Type 2 diabetes: Poor sleep slows wound healing

  A new study, published recently in the journal SLEEP, studied the impact of sleep fragmentation on wound healing. The scientists compared obese mice with features of type 2 diabetes with normal-weight mice without type 2 diabetes. First study author Mark McLain, of the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, collaborated with Prof. Ralph Lydic and…

Fruit consumption lowered risk of complications in people with diabetes

Most of us know that eating fresh fruit and vegetables is good for our health. However, people diagnosed with diabetes may avoid fruit due to its high sugar content. New research investigates the health benefits of fresh fruit consumption among people with diabetes. The researchers examined the effects of fruit consumption on almost 500,000 people…

A GPS for inside your body.Wireless system suggests future where doctors could implant sensors to track tumors or even dispense drugs

  Biomedical processes like imaging often require cutting someone open or making them swallow huge tubes with cameras on them. But what if could get the same results with methods that are less expensive, invasive and time-consuming. Life Science and Biomedical Technology 2018 Conference accentuation information on the powerful natural structures in Life Science and Biomedical Technology….

Electron tomography technique leads to 3-D reconstructions at the nanoscale

  Understanding the microscopic structure of a material is key to understanding how it functions and its functional properties. Advances in fields like materials science have increasingly pushed abilities to determine these features to even higher resolutions. One technique for imaging at nanoscale resolution, transmission electron microscopy (TEM), is one example of promising technology in this…

Artificial Intelligence in Bio-Medical Domain

 Artificial Intelligence or AI is a subfield of computer science, which can be defined as the intelligence exhibited by a machine or a software having a remarkable impact on the field of biology and medicine. Imaging, on the other hand has become an essential component of many fields in medicine, biomedical applications, biotechnology and laboratory…

Novel PET tracer clearly identifies and tracks bacterial infection in lungs

  Researchers at the University of Louisville, Kentucky, have demonstrated that a new radiotracer, 2-18F-fluorodeoxysorbitol (18F-FDS), can identify and track bacterial infection in lungs better than current imaging methods and is able to differentiate bacterial infection from inflammation. The study is the featured basic science article in the January issue of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine….

Histology in 3-D: New staining method enables Nano-CT imaging of tissue samples

To date, examining patient tissue samples has meant cutting them into thin slices for histological analysis. This might now be set to change — thanks to a new staining method devised by an interdisciplinary team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM). This allows specialists to investigate three-dimensional tissue samples using the Nano-CT system also…

Flexible ultrasound patch could make it easier to inspect damage in odd-shaped structures

Researchers have developed a stretchable, flexible patch that could make it easier to perform ultrasound imaging on odd-shaped structures, such as engine parts, turbines, reactor pipe elbows and railroad tracks — objects that are difficult to examine using conventional ultrasound equipment. Meetings International respects every one of the Directors/Managers and Business Delegates, Founders, Director of…
