Extra sharp imaging

Dear Sir or Madam,

When one thinks of imaging, one probably first thinks of X-ray tomography. A team of researchers at the TU Munich has developed a camera concept based on neutrons that could also benefit medicine. For the time being, however, some research is still necessary. Find out what advantages the new system could theoretically have for medical imaging in our video: Extra sharp imaging for medicine

While our video deals with improved imaging, Dr Volker Zöllmer and Dr Claus Schreiner sat down with COMPAMED.com and talked more about invisible processes. What the new material composition developed at Fraunhofer IFAM is capable of doing in paint systems against bacteria and viruses, you can read in our interview: Disinfection with light.

Have a nice day!

Extra sharp imaging for medicine: Camera concept with neutrons

COMPAMED Video

Photo: Preview picture of the video
A team of researchers at the Technical University of Munich has developed a neutron-based camera concept that can take much sharper pictures of the inside of certain objects than previous systems. Even in fossilized material, details become discernible. Such as in fossils or metal.

Speed meets precision: A new laser scanning microscope improves cancer cell detection

Laboratory Medicine & Hygiene

Fraunhofer researchers have developed a very fast technology for determining whether a tumor has been fully removed – before the patient even leaves the operating theater. Using a combination of laser scanning microscopy and fluorescent tumor markers, doctors can detect any remaining cancer cells immediately after operations.

A stretchy display for shapable electronics

Electrical Engineering & Nanotechnology

As part of an overarching quest to build “skin-inspired” electronics that are soft and stretchy, Stanford University chemical engineer Zhenan Bao and her research team have been developing a display to change that. Now, after more than three years of work, they show the proof of principle toward a stretchable, potentially reshapable display in a new paper published in Nature.

Using hydrogel to remove kidney stone fragments

Materials Science

Kidney stones are often removed via an endoscopic procedure. If a stone is too large, the urologists break it into pieces using a laser. The larger pieces can be removed with a grasping instrument, but this is not possible for the smaller fragments – instead, they remain in the kidney in the hope that they will leave the body naturally.
