he gene-editing technology CRISPR could very well one day rid the world of its most devastating diseases, allowing us to simply edit away the genetic code responsible for an illness. One of the things standing in the way of turning that fantasy into reality, though, is the problem of off-target effects. Now Microsoft is hoping to use artificial intelligence to fix this problem.
Despite the availability of endoscopic therapy, many patients in the United States undergo surgical resection for non-malignant colorectal polyps. We aimed to quantify and examine trends in the use of surgery for non-malignant colorectal polyps in a nationally representative sample.
The risk of dying from scheduled surgery in Africa is more than double the global average, researchers said on Wednesday, in a study shedding light on one of the continent's biggest but poorly investigated healthcare problems.
Researchers have developed a new way to magnetise molecules found naturally in the human body, paving the way for a new generation of low-cost magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology that would transform our ability to diagnose and treat diseases including cancer, diabetes and dementia.
An innovative device for measuring the change of the femur position during hip replacement surgery has been built by scientists from Lodz University of Technology. Its use shortens the time of surgery and gives better chance that patients after surgery will not have problems with walking.
People with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) who use long-acting inhaled bronchodilators may have an increased risk of heart attacks and strokes right after they start taking these medicines, a Taiwanese study suggests.
The movement within the wearable market is very clear. Demand makes that wearables are becoming less expensive and increasingly commoditized. Just better sensors are now no longer enough. Wearables need to be smarter and more useful. They need to analyze multiple data at once, or so to say, be more holistic. To do so, many wearable makers all over the world are focusing on AI-powered devices.
