Connective Tissue Substitutes, Method of Preparation and Uses

Laval University

DescriptionThe rupture of an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) of the knee joint is a frequent trauma, particularly during the practice of various sports such as ski, snowboard, soccer or hockey.The therapeutic options for ACL replacement include: synthetic prostheses allografts (ACL excised from cadavers) et natural autografts (central portion of the patellar tendon or hamstring tendon of the patient). Synthetic prostheses have shown many problems that include long-term failure due...

MRgRT MAGNET

University Health Network

Low-cost reduced field-of-view MR system for MRgRT Physicists at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre’s Radiation Medicine Program have developed a new MR magnet and coil configuration which is intended to significantly simplify, and reduce the cost of LINAC-based MR-guided radiation therapy (MRgRT) systems. The configuration uses a fringe-field magnet design producing a reduced imaging field-of-view optimized for patient set-up and real-time tumor tracking applications. The optimized design is...

Soiled Airway Trainer, Tech ID # 1284.1

University of Calgary

Approximately twenty-five per cent of pre-hospital trauma cases require airway management by emergency response personnel, and delays in proper airway management are a common cause of preventable death in pre-hospital and emergency settings. If performed improperly, airway management procedures can cause secondary injuries to patients. Training emergency personnel to effectively manage a patient's airway is vital for patient safety and optimal treatment conditions.

Enhancing Mesenchymal Stem Cell Efficacy For Cell Therapy

University Health Network

A novel method to manufacture high quality cost effective mesenchymal stem cells for clinical applications A transiently physical culture condition in the presence of a proprietary cytokine/small molecule cocktail activates MSCs that have already been expanded to be more anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor and immunomodulatory. This method can be applied to MCB/WCBs to prepare activated cryopreserved MSC product cell banks which retain their activity, post thaw. This method can also be applied...

Multimedia CD-ROM: Extra and intra oral examination

Laval University

DescriptionAuthored by two experienced oral medicine specialists, these two CD-ROM include 23 live video sequences illustrating the methodology for the examination of all extra and intra oral structures. A menu bar on the master screen allows to select the anatomical structure and then choose from four sub-headings, that is the examination technique, anatomical landmarks, normal appearance and abnormalities. For a given structure, the abnormalities are listed by their main clinical features...

EVOQ

University Health Network

Automated quality assurance software for radiation therapy plans. A team of scientists from UHN’s Techna Institute and Radiation Medicine Program at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre have developed a web-based DICOM-RT tool that provides visualization and automatic quality review of Radiation Therapy (RT) plans. The tool includes i) comprehensive workflow for the quality assurance RT process, ii) fully capable DICOM-RT visualization, and iii) automated quality assurance analysis for...

P2K - Pattern to Knowledge, AI software for deep knowledge discovery from sequence and relational data

University of Waterloo

Background The functional relationships within living systems are very complex due to wide range of interrelated and intertwining factors. Thus functional associations are often masked at the data level due to these hidden entangled factors. This is a specific problem related to relational data sets in the bioinformatics (e.g. bio-sequence interpretation) but also exists in other areas such as healthcare and cybersecurity. There is a need to both discover and  disentangle...
