Sweat Sensor Detects Key Biomarkers That Provide Early Warning of COVID-19 and Flu

A team of bioengineers has designed a wearable sensor that can detect two key biomarkers of infection in human sweat, a significant step toward making it possible for users to receive early warnings of infections such as COVID-19 and influenza. More...

Study Assesses Impact of COVID-19 on Ventilation/Perfusion Scintigraphy

A scientific e-poster presented during the 2022 ARRS Annual Meeting in Los Angeles, USA discussed how to prevent contamination and spread of COVID-19 during nuclear medicine ventilation/perfusion scintigraphy (V/Q) by modifying to lung perfusion scintigraphy only. More...

CT Imaging Study Finds Vaccination Reduces Risk of COVID-19 Associated Pulmonary Embolism

A retrospective review that examined the incidence of pulmonary embolism (PE) in COVID positive patients during computed tomography pulmonary angiography (CTPA) exams in the emergency department (ED) has found that vaccination reduces the risk of COVID-19 associated PE. More...

Longer Interval Between COVID-19 Vaccines Generates Up to Nine Times as Many Antibodies

New research presented at this year’s European Congress of Clinical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases (ECCMID 2022) has shown that a longer interval between primary COVID-19 vaccine doses can boost antibody production up to nine-fold. More...

Third Day in Hospital a ‘Tipping Point’ in Severity of COVID-19 Pneumonia

New research presented at this year’s European Congress of Clinical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases (ECCMID 2022) has identified the third day of hospitalization as a tipping point in the progression of disease among symptomatic patients admitted for COVID-19 pneumonia. More...

AI Model for Monitoring COVID-19 Predicts Mortality Within First 30 Days of Admission

Researchers have developed an AI model for the early prediction of mortality (within the first 30 days of admission to the emergency department), focusing principally on adults aged over 50. They have also developed a deep learning application that helps to predict severity in all age groups, with the advantage of being able to operate even with incomplete patient information, offering robust and reliable AI in the event of data quality issues.
