Surgery by satellite -- New possibilities at medicine's cutting edge

... of a delay between the image of the patient being captured and being displayed on the console, or between the surgeon sending an instruction and the robot responding. A team of 11 researchers, who work jointly in the Department of Medical Biophysics, The University of Western Ontario, London, Ontario, and ...

Ruling out pulmonary embolism with a simple bedside protocol

...ults were available. Importantly, the study design captured the physicians "gestalt" or gut instinct of how likely they thought PE was on their list. The results showed that fully two thirds of all testing is done in patients where the physician believed that the probability of PE was less than 15%. In the ...

Scientists create dual-modality microbeads to improve identification of disease biomarkers

... urine. Viruses, proteins or other biomarkers are captured on the bead surface. After the beads are removed from the liquid, optical imaging is used to determine the concentration of a specific protein or virus in the liquid sample based on the number of proteins or viruses attached to the surface of the bea...

Concentrations of certain toxins in breast milk are low, study finds

...id. "So in this case, exposure was probably poorly captured by the air samplers set up in the living rooms." The indoor VOC levels measured in the current study are comparable to what has been reported in inner cities across the United States, the researchers say. "Therefore, it's also likely that the lev...

Innovative movies show real-time immune-cell activity within tumors

...a second group, no such vaccine was given. Movies captured with the two-photon microscope then recorded the unfolding scene in the so-called tumor microenvironment. How would the green T cells behave in the two groups of mice? "In the animals that received the vaccination, we saw two waves of activity afte...

Quick diagnosis of flu strains possible with new microchip test

...re of the target gene. By analyzing the pattern of captured targets, doctors can diagnose the cause of infection. A key challenge in designing a gene chip for flu diagnosis is determining which flu virus gene sequences to use as probes, notes Dr. Rowlen. In a companion paper, the researchers describe a pow...

Keep the baby, toss the bathwater: How kidneys retain proteins, discard waste

...hington University School of Medicine in St. Louis captured images of a defective version of a kidney structure leaking a substance from the blood into the urine. The images suggest that the structure, known as the glomerular basement membrane (GBM), normally plays a key role in keeping blood proteins out of ...

Study examines usefulness of cardiac CT scan for detecting blockages in coronary arteries

... simultaneously. With a 16-row MDCT, 16 images are captured per rotation of the machine. Some previous studies have indicated promising results for this technology, but it remains uncertain whether their findings may be replicated in clinical centers with different levels of expertise.
