At the MEDICA trade fair to be held in Dusseldorf, Germany from 14-17 November, apart from the new products of the more than 4,200 participants from about 70 countries, the MEDICA HEALTH IT FORUM, an integrated part of the trade fair, will offer an overview of top trends in data-driven medicine.
The 4th edition of HealthTech Innovation Days (HTID), was held in-person in Paris along with a virtual platform on 13-14 October. The event brought together more than 165 European health technology companies, 15 pharmaceutical and industrial companies and over 300 international investors. Eighty-six international experts lead 19 round table discussions which can be viewed online […]
New modelling conducted for WHO/Europe by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington’s School of Medicine in the United States shows that in the first two years of the pandemic, at least 17 million individuals across the 53 Member States of the WHO European Region may have experienced post […]
some people — even those who had mild versions of the disease — have symptoms that last weeks or months after an initial COVID infection. These ongoing health problems, called post-COVID conditions (PCC), post-COVID-19 syndrome, long COVID-19, and post-acute sequelae of SARS COV-2 infection (PASC), can decrease quality of life for patients and increase the […]
A team of researchers from the NYU Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) Advanced Microfluidics and Microdevices Laboratory (AMMLab) have developed a simple, yet effective approach for on-demand tactile sensing in minimally-invasive surgery, overcoming a key limitation – the inability of surgeons to “feel” tissues during an operation. The researchers successfully tested the efficacy of their new tool, […]
When you hear the term “robot,” you might think of complicated machinery working in factories or roving on other planets. But “millirobots” might change that. They’re robots about as wide as a finger that someday could deliver drugs or perform minimally invasive surgery. Now, researchers reporting in ACS Applied Polymer Materials have developed a soft, […]
40% of medical doctors are close to retirement age in one third of countries in Europe and central Asia, finds new WHO/Europe report
Thirty-four NHS Trusts in England are currently rolling out iRefer CDS – a cloud-based clinical decision support (CDS) solution that provides clinicians with access to evidence-based radiological investigation guidelines at the point-of-care to ensure patients get the correct imaging scan the first time. In turn the CDS will help minimise patient exposure to ionising radiation […]
New research from University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) suggests that a combination of brain imaging data and machine learning can accurately diagnose obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) significantly faster than the standard methods now in use that are complex, costly, time-consuming, and can delay crucial treatment.
Researchers at the University of East Anglia have developed cutting-edge technology to diagnose patients with heart failure in record time. The state-of-the-art technology uses magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to create detailed 4D flow images of the heart. How-ever, unlike a standard MRI scan, which can take up to 20 minutes or more, the new 4D […]
