IDTechEx TVWorld's First Lung Delivery by Drone

World's First Lung Delivery by Drone

Unither Bioelectronics has set its sights on transforming the way we think of transplantable organ transportation, either donor organs or manufactured organs. In a proof-of-concept flight, the company transferred donor lungs for transplant between two hospitals using its proprietary aerial drone organ transportation technologies.

AI Based Technology Quickly Identifies Genetic Causes of Disease

AI Based Technology Quickly Identifies Genetic Causes of Disease

An artificial intelligence-based technology rapidly diagnoses rare disorders in critically ill children with high accuracy, according to a report by scientists. The benchmark finding, published in Genomic Medicine, foreshadows the next phase of medicine, where technology helps clinicians quickly determine the root cause of disease so they can give patients the right treatment sooner.

Wearable Head Scanner for Comfort, Mobility During Brain Scans

Wearable Head Scanner for Comfort, Mobility During Brain Scans

To collect accurate images of a patient's brain, the patient must be still and confined in a tube-like MRI scanner for a long period of time. To better assess their brain function and behavioral health, however, they should move naturally and freely during a scan. Researchers have proposed a solution to both clearly visualize and accurately assess the brain via photoacoustic imaging with a stretchable, flexible material.

IDTechEx TV3D Printing Blood Vessel Networks

3D Printing Blood Vessel Networks

Researchers have succeeded in creating a hierarchical blood vessel network, necessary for supplying blood to implanted tissue using 3D printing for creating big and small blood vessels to form for the first time a system that contained a functional combination of both.

Low Cost, Portable Device Could Diagnose Heart Attacks in Minutes

Low Cost, Portable Device Could Diagnose Heart Attacks in Minutes

Researchers have developed a sensor that could diagnose a heart attack in less than 30 minutes. Currently, it takes health care professionals hours to diagnose a heart attack. Initial results from an echocardiogram can quickly show indications of heart disease, but to confirm a patient is having a heart attack, a blood sample and analysis is required. Those results can take up to eight hours.
