Interviews Concerning Innovations

Interviews concerning innovations

Inventions, technologies, devices - something new always happens in the field of medical technology. Experts, researchers and inventors talk about prospects of new treatments and sometimes also their dangers - on


Real-time imaging of lung lesions

Photo: Lung adenocarcinoma is marked in green [30/07/2015] More than 80,000 people undergo resection of a pulmonary tumor each year, and currently the only method to determine if the tumor is malignant is histologic analysis. A new study reports that a targeted molecular contrast agent can be used successfully to cause lung adenocarcinomas to fluoresce during pulmonary surgery. This enables real-time optical imaging and the identification of cancer cells.Real-time imaging of lung lesions - Read more

Observing brain network dynamics to diagnose Alzheimer's

COPD: Imaging could improve treatment

Photo: Images of lungs [07/07/2015] Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) provide important information on the symptoms and exercise capabilities of people with mild-to-moderate chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), according to a new study published online in the journal Radiology. Researchers said the findings point the way to better treatment for some COPD patients.COPD: Imaging could improve treatment - Read more

Making the invisible visible with fluorescence

Photo: Image with red luminous bladder, next cystoscope [22/06/2015] Bladder tumors have different growth characteristics. In most cases, they are limited to the inner wall of the bladder and thus well resectable. Unlike carcinoma in situ, which becomes muscle invasive after a certain amount of time. To be able to completely remove the tumor during resection, photodynamic diagnostics (PDD) can make sense.Making the invisible visible with fluorescence - Read more

Optical Coherence Tomography: Removing brain tumor safer

( Source: )

Graphic: Technique is used in the brain [18/06/2015] Brain surgery is difficult for good reason: When removing a tumor, for example, neurosurgeons walk a tightrope as they try to take out as much of the cancer as possible while keeping crucial brain tissue intact. Now Johns Hopkins researchers have developed an imaging technology that could provide surgeons with a color-coded map of a patient’s brain showing which areas are and are not cancer.Optical Coherence Tomography: Removing brain tumor safer - Read more
