Imagine if doctors could perform surgery without ever having to cut through your skin. Or if they could diagnose cancer by seeing tumors inside the body with a procedure that is as simple as an ultrasound. Thanks to a technique developed by engineers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), all of that may be possible in the not-so-distant future.
Researchers in Finland and Germany have developed an open-source software that will make it significantly easier to process bioimaging data. The software, named BioImageXD, will help in analysing cell and tissue functions.
Researchers at the University of Michigan have found that the Apple iPad 2 can interfere with settings of magnetically programmable shunt devices, which are often used to treat children with hydrocephalus.

The intelligent Ethernet system MSX-E3121 is meant for the acquisition and output of analog and digital signals in a harsh environment. It has 6 differential inputs, 24-bit, 4 analog outputs, 16-bit, and 32 digital I/O, 24 V
MEMSIC Inc. announced the availability of the MFA1100R gas flow sensor module. MEMSIC’s monolithic thermal technology, based on the same approach used in its highly successful accelerometer products, uses a precise differential temperature measurement to determine flow rate.
Gallium nitride (GaN) is a highly promising material for a wide range of optical and high-power electronic devices, which can be fabricated by dry etching with plasmas. However, the plasma-induced defects and surface residues that remain after such processes tend to degrade the optical and electrical properties of the devices. A team of Japanese researchers has developed and tested a new way to "heal" such defects.
