Artificial intelligence is making its way into health care, and one of its first stops is making sense of all of those scans that doctors order. Already, studies have shown that AI-based tools can, in some cases, pick out abnormal growths that could be cancerous tumors better than doctors can, mainly because digesting and synthesizing huge volumes of information is what AI does best. In a study published Feb. 14 in Circulation, researchers in the U.K. and the U.S. report that an AI program can reliably predict heart attacks and strokes. Kristopher Knott, a research fellow at the British Heart Foundation, and his team condu...

In this study, the asymmetrical freestyle swimming performance of a male elite level swimmer who breathed every second arm stroke (unilaterally) was investigated. A laser body scan and multi-angle video footage of the athlete were used to generate a swimming biomechanical model. This model was then used in a Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) fluid simulation of swimming through a virtual pool. The results from this study enabled the kinematic asymmetry to be related to the consequential fluid dynamic asymmetry. The intra-cyclic fluctuations in the streamwise forces and speed were also examined. Hand angles of attack we...

(American Roentgen Ray Society) A unique assessment of imaging-based recommendations for the administration of IV recombinant tissue plasminogen activator based on unenhanced brain CT scans, the results published ahead-of-print in this April article from the American Journal of Roentgenology (AJR) constitute a strong foundation for the development of mobile-based telestroke services because they increase neuroradiologist availability and the possibility of using reperfusion therapies in resource-limited countries.

AbstractAdenosine is a ubiquitous neuromodulator that plays a role in sleep, vasodilation, and immune response and manipulating the adenosine system could be therapeutic for Parkinson ’s disease or ischemic stroke. Spontaneous transient adenosine release provides rapid neuromodulation; however, little is known about the effect of sex as a biological variable on adenosine signaling and this is vital information for designing therapeutics. Here, we investigate sex differences in spontaneous, transient adenosine release using fast‐scan cyclic voltammetry to measure adenosinein vivo in the hippocampus CA1, basolateral ...

Baker, Eileen Ly, Rachel Lee, Edith MathiowitzAbstractThe morphology and melting behavior of poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL) processed at varying pressure-temperature-time conditions (2000–20,000 lbf, 22–70 °C, and 5–15 min) were studied using polarized light microscopy (PLM), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), and X-Ray diffraction (XRD). Samples processed well below the melting region at 22 °C displayed minimal to no birefringent properties, wi...
