Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation Simulation Model

Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation Simulation Model


PolyU researchers have jointly developed a Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation Simulation Model in collaboration with Queen Elizabeth Hospital that accommodates patient specific 3D printed blood vessels and aortic valves for surgeons to simulate aortic valve repair.

Intelligent system for speedy diagnosis of strokes

Intelligent system for speedy diagnosis of strokes


Combining artificial intelligence, pathology and a sophisticated algorithm, the computer intelligence system for acute stroke detection can diagnose strokes in three minutes via multiple X-ray images, allowing physicians to quickly detect dangerous but subtle changes in the brain.

Scolioscan for radiation-free spine screening

Scolioscan for radiation-free spine screening


Scolioscan is a radiation-free measurement system for accurately screening and monitoring scoliosis of the spine. Developed using 3D ultrasound imaging techniques, its measurement results are comparable to those of conventional X-ray assessments.

DISC lens to slow myopia progression

DISC lens to slow myopia progression


The Defocus Incorporated Soft Contact (DISC) Lens allows an image to be produced on the retina and then another to generate a defocus that balances out the negative effects of extensive close-up work. DISC Lens helps to stop excessive growth of eyeball length that causes myopia.

Highly sensitive biosensor measures glucose level in saliva

Highly sensitive biosensor measures glucose level in saliva


Glucose levels in saliva can now be measured more conveniently, safely and inexpensively, thanks to an ultra-sensitive transistor-based biosensor developed at PolyU that is nearly a thousand times more sensitive than a traditional device.
