Several Arab countries, especially in the Gulf have announced their support for the event, including Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the UAE. read more

The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) reiterated its “extreme concern” at a recent series of assaults on displaced people and their organizations, including last month’s arson attack that partially destroyed the premises of the League of Displaced Women in Cartagena, one of the agency’s oldest partners in Colombia.“We also request the Colombian Government to continue to increase its efforts to protect displaced people,” UNHCR spokesperson Jennifer Pagonis told a news briefing in Geneva, noting that more than 170,000 people were forcibly displaced last year, according to government figures.Colombia’s displaced make up about 8 per cent of the country’s total population and represent the largest single group of concern to UNHCR anywhere in the world.Last Friday UNHCR joined with more than 130 national and international organizations and the Government to launch the 2007 Campaign for the Rights of Displaced People in Colombia.“While the Government has stepped up its efforts on behalf of displaced people, many still face daily problems with housing, education, health and access to work,” Ms. Pagonis said, noting that they are also at high risk of insecurity and violence.“This year’s campaign starts amid our growing concerns over attacks on displaced people and their organizations. In recent weeks, several leaders of the displaced have been killed, including two in the Atlantic Coast region in the past two weeks,” she added.Last month UNHCR announced that it was opening two more field offices in the country, bringing the total to 12. 6 February 2007The United Nations refugee agency today called on all armed groups in Colombia to respect international humanitarian law and leave civilians out of the more than four-decades-long conflict which has uprooted some 3 million people in fighting between the Government, leftist rebels and right-wing paramilitaries. read more

“The world’s attention is waning at a time when some of the biggest challenges for the relief effort here are still to come,” said Valerie Amos, Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator.“In some parts of Pakistan, a new disaster is happening every few days and millions of people are still waiting for the support they need to survive,” Ms. Amos said when she visited a camp for people displaced by the floods in Nowshera in the north-western Pakistani province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.“Elsewhere, particularly in the north, people affected when the floods started in late July are now looking to us for help to get back on their feet. Making sure the relief effort tackles both is going to be a huge test of our ability to coordinate and work effectively over the coming weeks and months,” Ms. Amos, who arrived in Pakistan on Tuesday, her first day in the job.In Nowshera, she visited the Khandar camp, where nearly 400 families are living in tents and are regularly receiving water, food and other basic necessities. She spoke with female heads of households who described to her the days in late July and early August when walls of water swept through the province, demolishing more than 200,000 houses and affecting over 4.3 million people.One man told Ms. Amos that the water had now receded and that he needed help to go back to his farm before the end of the current crop planting season.“Many of the people I met today want to restart their lives as soon as possible, which is something we absolutely must respond to,” said Ms. Amos. “Giving people what they need to farm again and eventually to rebuild their lives is as much a part of the relief effort as delivering food, water and health care,” she stressed.“But we must not forget that elsewhere in the vast area affected by these floods, there are millions of recently displaced people also suffering and waiting for life-saving assistance,” the Under-Secretary-General added.Floods in Pakistan since late July have already created one of the largest humanitarian crises the UN and its humanitarian partners have ever responded to, and flood waters are still spreading, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), which Ms. Amos heads.Aid agencies have mobilised resources to reach millions of people throughout the 160,000 square kilometres of land affected by the floods. Some UN agencies and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are, however, running out of funds. 9 September 2010The top United Nations humanitarian official today cautioned that the international attention on the devastating flood disaster in Pakistan is dwindling even before the millions of people affected have received adequate relief and others are awaiting assistance to rebuild their lives. read more

20 September 2011United Nations human rights officials today called on Belarus to immediately release all political opponents not involved in violence, voicing concern at a pattern of rights violations involving freedom of speech and assembly and “serious allegations” of torture after last year’s elections. A report presented to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva by Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights Kyung-wha Kang called on Belarus to speedily accept a mission from her office, noting that previous requests for an on-site visit had remained unanswered.The report follows repeated expressions of concern by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and other senior UN officials at violence and the detention and treatment of journalists, opposition candidates and their supporters after President Alyaksandr Lukashenka’s victory in December’s elections, as well as calls for the release of the detainees.Noting that the human rights situation deteriorated significantly after the poll, amid opposition protests that it was neither free nor fair and the results were flawed, the report cites the beating with batons and injuring of many protesters, the vast majority of them peaceful, and bystanders, reports of physical and psychological torture by several defendants and the alleged intimidation of defence lawyers.“The authorities have reportedly tightened their already highly restrictive control of the media since December,” it states, calling on the Government to conduct an objective investigation into the circumstances of the detentions and all reported cases of torture, and to bring the perpetrators to justice.“The authorities have allegedly been conducting a policy of harassment against independent non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and human rights defenders,” it adds, calling for an immediate end to all such acts and forms of political and administrative pressure.The report, which highlights that Belarus is the only country in Europe that still issues death sentences and carries out executions, notes that because of the absence of a UN human rights presence in the country, significant segments of its information come from secondary sources and some of the allegations remain unverified.Belarus’ delegate Mikhail Khvostov said his country disagreed with those such as the European Union on what constituted peaceful demonstrations. The EU considered that the storming of buildings was a peaceful activity, while Belarus considered it to be a criminal activity, he added, stressing Belarus continued to be devoted to its international obligations to protect human rights.A politically motivated approach to countries was not an approach that the Council or the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) should follow, he stressed. read more

UN Spokesman Stephane Dujarric said that this would be done at their cost, as per normal procedures. Army Spokesman Brigadier Sumith Atapattu told The Sunday Morning the Army would recall Lieutenant Colonel Kalana Amunupure as a mark of respect to the order issued by the UN.However, he insisted that the allegations against Lieutenant Colonel Kalana Amunupure were baseless and that the Army would file an appeal with the UN. “We will file the appeal to clear his name as he had served with the UN previously as well. We hope to clear his name and send him back to Mali,” Brigadier Sumith Atapattu said.Lieutenant Colonel Kalana Amunupure was accused of being involved in human rights abuses during the war in Sri Lanka. Lieutenant Colonel Kalana Amunupure commands the Sri Lankan contingent in Mali with Major Hasantha Hennadi as his second-in-command. The Army is to recall a military officer stationed in Mali following a UN demand but will later appeal against the order, The Sunday Morning newspaper reported today.Following a review of the human rights background of the commander of the Sri Lankan contingent deployed to the UN Peacekeeping Mission in Mali, the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA) has requested Sri Lanka to immediately repatriate him to Sri Lanka. read more

Its the night before the municipal election.Mayoral candidates in Burlington were busy campaigning one last time today before the polls open tomorrow and development in the city is the focus.Marianne Meed Ward says the people of Burlington want change.“Residents are saying this is not my vision this is not what I want for the future.”Meed Ward as well as candidates Mike Wallace and incumbent Rick Goldring all say their number one priority is pacing the development and growth of Burlington’s core.“The downtown should belong to everybody. Not just those who can afford to live downtown.”Earlier this year the city of Burlington released its official plan; a document required by the province that outlines what a city needs to grow. It could be anything from new housing to anticipated needs for infrastructure and shops.Meed Ward says the official plan gives developers too much lee way and fears the downtown core will become saturated with condos.“There are up to 30 more high rises that would be allowed in the downtown according to our new official plan and that’s the first thing I’d like to work with a new council to change.”Goldring, who suggested annexing Waterdown, says if re-elected he wants to work with the province so that municipalities can have more control over growth policy and implementation. He says his plan differs from Meed Ward’s and Wallace’s.“I suggest we need to create a Burlington community lands corporation to buy strategic land of interest in the downtown and other areas of the city to make sure we can protect certain cites and facilitate development the way the community wants.”Wallace says his background in federal politics has helped him build relationships that could help change the official plan with the province.“The places to grow act to be changed to allow us to control our own vision of the growth of Burlington. Which means working with the province to change the urban growth centre out of downtown Burlington and the mobility hub that is designated for downtown Burlington.The other Burlington mayoral candidate, Greg Woodruff did not return our calls for an interview.Other hot topics the mayoral candidates say are top of mind include better transit and reducing traffic in the city, as well as affordable housing. read more

In a letter addressed to the Heads of State or Government and Foreign Ministers who are expected to attend the General Assembly later this month, Mr. Annan invited countries that have not already ratified or acceded to the Convention to do so at a high-level treaty event that will take place at UN Headquarters in New York from 23 to 26 September, concurrent with the Assembly’s general debate.As of yesterday, the Convention, adopted in 1994 after an increase in the number of attacks on personnel working in UN operations worldwide, had 66 States parties. Efforts are continuing to ensure that all States that have significant numbers of UN or associated personnel will accede to it.The instrument provides a framework of internationally accepted rules that criminalize attacks on UN and humanitarian personnel. It also imposes legal obligations on States parties to take appropriate measures to ensure the safety and security of such workers.Though UN staff have been targeted before, last month’s attack on the world body’s Baghdad headquarters – which left 22 people dead and at least 100 others wounded – was the most deliberate and devastating.The Security Council denounced the “criminal terrorist attack” as an assault on “the international community as a whole” and quickly passed a resolution reaffirming the obligation of all parties involved in armed conflict to comply fully with the rules and principles of international law “related to the protection of humanitarian personnel and United Nations and its associated personnel, in particular, international humanitarian law, human rights law and refugee law.” read more

“Ensuring Africa’s development should be a strategic task for the entire United Nations system,” President Vuk Jeremic said in his opening remarks to the Assembly’s discussion of the world body’s engagement with the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD).The NEPAD initiative of the African Union (AU) was adopted in 2001, with the continent’s leaders pledging to pursue new priorities and approaches for the political and socio-economic transformation of Africa. The programme is intended to accelerate Africans’ efforts to extricate the continent from underdevelopment and exclusion from the global economy.“To bridge the gap between the promise of Africa and the reality on the ground, I believe the United Nations must continue to give priority to the continent’s singular needs,” said Mr. Jeremic. “The UN’s agencies, programmes and entities need to become engaged as never before in the task of supporting African nations to unlock their potential.” In a report on NEPAD, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon noted that African countries have made good progress in the implementation of NEPAD sectoral priorities, in particular in the areas of governance, infrastructure, information and communications technology and agriculture, while progress has been made by the international community in providing debt relief, official development assistance and aid for trade. “In an uncertain and slow global recovery, the main challenge for African countries is to consolidate their gains and thereby ensure that the current turbulent economic situation does not reverse the progress made,” he wrote.As the second decade of NEPAD begins, African countries and the international community, including the United Nations, should strengthen their partnership for development on the basis of mutual responsibility and accountability, the Secretary-General said.In addition, the UN should continue to accord priority to the special development needs of Africa, particularly in the global development agenda beyond 2015, the target date for the achievement of the anti-poverty targets known as the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), as well as the follow-up to the outcomes of the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20), held in Brazil in June. In his remarks to the Assembly, Mr. Jeremic noted that a number of African countries are the hardest-hit victims of the global economic crisis. “Despite this troubling reality, growth rates in many parts of the continent have been resilient. Over the past several years, trade and investment has expanded, the continental-wide internal market has been built up, and macro-economic indicators have improved. By any measure, this progress is remarkable and unprecedented,” he stated.“Yet much more needs to be done in a number of areas. This includes finding solutions on how to lessen the difference in living standards between urban and rural populations, and properly addressing the increasing disparities amongst the continent’s economies.”He added that to be even more effective, the various assistance mechanisms should more closely reflect NEPAD’s agenda, and that of the individual African Member States. “The voices of those in need must be heard loud and clear. What they say has to serve as a significant guidepost for moving forward,” he said. read more

first_imgAfter WWDC last week the Apple rumors have died down a bit, but never fear, there’s a new one today that seems to confirm updates to Apple’s Time Capsule and AirPort Extreme. The fourth-generation Time Capsule and fifth-generation AirPort Extreme were both spotted in the most recent source code for an AirPort security update.Apple released its AirPort Utility 5.5.3 update on Monday, and the device listings were found in the code. The code alludes to a 5th-gen AirPort Extreme Base Station with 802.11n capability and a 4th-gen Time Capsule with the same.The code also hints at caching, which means that the devices would have the ability to download software updates in the background and then apply them when you check in the device. Apparently, the new Time Capsule actually learns which devices connect to it via WiFi, then it downloads the software updates from Apple’s servers for those products as they are available. The Time Capsule stores the update locally so when you want to install the update, you can simply grab it from the Time Capsule.Though it’s not the most exciting feature in the world, it’ll definitely mean less time spent updating. However, MacRumors has reported that the same text has been found in older versions of the software, so it’s not necessarily new. Apple may have just been waiting until it launched its iCloud service to make this feature available.Apple’s supply of AirPort and Time Capsules are rumored to be running out at Apple’s brick-and-mortar store, so we may be seeing the new Time Capsule and AirPort Extremes soon.Via 9to5Mac, MacRumorslast_img read more

first_imgLa plante de la tequila ravigote le biocarburantCultivée au Mexique, la plante servant à la fabrication de la tequila pourrait réunir les conditions nécessaires afin de produire du biocarburant, d’après une étude parue dans le journal Energy and Environmental Science.L’agave, une plante du désert mexicain, habituellement utilisée dans la culture de production de tequila, pourrait s’avérer très utile dans la production de biocarburant. C’est ce qu’a montré une étude parue dans le journal Energy and environmental science.En effet, selon le chercheur Yan Xiaoyu et ses collègues, les propriétés de cette plante font d’elle une candidate idéale pour l’industrie des biocarburants, notamment grâce au fait qu’elle pousse sur des terres désertiques et qu’elle ne nuit pas à l’alimentation humaine. De plus, l’agave contient beaucoup de sucre qui est habituellement transformé en alcool. Mais ce sucre peut également être converti en carburant, comme l’ont démontré les chercheurs. Un processus semblable à celui qui est déjà utilisé pour la canne à sucre ou le maïs. Pour connaitre les performances de la plante, les scientifiques ont alors testé son cycle de vie complet, aboutissant à des résultats plutôt intéressants. Le carburant à base d’agave émet seulement 35 grammes de CO2 par mégajoule d’énergie produite, alors que le carburant issu du maïs en produit 85 grammes, rapporte 20 avantages non négligeables Malgré ces résultats, c’est tout de même le carburant issu de la canne à sucre qui détient le record avec moins de 20 grammes de CO2 émis. Néanmoins, l’agave présente l’avantage de nécessiter peu d’eau et de s’adapter plus facilement au changement climatique. “Dans un monde où les surfaces cultivables et les ressources en eau sont de plus en plus rares, c’est un argument majeur dans l’arbitrage entre nourriture et carburant”, explique Andrew Smith, scientifique à l’université d’Oxford qui a participé aux travaux. À lire aussiContemplez en accéléré la fantastique floraison de ces cactusPour la suite, bien que des essais aient déjà été menés en Australie, les chercheurs estiment que c’est au Mexique et en Afrique qu’une telle culture gagnerait à être produite. Jusque dans les années 1970, la plante y était cultivée pour sa fibre aux multiples utilisations. Les cultures pourraient donc reprendre du service pour fournir du carburant.L’agave n’est pas la panacée : agir de tous les côtés Si les résultats de l’étude se sont avérés concluants, les scientifiques sont bien conscients que l’agave n’est pas non plus la solution au problème. Ainsi, Oliver Inderwildi, responsable des programmes de mobilité durable à l’université d’Oxford, reconnait que, certes les biocarburants peuvent jouer un rôle crucial dans la réduction des émissions provenant des transports, mais il souligne le besoin de diminuer la demande en énergie : “les biocarburants ne seront pas suffisants si l’on opère pas une réduction de la demande, étant donné qu’il n’y aura pas assez de terres à la fois pour l’agriculture et pour la production de biocarburant”. Il explique également au Guardian que la solution provient plutôt de moteurs au meilleur rendement mais aussi de voitures électriques, indiquant pour l’exemple que “nous n’allons pas pouvoir alimenter tous les transports américains en biocarburant”.Le 31 juillet 2011 à 15:59 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

first_imgRoad Accident LogoA car drove onto a sidewalk in southwest China on Tuesday, killing seven people and injuring another four, police said, days after another driver deliberately rammed into schoolchildren in the country’s northeast.The driver has been detained and the cause of the incident in Leshan, a city in Sichuan province, is under investigation, police said in a statement.The injured have been taken to hospital for treatment, the statement said.According to official news agency Xinhua, the vehicle rushed onto the sidewalk and hit a bus stop in the morning.The crash came just five days after a driver hit a group of schoolchildren crossing the street in Huludao, a city in northeast Liaoning province.Five children were killed and another 19 were injured after the driver “chose his victims at random”, according to Xinhua, which cited police.The driver, a 29-year-old unemployed Liaoning resident, was contemplating suicide “due to quarrels” with his spouse before he drove his car into the children, Xinhua reported on Friday.Deadly road accidents are common in China, where traffic regulations are often flouted or go unenforced.According to authorities 58,000 people were killed in accidents across the country in 2015 alone.Violations of traffic laws were blamed for nearly 90 per cent of accidents that caused deaths or injuries that year.Earlier this month, at least 13 people died when a bus plunged off a bridge in Chongqing municipality, after the driver got into a fist fight with a passenger who had missed her bus stop.Search and rescue teams dispatched more than 70 boats, as well as a team of scuba divers and underwater robots, to find the wreckage and retrieve bodies from the water.In September, 11 people died and dozens were injured when a car struck a crowd in a public square in the central Hunan province city of Hengdong.Police detained the driver, a man in his 40s, and described him as a “vengeful repeat offender” who had daggers in his car and intended to “cause serious damage”.In February, a van packed with pressurised gas tanks and petrol-filled bottles caught fire and ploughed into pedestrians in Shanghai, leaving at least 18 people injured.Authorities concluded that it had been a “traffic accident”.But a 2013 incident was blamed on militant separatists.Two tourists were killed at the time when a car rammed into bystanders in Beijing’s iconic Tiananmen Square before bursting into flames.Three attackers also died in the incident, which Beijing blamed on separatists from the restive western region of Xinjiang.last_img read more

first_img(Credit: Gudkov Andrey/Shutterstock)Seeing anyone special? Thinking about having kids? When am I going to have some grandchildren?Many moms nag their adult children about the prospect of grandchildren. But bonobo moms take their maternal harassment to another level: They actively participate in helping their sons find mates.Even more surprisingly, the pushy tactic gets results. The sons of overbearing mothers are more likely to father offspring, says a group of researchers.“This is the first time that we can show the impact of the mother’s presence on a very important male fitness trait, which is their fertility,” Martin Surbeck, a primatologist at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany, said in a press statement. “We were surprised to see that the mothers have such a strong, direct influence on the number of grandchildren they get.”Mama’s BoyBonobos are slender apes that live in groups of about a dozen in the lowland rainforests of the Congo Basin. Females and their young form the core of most groups. Males, even as adults, tend to stick with their mother’s group. “In bonobo social systems, the daughters disperse from the native community and the sons stay,” Surbeck explained. “And for the few daughters that stay in the community, which we don’t have many examples of, we don’t see them receiving any help from their mothers.”Sons, on the other hand, are coddled. Bonobo moms will make sure their sons attain good social standing, for example. And when it comes to mating, the mothers are on hand as well. In previous research, Surbeck and colleagues found bonobo moms make sure their sons are close to fertile females. The moms will even confront males that try to interrupt their sons’ mating attempts.Sire SuccessIn the new study, the researchers combined genetic and demographic data from previous studies where they observed four wild bonobo communities. The analysis, which included paternity tests, revealed bonobo males living in a group with their moms were three times more likely to have kids than males living in groups without their mother’s presence, the team reports Monday in the journal Current Biology. Over the course of the research, about three-quarters of offspring were sired in the mom’s presence.Why bonobo mothers are so assertive in helping their sons procreate is still unknown, but the researchers suspect moms are trying to ensure the continuation of their family tree. “These females have found a way to increase their reproductive success without having more offspring themselves,” Surbeck said.last_img read more

first_imgQ: Are there other features that you have found valuable? A: Yes, there are a number of valuable features. The ability to move the study prioritization model to the administrative level is an important feature. In the past, radiologists were allowed to decide how they would set up their individual worklists. This has caused problems making sure urgent cases are read in a timely manner. Now, using the flexible rules engine provided in our workflow intelligence solution, I (as the chairman) am able to decide how cases are prioritized and thus the order in which the cases are read.There is an added benefit to the radiologists who do not frequently come to the hospital. In the past they have struggled to remember workflows and prioritization models, but now rely on the system to organize their reading priority for them. This helps us stay compliant with our service agreements with the hospital. Additionally, with workflow intelligence (WI) our staff no longer wastes valuable time searching through numerous worklists, trying to locate urgent cases. Now the workflow intelligence solution advises them if a case is at risk to miss a read time requirement so they can then take appropriate action. Notification can come via pop-up alert, e-mail and even SMS text message. The notification process also has an escalation model that includes radiologists and support staff.With workflow intelligence we are able to help ICU discharge patients faster. By putting the ICU studies at the top of the worklist, the radiologists can read the studies sooner and free up the ICU beds faster. The system also allows manual prioritization if a patient is waiting to be discharged and needs a priority reading.   Q: What trends are you experiencing with respect to quality initiatives? A: At Nyack, as at other hospitals, there is the trend to improve quality processes, workflow and reporting. As such, we have designed a number of workflows with specific metrics to be met. In some cases the metrics are then reported to the government. Here are some examples: • Read stroke cases within 30 minutes;• Get studies out more efficiently to help decrease the length of patient stay in the hospital; and• Improve the report turnaround time for emergency cases through identification and prioritization.

Its mission is to provide competent, innovative and accessible emergency and acute care services to the residents of Rockland County and surrounding areas. Aa a partner with Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine, it provides clinical rotations to medical students. In this article, we discuss the importance of quality workflows with Evan Kaminer, M.D., chairman of radiology at Nyack Hospital. Workflows and processes such as these have a real impact to the patient and to the hospital.  Evan Kaminer, M.D. (Photo courtesy of Shay Frey) Evan Kaminer, M.D., and Freddie Adorno, Nyack’s manager of enterprise imaging informatics, collaborating on an Intelligent Worklist. (Photo courtesy of Shay Frey) Q: What is a specific feature that has been most important to the workflow?  A: Our greatest challenge was flagging the emergent and urgent cases. Like many hospitals, we are flooded with cases marked STAT. For example, every study done in the emergency room is marked STAT, even if the case has been reviewed by the ER physician or over-night radiologist. The technologists had a manual process for identifying high-priority cases, but the process was time-consuming and prone to error. Our workflow intelligence solution has automated this process by integrating information about the patient’s location, exam type, ordered priority and time of day to assign a priority number. The highest priority cases are read first.  However, priority is not static. There is an escalation model and a de-escalation model, which allows for change as new data is received. Studies can increase in priority if not read in preprogrammed times. They can decrease in priority if a preliminary report is generated.

However, from my point of view I measure success by the exceptions. It’s the cases that we fail to read in a timely manner that cause me the greatest distress. It only takes one delayed reading with a bad outcome to lead to a disaster. While we focus on metrics and policies, ultimately we’re dealing with people’s lives. Case study supplied by McKesson Corp.

We have private offices with a PACS from a different vendor. In the hospital there are two reading workstations placed side-by-side but not integrated.  Related Content Q: Can you describe the difference in your workflow prior to and after the implementation of the workflow intelligence solution?A: There are so many different facets to it. The system can touch so many different aspects in a workflow that it’s hard to encompass it all into one statement. From the radiologist’s perspective, we moved away from filtered and sorted lists into an intelligent list. In the past we had several filtered lists that we sorted so that the cases were read in the best order. Now workflow intelligence determines the order using rules that we can modify over time. I no longer have to move around lists trying to make sure cases are read in the optimal order. I have one list that I create at the start of the day and WI prioritizes it for me. The biggest difference, however, is that the system will notify me and my partners if a case is missed, allowing us to jump on the error pospectively rather than in a Root Cause Analysis meeting weeks later.

Utilizing miniaturized sensors located on a core needle, Smart Biopsy generated, in real time, electrical parameters of the sampled tissue. These electrical parameters will be compared to histopathologic findings in order to provide additional value with regard to improving diagnosis and read-out.The Smart Biopsy device represents a significant breakthrough in Dune Medical’s quest to offer real-time, multi-cancer, diagnostic and treatment applications, according to the company. Dune Medical’s RF Spectroscopy and its miniaturized sensor technology provide an accurate interpretation of electrical parameters which correlate to tissue type, and most importantly, to the differentiation between cancer and healthy tissue. Identifying tissue properties during the biopsy procedure enables the physician to enhance their diagnostic capability beyond just image guidance, potentially preventing patients the anxiety of an underdiagnosis or an overdiagnosis.The development of the Smart Biopsy Device was supported by the European Union Horizon 2020 research grant that Dune Medical received in 2016.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | CT Angiography (CTA) | August 06, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Improves Heart Attack Risk Assessment When used with a common heart scan, machine learning, a type of artificial intelligence (AI), does better than… read more News | Colonoscopy Systems | August 06, 2019 Rise in Early Onset Colorectal Cancer Not Aligned With Screening Trends A new study finds that trends in colonoscopy rates did not fully align with the increase in colorectal cancer (CRC) in… read more News | Radiation Therapy | August 15, 2019 First Patient Enrolled in World’s Largest Brain Cancer Clinical Trial Henry Ford Cancer Institute is first-in-the-world to enroll a glioblastoma patient in the GBM AGILE Trial (Adaptive… read more News | Artificial Intelligence | July 31, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Solution Improves Clinical Trial Recruitment Clinical trials are a critical tool for getting new treatments to people who need them, but research shows that… read morelast_img read more
