning expedites 'tuning' of robotic prosthetics

Researchers from North Carolina State University, the University of North Carolina and Arizona State University have developed an intelligent system for "tuning" powered prosthetic knees, allowing patients to walk comfortably with the prosthetic device in minutes, rather than the hours necessary if the device is tuned by a trained clinical practitioner. The system is the first to rely solely on reinforcement learning to tune the robotic prosthesis.

When a patient receives a robotic prosthetic knee, the device needs to be tuned to accommodate that specific patient. The new tuning system tweaks 12 different...

New insight into the brain’s hidden depths: Jena scientists develop minimally-invasive endoscope

This could be a major step towards a better understanding of the functions of deeply hidden brain compartments, such as the formation of memories, as well as related dysfunctions, including Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers from the Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz-IPHT) in Jena and the University of Edinburgh have succeeded in using a hair-thin fibre endoscope to gain insights into hardly-accessible brain structures. For the first time, scientists are able to achieve high-resolution observations of neuronal structures inside deep brain areas of living mice. The study has been published in the journal “Light: Science & Applications”.

Using a hair-thin optical fibre, the researchers can look into deep brain areas of a living mouse as if through a keyhole. Recently introduced methods for...

New China and US studies back use of pulse oximeters for assessing blood pressure

Fast and easy blood pressure monitoring could soon be at your fingertips--literally--thanks to new University of British Columbia research that showed BP can be assessed by a fingertip oximeter, a tool not generally used for that purpose.

"We found that the oximeter, which clips on to a finger or toe to measure heart rate and the amount of oxygen in the blood, can detect normal, elevated or high...

Medica 2018: New software for a more efficient planning of minimally invasive surgery

In order to remove the appendix, usually only a small surgery tunnel is necessary. But doctors rely on such minimally invasive surgeries in other areas, such as tumor removal scenrios. However, such surgeries must be planned precisely in advance. Doctors use different diagnostic procedures to find the best solution, which is very time consuming. A Software developed by computer scientists from Kaiserslautern could help doctors to prepare for such operations more easily in the future. At the Medica medical technology trade fair in Düsseldorf from 12th to 15th November, the researchers will present their method at the research stand (hall 7a, stand B06) of Rhineland-Palatinate.

Many surgeons today use minimally invasive surgery to remove, for example, a tumour in the brain: A small hole in the cranium is sufficient for them to reach...
