The innovative technology aims to be more accurate as well as cheaper to provide than today’s most common diagnostic tools such as X-ray mammography, ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
Research aims to make it possible to download and watch a video from a mobile device in a matter of seconds, and support emerging applications like remote surgery, where doctors will be able to use robots to operate on patients who are miles away without experiencing latency.
In a breakthrough that could transform cell therapies for incurable diseases, researchers at Sinai Health have developed a technology that may eliminate the need for immunosuppressive drugs in transplant patients.
New evidence suggests transplant recipients who receive a kidney from someone who has passed away from drug toxicity often experience excellent transplant outcomes – sometimes even better outcomes than recipients of organs from donors who died from other causes.
People who have long COVID – and especially those who were hospitalized from the virus or have diabetes – show a significant decline in kidney function in the 12 months following infection, a study reveals.
Open an anatomy textbook and any illustrations you find will mostly depict fit, young, white males. The University of Windsor’s Dave Andrews and the University of Calgary’s Heather Jamniczky want to change that.
Waterloo partnership with NOSM University is advancing equity in health care and well-being in the north
Employing physician assistants may improve efficiency in care delivery and cut down on healthcare dollars
A new molecule developed by a Calgary researcher shows promise in treating chronic pain without the use of opioids.
TCMs have been used for generations to treat disease; however, poor water solubility, limited bioavailability, and probable toxicity hamper their effective delivery. Liposomes, polymeric and inorganic nanoparticles, and organic/inorganic nanohybrids may improve TCM delivery to achieve better therapeutic results with fewer adverse effects than standard formulations.
