Researches from the University of Birmingham and University of Edinburgh have cut the number of liver biopsies performed on patients with fatty liver in half by using a non-invasive digital image scan. Findings were published in Alimentary Pharmacology & Therapeutics.

Measurements taken from projected 3D holographic models were able to match “gold standard” measurements in accuracy, according to a study set to be presented at the ARRS 2018 Annual Meeting.

Smart glasses could be a feasible tool in detecting concussions and improving critical decision making, according to a study published in JMIR mHealth and uHealth.

A genetic ancestry test was more accurate than conventional self-reports of race, cultural identity or ethnicity at identifying patients at risk for bleeding stoke. Findings were presented at the American Stroke Association's International Stroke Conference 2018.
 

An emergency department (ED)-based transitional care nurse (TCN) program, focusing on geriatric care, was able to reduce the number of unnecessary hospitalizations by 33 percent. Findings were published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society.
