GE Healthcare’s newly integrated deep learning solution will improve accuracy for radiation oncology treatment

US – GE Healthcare will integrate Spectronic Medical AB’s, a Swedish based med tech company, AI-based software into AIR Recon Deep Learning (DL) technology in a bid to improve cancer treatment with precise planning. This AI solution, in combination with GE Healthcare’s industry leading AIR Recon DL technology, enables MR-only based radiotherapy planning for better soft tissue differentiation than traditional CT, so clinicians can better direct radiotherapy. The solution will provide high quality images to precisely target lesions while sparing healthy tissue that around 60% of cancer patients need in…

Breakthrough as Uppsala University discover structures in brain cancer patients found to help fight tumors

SWEDEN – Researchers at Uppsala University have discovered lymph node-like structures close to the tumor in brain cancer patients, where immune cells can be activated to attack the tumor. In the study now published in the journal Nature Communications, the researchers describe their discovery of structures similar to lymph nodes in the brain where T lymphocytes(major components of the adaptive immune system that kill infected host cells) could be activated. The research was conducted on glioma- bearing mice and showed that the formation of tertiary lymphoid structures (TLS), ectopic lymphoid…
