The proposed approach to the problem of safe operation of devices is fundamentally different from the solutions which are currently used in industrial practice. Currently, the supervision of these objects is based mainly on standard non-destructive testing methods. The main limitation of used methods is the lack of the possibility of both examining the object in its entire volume and testing the device in working conditions. Developed algorithm allows to effectively solve current problems in the diagnosis of chemical installations related to the assessment of their technical condition and determination of the conditions for further operation in real time. The algorithm is particularly recommended for monitoring devices in which adverse damages occur due to the long-term operation.

By a new ionophore incorporated into a polymeric membrane that allows screening creatinine real samples. The use of said ionophore in the polymer membrane solve the selectivity problem found in other methods.

The model assesses the performance of a trainee registrar before, during, and after training using the ultrasound imaging phantom which is a realistic representation of the breast.
RAMOT at Tel Aviv University Ltd. posted this:System for Automatic Pathology Detection & Categorization in Chest Radiographsmethods to provide automated segmentation of lesions and tumors, with minimal user interaction; the computerized algorithms will enable a reproducible measure, which is one of the most critical criteria for measurement; in addition, automated tracking over time will be developed. Given a new case, automated tools will enable the extraction of a previous case of the patient, based on which the current case can be analyzed more in context, and the abnormalities can be more accurately detected, segmented and measured.

RAMOT at Tel Aviv University Ltd. posted this:Iron oxide nanoparticles (IOP) for the treatment of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and other inflammatory conditionsA novel approach for the treatment of AMI has been developed using IOPs. IOPs, when injected into the infarcted myocardium, lead to improved heart function after MI. IOPs activate anti-inflammatory macrophages and thus promote tissue healing and repair and prevent myocardial remodeling and dysfunction. Potential Applications IOPs can be used to treat AMI and other inflammatory conditions associated with pro-inflammatory activated macrophages and to promote tissue healing and repair. Advantages ? IOPs are nontoxic ? IOPs are FDA approved for use in humans for MRI imaging Stage In vivo studies in mouse and rat models of MI and heart failure Project ID : 10-2011-247
