It Looks Like One Really Good Hospital Is Doing Its Best With High-Tech. Moving The Right Way With GP And Patient Information Access!

This appeared a day or so ago:Hi-tech health to benefit patientsThe Australian12:00AM February 3, 2018Sarah-Jane TaskerHospitals without patients, NASA-style command centres in healthcare facilities, 3D-printed organs — it sounds like something from a sci-fi novel but it could be part of Australia’s healthcare system in less than 10 years.With healthcare budgets reaching unsustainable levels as people live longer, using technology better is now at the forefront of innovation in the healthcare sector.The issue is being tackled globally. Last week at the World Economic Forum in Davos, the chief executive of Nokia, Rajeev Suri, said his vision for the future of medical treatment included remote surgeries, 5G ambulances and miniaturised, wearable ­scanners.Already, artificial intelligence and algorithms ar e being used to assist clinicians. GE Healthcare’s top expert in Australia, Matt Tucker, said while the clinician would never be replaced, AI would help guide decision-making and do it...

Check-Cap is getting one step closer to having its capsule-based screening method for colorectal cancer on the U.S. market. The Isfiya, Israel-based company has received FDA conditional approval for an IDE to initiate a pilot study of the C-Scan capsule. FDA’s conditional approval of the IDE requires Check-Cap to provide additional information to the agency and the company may begin enrolling patients immediately upon approval by the study site's Institutional Review Board (IRB). The trial will consist of up to 45 patients and it will be a single-arm study. Patients who are enrolled will be those conside...

Conclusions: The ptWBS diagnostic role was clinically relevant for the therapeutic strategies of our patients only in 1.1% of the cases. The cost-effectiveness of performing RRA and ptWBS in all LR and IR patients to find 1 –2% of the cases with distant metastases remains controversial.Eur Thyroid J

This study investigates the surgical accuracy of freehand, CAS- and PSI-assisted joint-preserving tumor resections and tests whether integration of CAS with PSI (CAS + PSI) can further improve accuracy. CT scans of 16 simulated tumors around the knee in four human cadavers were performed and imported into engineering software (MIMICS) for 3D planning of multiplanar joint-preserving resections. The planned resections were transferred to the navigation system and/or used for PSI design. Location accuracy (LA), entry and exit points of all 56 planes, and resection time were measured by postprocedural CT. Both CA...

We report a ZrO2/Fe2O3/RGO nanocomposite was synthesized via insitu-hydrothermal method and characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), energy dispersive X-ray (EDX), UV–Visible diffuse reflectance spectrophotometer (DRS), Raman, Photoluminescence (PL) and BET analysis to study the structural, morphological and optical properties. FESEM images declares that ZrO2 particles are uniform discs like nanostructure shape with clear facets and narrow size distribution; Fe2O3 were agglomerated, which leads to have completely dispersed with the...

This study evaluated how the treatment of coconut fiber (CF) affected the fiber itself and the composites prepared with treated and in nature coconut fiber used as reinforcement and PHB (polyhydroxybutyrate), as matrix. The coconut fiber in nature (CFi) underwent a thermochemical treatment (CFt) with hot water (80 °C). The efficiency of treatment was evaluated by FT-IR analysis. By FT-IR and scanning electron microscope showed partial removal of impurities such as waxes. The composites of (PHB/CFi or PHB/CFt) with weight rate of 90/10 and 80/20 were characterized by thermal and morphological properties. Thermogr...

In this study, lattices of Bi2WO6 crystals were tuned by cerium doping in a hydrothermal process in order to enhance the shielding properties against low-energy gamma rays. The products obtained were characterized by Raman, X-ray diffraction, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, and transmission electron microscopy techniques. The results demonstrated that cerium ions were successfully introduced into the lattices of the Bi2WO6 crystals and they partially replaced the bismuth ion sites. The shielding results showed that 10 mol% cerium doping allowed the Ce-doped Bi2WO6 crystals to shield agains...

Check-Cap (NSDQ:CHEK) said today it won conditional approval from the FDA for its investigational device exemption application to launch a pilot study of its C-Scan system. The Israel-based company’s C-Scan system is designed as an alternative to standard colon cancer screening methods. The system uses an ingestible, ultra-low dose X-ray capsule and a wireless tracking system to return structural information on the lumen of the colon to create 2D and 3D maps. The conditional approval will require Check-Cap to provide additional information to the FDA, but will allow the company to being enrolling patients immedi...

Durand, Alejandro Moreschi, Marta E. Hallak, Guillermo G. MontichAbstractCalreticulin (CRT) is a calcium-binding protein that participates in several cellular processes including the control of protein folding and homeostasis of Ca2+. Its folding, stability and functions are strongly controlled by the presence of Ca2+. The oligomerization state of CRT is also relevant for its functions. We studied the thermal transitions of monomers and oligo...
