New AI Algorithm Makes Liver Cancer Surgery Safer

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Medical Image Computing MEVIS have developed algorithms that analyze patients’ imaging data and calculate surgical risks, making liver cancer surgery safer and easier to plan. Researchers at Fraunhofer have been working on image-processing algorithms for use in medicine since 1998. The method is now widely known among physicians as MEVIS analysis and has become established in practice. More...

Global Radiation Detection Market to Reach USD 2 Billion by 2022

The global radiation detection, monitoring, and safety market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.7% from USD 1.71 billion in 2017 to USD 2.26 billion by 2022. The market is likely to be driven by rising security threats, increasing prevalence of cancer across the world, growing safety awareness among people working in radiation-prone environments, rising safety concerns following the Fukushima disaster, expanding security budgets of global sporting events, increase in the number of PET/CT scans, growing usage of nuclear medicine and radiation therapy for diagnosis and treatment, and use of drones for radiation monitoring. However, nuclear energy alternatives such as renewable energy, nuclear power phase-out, and shortage of nuclear power workforce, are likely to limit the market growth. More...
