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


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

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

The method opens up new ways of imaging the fine structure of matter.Novel source of X-rays for imaging purposes - Read more

Aneurysms may recur years after endovascular treatment

Photo: Blood vessel [09/06/2015] Endovascular treatment (EVT) of intracranial aneurysm is effective in preventing long-term bleeding, but may be followed by aneurysm recurrences in a significant proportion of cases, according to a new magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) study.Aneurysms may recur years after endovascular treatment - Read more
