Nanodiamonds: “Our goal is not to be able to diagnose a specific disease, but to offer medicine a universal tool“

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[22/09/2014] They are not just “a girl's best friend“, but are also important helpers in medicine: diamonds. Yet the latter are so tiny that they are not visible to the naked eye. Dr. Patrick Happel at the Ruhr University Bochum in Germany studies so-called nanodiamonds. Someday soon, they are supposed to help in significantly improving medical imaging.Nanodiamonds: “Our goal is not to be able to diagnose a specific disease, but to offer medicine a universal tool“ - Read more

Photo: Hyperspectral imaging [03/07/2014] Today, doctors who really want to see if a wound is healing have to do a biopsy or some other invasive technique that can really only offer information about a small area. A technology called hyperspectral imaging offers doctors a noninvasive, painless way to discriminate between healthy and diseased tissue.Seeing your true colors: standards for hyperspectral imaging - Read more
