New Method Maps Chemicals in the Skin

More and more chemicals are being released into our environment. For example, parabens and phthalates are under discussion as two types of chemicals that can affect us. But so far it has not been possible to find out how they are absorbed by the skin. A new study from Chalmers

Prototype UT Equipment can Detect Rheumatoid Arthritis

Several years ago, researchers from the University of Twente joined forces with a number of companies to develop a prototype for a machine that would combine ultrasound and photoacoustics medical imaging techniques. Combining these techniques allows specialists to create images of superficial areas of the body that can offer doctors

Novel Circuit Design Boosts Wearable Thermoelectric Generators

Because of their symmetrical fractal wiring patterns, the devices can be cut to the size needed to provide the voltage and power requirements for specific applications. The modular generators could be inkjet printed on flexible substrates, including fabric, and manufactured using inexpensive roll-to-roll techniques. "The attraction of thermoelectric generators is that

PET imaging tracks Zika virus infection, disease progression in mouse model

Small-animal imaging has become an important research tool for preclinical studies of infectious diseases, according to senior author Thomas M. Bocan, Ph.D., of the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID). "Traditional methods of infectious disease research using animal models have provided limited information about disease progression until the
