Virtual Biopsy in Development to Detect Melanoma

Sunset

An engineering professor in Colorado is developing a new process for diagnosing melanoma, an aggressive form of skin cancer that analyzes conditions in the skin without removing tissue samples. . . . → Read More: Virtual Biopsy in Development to Detect Melanoma

Trial Testing Radio Waves to Clear Nasal Blockages

Bradley Otto

A small-scale clinical trial is recruiting participants to test radio signals for clearing nasal passages obstructed by deformed soft tissue, instead of drugs or surgery used today in many cases. . . . → Read More: Trial Testing Radio Waves to Clear Nasal Blockages

Technique Devised to Monitor Blood Flow in Brain

Brain circuits

A bioengineering lab developed a technique using common photography chips to measure blood flow in the brain, which could help detect traumatic brain injury, stroke, and related disorders. . . . → Read More: Technique Devised to Monitor Blood Flow in Brain

Bio-Inspired Surgical Camera Highlights Cancer Tissue

A camera modeled on capabilities of a butterfly’s eye offers surgeons definitive images of tumor tissue for removal, as demonstrated in tests with lab animals and patients with breast cancer. . . . → Read More: Bio-Inspired Surgical Camera Highlights Cancer Tissue
