A team of researchers and clinicians led by the University of Adelaide in South Australia has found that an “imaging needle” may reduce the risk of dangerous brain bleeds in patients undergoing brain biopsy.
Published today in the journal Science Advances, the study describes how they fashioned the imaging device with a tiny fiber-optic camera encased within a brain biopsy needle. The imaging needle can detect blood vessels with a very high degree of accuracy (91.2% sensitivity and 97.7% specificity), according to a report that appeared in The Line South Australia.
At DeviceTalks Boston, Tyler Shultz will give attendees an inside look at Theranos and how he was able to sound the alarm after he realized the company was falling apart. Shultz will take attendees behind the story that everyone is talking about: the rise and fall of Elizabeth Holmes and her diagnostic company, Theranos.
Join Shultz and 1,000+ medical device professionals at the 8th annual DeviceTalks Boston.
