Research is providing the data needed to help Europe transition towards more sustainable plant protein production. The EU-funded Legumes Translated project is gathering that knowledge and turning it into practical action.
By creating an ecosystem of different species of marine life, researchers aim to help reduce aquaculture’s environmental impact while also increasing productivity.
According to the CDC, cigarette smoking is responsible for as much as 90% of lung cancer deaths in the U.S. As such, it should come as no surprise that the best way to prevent lung cancer is to not smoke or, if you do, to quit. But what about the use of e-cigarettes, or vaping — particularly by former smokers?
According to a recent European Radiology study, the use of short-protocol brain MRI on emergency patients with inconclusive neurological symptoms is a cost-effective method for detecting minor strokes.
The use of e-cigarettes, also known as vaping, has risen over the past decade. In 2019, an illness linked to vaping was discovered following an outbreak of unexplained respiratory illnesses in Wisconsin. According to a Chest Journal study, vaping induced lung injury, which came to be known as e-cigarette or vaping-induced lung injury (EVALI), hospitalized 2,807 and killed 68 people between March 2019 and February 2020.
To advance the use of AI in the manufacturing sector, the EU-Japan.AI project is supporting greater collaboration between East and West.
New research shows the important role mathematical modelling tools can play in understanding how COVID-19 spreads – and mitigating its effects.
Before algorithms can be used in critical operations like air traffic control, human users must be able to trust them. Explanations, called certificates, on why an algorithm’s output is correct, could serve as a foundation for building this trust.
Since 2004, the CT Clinical Innovation Center (CT CIC) has been integrating clinical practice and innovation with research on a day-to-day basis.
In the summer of 2020, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and multiple incidents of police brutality against African Americans converged to shift the national narrative on racial justice. Included in this conversation was a new look at how health care disparities based on race and ethnicity affect population health.
It’s been said that cybersecurity represents the greatest threat to every sector in the world — and radiology is no exception. Yet most of us probably don’t give it a second thought, seeing it as a problem for multinational companies or an issue for the IT department to take care of. But this is a dangerous misconception.
