A new wave of imaging technologies, driven by the falling cost of computing, is transforming the way doctors can examine patients.
In a bioengineering laboratory at Stanford University, Christopher Contag, a microbiologist, is designing new approaches to “virtual” pathology. He has created a variety of instruments that can travel the esophagus, stomach and intestine, allowing pathologists to probe for cancers by peering in three dimensions below the surface of the skin.
Frustrated by the time between when a tissue sample is taken and when a pathology laboratory can examine it, Dr. Contag, who oversees a molecular imaging laboratory at Stanford, is experimenting with a variety of next-generation endoscopes. The new devices not only portray the surface of the skin, but also use a variety of optical and acoustical techniques to virtually “punch holes” in hundreds of cells deep within the human body, while using contrast agents to identify abnormalities.
He describes the approach as “point-of-care pathology,” part of a convergence of medical technologies that make it increasingly possible for surgeons and medical technicians to make informed, on-the-spot decisions about patient care.
“We want to give the pathologist what he already looks at, so it’s pretty easy,” he said.
In the half-century since the movie “Fantastic Voyage” portrayed a miniaturized submarine navigating the human body to find and destroy a blood clot, researchers have relied on optical, magnetic and X-ray imaging techniques to peer into bodies with ever-greater precision.
Today a new wave of imaging technologies is again transforming the practice of medicine. They include new pathology tools — like the ones Dr. Contag’s team is developing — to give doctors an instantaneous diagnosis, as well as inexpensive systems, often based on smartphones, that can extend advanced imaging technologies to the entire world.
Since it was first announced in August, Rockchip RK3066 dual core mini PCs have been popping up everywhere, and AFAIK those are currently the only low cost (sub $100) dual core Android TV Sticks available.

Need For Speed Most Wanted Coming Soon To iPhone And iPad - AppStore & Google Play
EA sports has just poster a teaser for the upcoming game for iOS and Android. Need For Speed - Most Wanted, is perhaps the most popular car racing game from EA and to make the users enjoy the same experience on consoles, the game is finally arriving on AppStore and PlayStore. EA sports is not new in console gaming and has already launched many car racing games like NFS Underground, NFS Hot Pursuit NFS Pro Street and all these games were very successful and stayed in the most popular listing for a long time. Following the success of the previous games, EA would be releasing the most popular of all NFS games, Most Wanted very soon and will definitely get overwhelming response from the uses of smartphones and tablets as Android and iOS market has now become the most happening and strong market for app developers. Some developers were surprised to get amazing results from their apps with the in-app purchase system that allows "rich" users to unlock levels by purchasing coins and upgrades that comes in various denominations ranging from $0.99 - $49. Game developers have even noticed that their best PC couldn't get revenue as much as the games from android and AppStore does. Video Trailer
ITU representatives repeatedly assured participants that the ITU process is "open" and welcoming of civil society input, but it's clear that there's still a lot of daylight between our understandings of what an open and participatory process really looks like.
Have you ever thought of teaching your students how to create an ePortfolio ? Well if you have not then it is about time to take the idea seriously. There are actually several reasons why you should encourage students to create their own ePortfolios but before we delve into them let me just briefly define what an ePortfolio is.
