How squid ink could make going to the dentist painless
[Image from unsplash.com]Squid ink could be used as a new imaging method at the dentist to check for gum disease, according to new research from the University of California at San Diego. Combining squid ink with light and ultrasound, engineers at UCSD have created a new dental imaging method that can painlessly and non-invasively examine a patient’s gums. The method is also more comprehensive and more accurate than current methods. “The last time I was at the dentist, I realized that the tools that are currently being used to image teeth and gums could use significant updating,” Jesse Jokerst, a nano eng...

Serena Williams Would Like to Introduce the Internet to Her Baby Daughter
Tennis superstar Serena Williams missed the U.S. Open this week, but still managed to win big. Williams gave birth to her daughter with Reddit co-founder and fiancé Alexis Ohanian.

Siemens & #039; New Offering Could Give Heart Teams a Better View
As treatment options for structural heart disease continue to rapidly evolve, procedures increasingly involve multimodality imaging and multidisciplinary clinical teams.

Emerging Technologies in EMS: Help or Hindrance?
We've seen some remarkable changes in the way EMS is provided around the country since its inception more than 50 years ago. We've gone from rudimentary first aid skills and rushing every patient to the hospital, to an expanded scope of practice that includes numerous treatment modalities and drugs, coupled with triaged response and selective, cautious transport. But we haven't always relied on science and evidence to make our decisions about new devices or protocols. Until recently, we've demonstrated a propensity to grab on to the latest gizmo or newest treatment fad based solely on assumptions. That's changing. Rapid Re...
