With the many exceptional things happening in the scientific research and tech worlds, it is hard to choose which to talk about. Apart from the broad aspects of technological development, listed here are some of the ongoing developments in science and technology of the advanced materials that are worth keeping your eyes on to gaze at.
Stem Cell Heart Generation
Initially, a human heart has been created using control cells, a significant step ahead in organ production. A couple of years ago experts rebuilt the heart of a rat using control cells; the same team is the latest breakthrough. If all moves as planned, the cardiovascular system will always grow and eventually get started beating automatically. The implications of the development are huge, including beating the problems of re-planting donated hearts.
Hybrid MRI / PET Imaging
Positron emission tomography, magnetic resonance imaging scanning could supply the broadest spectrum of analysis possible, at least by current-tech standards. MRI is particularly useful for examining smooth tissues in the body, and when combined with PET (which is better at formative evaluation) it provides incredibly detailed image resolution of organ tissue. The duo works especially well in evaluating the actual level of liver damage, as one example, without contact with high levels of the radiation. The issue is that these technologies don’t play well collectively, so integrating them is no small challenge.
Scientists have developed the equivalent of a rechargeable lithium-ion battery the size of a nanowire, a large number of times smaller than a human hair. Unlike previous nanobatteries, this one is built in a nanowire. This infinitesimal power source provides nanomachines with the continuous power needed to attain whatever uses they’re designed for, such as discovering the cardiovascular system of a cardiovascular disease patient.
