Bones in the wrist and hand

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration authorized marketing of software to help diagnose wrist fractures using machine-learning algorithms to read and interpret X-ray images. . . . → Read More: FDA Okays A.I.-Guided Wrist Fracture Software

Ingestible Device Designed to Monitor Gut Health

Ingestible gut sensor capsule

Biomedical engineers designed a sensor chip small enough to be swallowed, which in tests with pigs shows it can detect indicators of disease in the gut and transmit its readings to an external device. . . . → Read More: Ingestible Device Designed to Monitor Gut Health

Brain Stimulation Shown to Reduce Insulin Resistance

brain stimulationgraphic

Electrical stimulation of an area in the brain that releases the hormone dopamine is shown to increase sensitivity to insulin, opening a potential new pathway for treating type 2 diabetes. . . . → Read More: Brain Stimulation Shown to Reduce Insulin Resistance
