New Type of Digestive Endoscopy Diagnoses Small, Early Esophageal Cancers without Biopsy

Researchers have found that endocytoscopy for the observation and diagnosis of early esophageal cancer has a high accuracy (95%) and specificity (92%), which is comparable to the efficacy of diagnosis after pathological biopsy. More...

Innovative New Instrument Could Transform Oral Cancer Diagnosis

Identifying lesions of the mouth (dysplasia) that have the potential to become cancerous can be a difficult task and, as a result, patients may receive unnecessary treatments or have missed cancer diagnoses. Now, a hand-held device that can rapidly and accurately identify lesions in the mouth that will develop into cancer could transform oral cancer diagnosis. More...

Extravascular Defibrillator System Treats Abnormal Heart Rhythms

A new extravascular defibrillator system provides the life-saving benefits of traditional implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) while avoiding certain risks because its lead (thin wire) is placed outside the heart and veins. More...

Universal Connector Makes It Simpler and Quicker to Assemble Stretchable Healthcare Devices

Easily assembling stretchable devices while retaining their strength and reliability under stress still remains a challenge that has limited their development. Now, an international team of researchers has developed a universal connector for assembling stretchable devices simply and quickly. More...
