How The Autofluorescence System Works- Description

reduced autofluorescence increased autofluorescence Steven Palter, MD, creator of DITM just posted breaking news on his prize winning “x-ray vision” autofluorescent endoscopy system. Here is a summary of how the system works. A specialized laparoscopy system was designed based upon the same general principle as fluorescence spectroscopy. In contrast to reflection, where light bounces unchanged […]

New 3D Microendoscope- Analysis of How It Differs and Its Potential

  Thanks to medgadget for reporting on Massachusetts General Hospital investigators development of a three-dimensional miniature endoscope.  This is a topic near and dear to my heart since the first medical device development I did was on microendoscopes back in 1994.  This new scope is fundementally different from traditional scopes.  As the press release reports: Standard […]

Thought Control Surgery- Brain Hacking to Come

I have written about the brain gate computer brain interface before.  The company has now announced its use by a patient with ALS.  Cyberkinetics Neurotechnology Systems, Inc. Cyberkinetics) announced that Leigh R. Hochberg, M.D., Ph.D., Principal Investigator in the pilot trial of the BrainGate Neural Interface System (BrainGate), presented preliminary findings from the trial’s first […]

New No Incision Surgery- Amazing Case Study of Procedure Looking For a Use

Cnn reports today from a national meeting of bariatric surgeons.  They describe a keynote talk of the future of non-incisional surgery called NOTES- that has NO REAL USE YET!  This is the Alien stomach buster operation I have written about.  This is an amazing case study on technology looking for a use in medicine.  Several […]

Air Force Developing Morphing Aircraft – Idea For New Surgical Tools

Researchers are aiming to find ways to enable aircraft to change shape during flight to improve performance or efficiency. Modern materials are enabling engineers to take a fresh look at the idea of aircraft that can flex, twist or change shape to make them more maneuverable. NASA and the Defense Department are funding research programs […]

Tiny Animal Becomes An Organ- Can We Engineer This?

Scientific American: Tiny Genome May Reflect Organelle in the Making Scientific Amrican is reporting on an organism with the smallest known genome.  So small in fact, that it lacks half the genes thought necessary for life.  This type of mini-creature only exists as a parasite inside th body of a host.  What’s so amazing is […]
