Study: Most radiologists don’t notice a gorilla in a CT scan

Study: Most radiologists don’t notice a gorilla in a CT scan | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
Researchers added a dancing, waving gorilla to a standard CT scan of the lungs. Most radiologists totally missed it.

 

Most radiologists, however, did not see him. When asked "Did you see a gorilla on the final trial?" 20 of the 24 radiologists tested said they did not. It wasn't for lack of looking.


As the researchers write, in a forthcoming paper in Psychological Science, "eye-tracking revealed that, of the 20 radiologists who did not report the gorilla, 12 looked directly at the gorilla’s location when it was visible."

Gust MEES: This is a SHAME and lack of RESPONSIBILITY as a 6cm TUMOR was ALSO ONLY found after I asked and insisted for a SCINTIGRAPHY!!! ONLY after that SCINTIGRAPHY they analysed again the scans (there were 3!!!) and discovered the tumor!!!

New Orcam device turns the world into speech for the blind

New Orcam device turns the world into speech for the blind | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
OrCam is based on artificial intelligence and special algorithms built into a tiny computer that clips onto your eyeglasses.

 

Wearing an OrCam device clipped to her glasses, Negrin — who works for the company — can now do the smallest things that sighted people take for granted.


Just by pointing her finger at objects and listening to the device read the words and numbers, she can hand over money at the store without fear of being shortchanged. She can easily step on the right bus as it approaches her stop. And she can “read” the ingredients labels on products at the supermarket.


Costing about the same as a good hearing aid, the OrCam device is able to identify thousands of objects, including the faces of loved ones, dogs, buses, newspaper text and store signs, all with the point of the finger. Its voice system transmits the information to the wearer’s ear.

Brain-penetrating nanoparticle attacks deadly tumors

 

(Nanowerk News) Scientists have developed a new approach for treating a deadly brain cancer that strikes 15,000 in the United States annually and for which there is no effective long-term therapy. The researchers, from Yale and Johns Hopkins, have shown that the approach extends the lives of laboratory animals and are preparing to seek government approval for a human clinical trial.

 

“We wanted to make a system that would penetrate into the brain and deliver drugs to a greater volume of tissue,” said Mark Saltzman, a biomedical engineer at Yale and principal investigator of the research. “Drugs have to get to tumor cells in order to work, and they have to be the right drugs.

Team develops new technique to track cell interactions in living bodies

Team develops new technique to track cell interactions in living bodies | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
Researchers at Stanford University School of Medicine have developed a new technique to see how different types of cells interact in a living mouse.

 

The process uses light-emitting proteins that glow when two types of cells come close together.

 

Using the technique, the team was able to pinpoint where in the body metastatic cancer cells ended up after they broke off from an initial tumor site, using readily available lab reagents. The team chose chemicals that are easily available in most life sciences laboratories because they wanted to develop a technique that could be widely used.

A man has had the first ever 3D-printed skull-replacement fitted, swapping out a whole 75 per cent of the bone in his head for a man-made replacement.
Gust MEES's insight:

 

Oxford Performance Materials, the company behind the implant, thinks that there's no reason these 3D-printed bone replacements couldn't be used to repair other damaged areas, like limbs. Is this the start of the body-part replacement trend? Will we soon be upgrading our skeletons, Wolverine style? Who knows, but at least you know if you break your nut you'll now be able to just print out a replacement.

Brown University creates first wireless, implanted brain-computer interface

Brown University creates first wireless, implanted brain-computer interface | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it

Brown’s wireless BCI, fashioned out of hermetically sealed titanium, looks a lot like a pacemaker. Inside there’s a li-ion battery, an inductive (wireless) charging loop, a chip that digitizes the signals from your brain, and an antenna for transmitting those neural spikes to a nearby computer.

 

The BCI is connected to a small chip with 100 electrodes protruding from it, which, in this study, was embedded in the somatosensory cortex or motor cortex.

 

These 100 electrodes produce a lot of data, which the BCI transmits at 24Mbps over the 3.2 and 3.8GHz bands to a receiver that is one meter away. The BCI’s battery takes two hours to charge via wireless inductive charging, and then has enough juice to last for six hours of use.
