Digital technology permeates our lives. Smartphones that operate like mini-computers give us easy access to email, news, bank accounts and social networking apps. Even our well-being is in the game: Many of us use digital devices and apps to track our movement, sleep, blood sugar levels or heart rates. At Stanford Medicine, that’s only the beginning. […]Continue Reading ...
Do you get frustrated and angry when your WiFi connection stops working? It could be because of your personality. When digital technology stops working, people with a fear of missing out (FOMO) — the anxiety that you’re missing a social experience others might be having while you’re not online — or an internet addiction have […]Continue Reading ...

Stanford surgeon Carla Pugh, MD, PhD, was a medical student and resident at Howard University when something occurred to her that would change the course of her career. “Before I could operate on a tumor, I needed to know how densely it was attached. A CT scan couldn’t tell me — the only way I’d […]Continue Reading ...
New accelerator-based technology being developed by the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University aims to reduce the side effects of cancer radiation therapy by shrinking its duration from minutes to under a second. Built into future compact medical devices, technology developed for high-energy physics could also help make radiation therapy more […]Continue Reading ...
The ever-evolving role of technology raises important questions about patient privacy, consent, and how digital health companies collect, store, and use data. Nicole Martinez-Martin, PhD, JD, a postdoctoral fellow in biomedical ethics, is working to inject ethical principles into this intersection of technology and health. I sat down with her to learn more. What brought […]Continue Reading ...
Innovations in technology offer convenience to patients, allow physicians to monitor patients from afar and offer promise in genetics-based diagnoses, according to leading experts scheduled to speak at the 2018 American Academy of Pediatrics National Conference & Exhibition. The Pediatrics for the 21st Century symposium, “Leveraging New Technologies to Transform Child Health,” kicks off the […]Continue Reading ...
Checking the heartbeat of babies in the womb is set to become more accurate and less stressful for expectant mothers thanks to research by the University of Sussex. Dr Elizabeth Rendon-Morales has a developed a much more effective sensor to measure a baby’s heartbeat without needing to visit a hospital. It could help detect heart-related […]Continue Reading ...
When a medication doesn’t “fit” the body quite right, the results can be devastating. Such is the case for thalidomide, which was prescribed in the 1950s and 1960s as a sedative or hypnotic, even for pregnant women. Although one version of thalidomide, referred to as the left-handed form, is a powerful tranquilizer, it was tragically […]Continue Reading ...
