A Working 3D Model Made From 3D Printing. Additive manufacturing or 3D printing as it more commonly called, is thought to be a disruptive technology. This sounds like a bad thing and maybe it is if you are heavily vested in something that it will eventually replace. However when it comes to medical applications for […]

New Research into Automating Patient Monitoring. Hospitalized patients can deteriorate quickly, requiring prompt identification and treatment, especially since each hour of treatment delay can increase the risk of mortality. In a new study published in the American Journal of Medicine, researchers have implemented an automated process that continuously samples electronic medical record (EMR) data in real […]

Biomedical Research & Security Applications. From visible light to radio waves, most people are familiar with the different sections of the electromagnetic spectrum. But one wavelength is often forgotten, little understood, and, until recently, rarely studied. It’s called terahertz, and it has important applications in imaging and communications.
