A study published in the Journal of Digital Imaging (2019)  looked at whether Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based, computer-aided detection (CAD) software can be used to reduce false positives per image (FPPI) on mammograms as compared to an FDA-approved conventional CAD. The study showed a 69% decrease in FPPI which, the researchers said, could also potentially […]
Millions of people worldwide suffer from reduced motor abilities resulting from strokes, brain tumour surgery or accidents. In most cases, prosthetic and assistive devices are the only treatment option. However, current neuroprosthetics are limited in function as they replace only single motor impairments. But this looks set to change with an exciting new initiative called […]
International Hospital speaks to Archie Mayani, VP of Product Management at Change Healthcare Enterprise Imaging, about the company and their cloud-based imaging platform, one of the first major cloud-native enterprise imaging platforms offered as a fully managed software as a service.
A new, groundbreaking study from the University of Bergen shows that a patients’ own stem cells can be used to grow new bone. This can potentially help millions of people who are partially edentulous and have insufficient bone for placement of dental implants. International Hospital reports.
A research team led by the University of Texas (UT) Southwestern has derived a new “intermediate” embryonic stem cell type from multiple species that can contribute to chimeras and create precursors to sperm and eggs in a culture dish.
A team of Johns Hopkins University researchers has developed new software that could revolutionize how DNA is sequenced, making it far faster and less expensive to map anything from yeast genomes to cancer genes.
Research from Karolinska Institutet shows that the degree of frailty, a measure of a person’s functional level before contracting the disease, can better predict Covid-19 survival than the patient’s age. The analysis of 250 multimorbid older adults who received care for Covid-19 at the Aging Theme at Karolinska University Hospital in Huddinge, Sweden also shows […]
Frailty measures are essential to include in clinical practice so one can develop various interventions for resulting disability for older adults. Over the years, several instruments for assessing frailty have been used.
Senior citizens who are a little weaker or frail are often prone to falling. The FRADE concept of the Fraunhofer Center AICOS in Porto, Portugal offers effective help with prevention. Sensor-based analysis of movements serves as a basis for a tailored training program. If the person actually falls, the system alerts the caregiver via text […]
