No. 1: Biomedical Engineering

Congratulations to Niha Beig and Nathaniel Braman, graduate students in the Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics, for winning the RSNA research trainee award.

US Patent 10,064,594 entitled "Characterizing disease and treatment response with quantitative vessel tortuosity radiomics".

In collaboration with the Foundation Fighting Blindness and Alzheimer's Drug Discovery Foundation, The Harrington Discovery Institute at University Hospitals has announced three new scholars.

Dr. Anant Madabhushi (F. Alex Nason II Professor of Biomedical Engineering), Nate Braman (graduate student, BME), Prateek Prasanna (Research Associate, BME), Vinay Varadhan (Assistant Professor, Cancer Center), Salendra Singh (research associate, Cancer Center) and Dr. Lyndsay Harris (NIH Staff) have been awarded US Patent 10,055,842 entitled "Entropy-based radiogenomic descriptions on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for molecular characterization of breast cancer".

Artificial intelligence (AI) image analysis software has become more adept at diagnosing heart failure and various cancers than top-flight doctors, according to researchers at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH.

 

Researchers at the Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics and collaborators have been awarded two new US patents in the areas of digital pathology and precision medicine.

How is artificial intelligence changing radiology and pathology to enhance care delivery and improve patient outcomes?

A team of researchers from the Case School of Engineering and School of Medicine published the first research paper on their blood-clotting device, ClotChip, in the Journal of Thrombosis and Hemostasis.

With artificial intelligence, machines can now examine thousands of medical images – and billions of pixels within these images – to identify patterns too subtle for a radiologist or pathologist to identify.

Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland Clinic have launched a new partnership to advance research and education in biomedical engineering (BME) across greater Cleveland’s growing health innovation ecosystem.

Bolu Ajiboye, PhD and Robert Kirsch, PhD received first place for the 2018 International Annual Brain Computer Interface (BCI) Research Award, for their project entitled “Restoring Functional Reach-to-Grasp in a Person with Chronic Tetraplegia using Implanted Functional Electrical Stimulation and Intracortical Brain-Computer Interfaces.”

A car traveling on an icy highway skids into a semi, resulting in victims with major injuries and uncontrolled bleeding. There's little that first responders can do to help broken blood vessels clot.

Nanoparticle technology mimics blood platelets to prevent and treat bleeding from trauma, surgery

Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland-based biotechnology company Haima Therapeutics LLC have signed a two-year option to license a technology to prevent and treat bleeding complications from trauma, low platelet counts and surgery.

Three Hathaway Brown students spent May 13-18 in Pittsburgh, PA where they competed in the Intel ISEF (International Science & Engineering Fair), the largest pre-college science fair in the world.

Xconomy New York — It turns out interpreting biopsies isn’t entirely unlike mapping the rocky terrain of Mars. Thomas Fuchs, a former research technologist at NASA, is taking some of what he learned in training algorithms to navigate the Red Planet for the Mars Rover project and applying it to create cancer-detecting algorithms.

A robot in Singapore assembled an IKEA chair, new MRI sensors can peer deep inside the brain, and noise-canceling tech for windows can cut street noise by half. A nice try, but this week’s science will keep people talking.

Case Western Reserve University’s diagnostic imaging computers outperform human counterparts, but offer tools for better, less costly care
