Swedish and Danish researchers found that a deep learning-based algorithm quantifying PET/CT measurements of total prostate lesion uptake and abnormal voxel volume relative to total prostate volume -- but not age, Gleason score and prostate-specific antigen levels -- significantly predicted overall survival among patients with prostate cancer. The findings were published in Clinical Physiology and Functional Imaging.
A study to be published in Theranostics and based on about 26,000 optical tomography images from colorectal tissue samples found that an OCT-based imaging technique paired with deep learning had 100% accuracy in detecting tumors in real time, compared with pathology reports. Researchers also found that the technique had 100% sensitivity and 99.7% specificity in making colorectal cancer diagnoses, compared with using traditional histology.
The voluntary recall of some Medtronic SynchroMed II implantable drug infusion pumps was categorized as a Class I recall by the FDA. The devices were recalled because of a foreign particle that interfered with the gear rotation of the pump, which could cause the device to stall.
