If the mosquitos in a given area are carrying a potentially lethal virus, then the sooner that local health authorities know about it, the better. According to new research, traps that collect the insects' liquid waste may allow that to happen – and cheaply, too...

A team of scientists have solved the mystery of the strange Parkinson's disease odor, revealing a number of skin-secreted volatile biomarkers can be detected in patients suffering from the disease. The next step for the research is to turn this discovery into an early-detection tool... Continue Reading Smell of Parkinson’s finally identified, early detection test on the way Category: Medi
X-rays and MRIs can be very effective ways to detect breast cancer in its early stages, but given the commonness of the disease scientists are always looking at ways to improve diagnostic methods any way they can. Researchers in Vienna are making some promising progress in this area, developing a new method that revolves around a waistcoat packed with flexible radio frequency coils... Cont
The earlier cancer is detected, the better the odds of treating it. But of course tumors can be hard to spot until they get to a certain size, at which point it might be too late. Now MIT researchers have developed a new optical imaging system that could be used to spot tiny tumors deep inside the body...

At its X-Summit event in Dubai, Fujifilm announced a major firmware update for the X-T3, coming in April. Firmware 3.0 will bring improvements to Eye-AF, and should provide faster AF tracking performance and face detection. Face selection will be added, and 'touch operability' will also be improved.You can see a preview of the changes in the video above, which will start playing at the relevant p
Although there already are methods of determining if someone has an infection, those methods have their limitations. Scientists from the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) have developed what they believe is a better technique, which incorporates electrochemistry...

Dual-camera equipped devices have really been taking off this year, and with the Mi 6X, Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi has just thrown its hat into the dual-cam ring as well. As has been the norm with virtually all recent device launches, Xiaomi is putting a lot of emphasis on the Mi 6X camera capabilities: claiming the new model competes with rivals such as the iPhone X or OPPO R15 in the imaging d
Centrica Hive Limited, part of British Gas’ parent company, has announced a new addition to its product family. The Hive Hub 360 is a wireless hub that connects Hive devices together and can be used to detect important sounds in the home.   Described as the most advanced Hive Hub yet, it combines powerful connectivity with 360-degree audio […]The post Hive launches
A team of Australian scientists has uncovered a novel molecular signature for an aggressive type of adenocarcinomas, a form of lung cancer. These cancers were also found to produce specific metabolites that can potentially be identified in plasma samples, raising hopes that a diagnostic blood test for this condition can be developed in the future...Continue Reading Lung cancer biomarker disco
