With Small Camera, Big Potential Predicting Future Heart Attacks. Inserting a camera into the human body, to look around for trouble, used to be the thing of science fiction.

With Small Camera, Big Potential Predicting Future Heart Attacks

But as well all know full well, today millions of Americans visit doctor's offices annually to have a colonoscopy performed. It's become routine, and the cancer-spotting procedure saves lives. Now instead of envisioning a camera that fits inside a colon, imagine one that can slide and peer through a blood vessel. While you're imagining that, researchers in Michigan are currently experimenting with this new technology that may someday be able to predict a stroke or heart attack before it occurs. A team of doctors at Michigan Medicine, the medical school at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, are using an incredibly small camera – it's called a scanning fiber endoscope, or SFE – to improve the view inside blood vessels and the carotid artery. "The camera actually goes inside the vessels. OncoStats. Untitled. Untitled. CVLab – Cardiovascular Laboratory.

Blockchain Smart Contracts: A Hyper-Deflationary Force for Health Care Delivery

From distributed interoperable health records to proof of adherence for medication, the healthcare industry is ripe for digital innovation. More generally, technology is a hyper-deflationary force, and this could be particularly effective in delivering quality health care through more effective channels such as mobile apps. Investments in the digital health space have increased significantly in the past two years. This is largely possible because of improved low-power sensors and user-friendly cloud platforms that interface with those hardware devices. Personal BlackBox Company, PBC.

Exponential Medicine: Health Data Discomfort? Blockchain Is the Cure

Your genome will be sequenced; the bacterial demography of your gut polled, your steps tracked, your calories counted, and your brainwaves monitored. All this will be digitally analyzed and stored somewhere “out there” on a bank of servers. Your health will depend on which information you surrender in return for the ability to diagnose and defeat cancer at stage 0, knock out genetic conditions, preempt diabetes or heart disease—even become more self aware to improve your mood. Freely sharing our most intimate health details may feel more than a little uncomfortable. Blockchain Health - Remunerative Health Data Commons & HealthCoin RFPs.
