Women’s Soccer Travels to Western Illinois on Friday

first_img MACOMB, Ill. – The Drake University women’s soccer team hits the road for a brief road trip to take on the Western Illinois Leathernecks on Friday, Sept. 20 at 4 p.m. in Macomb. The Bulldogs lost a dramatic match to South Dakota, 2-1, on Tuesday night. Sophomore midfielder Libby Helverson ricocheted a shot off a defender and into the back of the net to give the Bulldogs a 1-0 lead in the 86th minute, but the Coyotes struck quickly in response, netting scores in the 87th and 88th minutes to steal a win in a thrilling match. Scouting Western Illinois Western Illinois has been much stronger within friendly confines in 2018, posting a 2-1-0 record at home. Last season the outfit from Macomb posted a 3-14-1 record, and the team was picked to finish ninth in the Summit League this year. “Going on the road to another Summit League opponent coming off this loss will be a test for us,” said Drake head coach Lindsey Horner. “I’m excited to see how our team responds and which of our players step up.” Drake (2-5-1) played well despite the loss, generating season-bests in shots (20) and corner kicks (12) while limiting South Dakota to a season-low nine shots. The Bulldogs will look to earn points for the fourth time in five matches against Western Illinois. Sophomore forward Amy Andrews leads Western Illinois with three goals and six points this season. She is joined in the attack by junior forward Lauryn Peters, who was named by Summit League coaches as a player to watch in the conference.Print Friendly Version Story Links The Leathernecks will bring a 2-4-1 record into Friday night’s match after losing their last three contests. The Leathernecks’ three-game skid can largely be chalked up to their offense running dry as they haven’t scored a goal in three matches. Live Video In 2018, the Bulldogs notched a 2-1 win over the Leathernecks in Des Moines. Hannah Bormann scored the game-winner in the 84th minute on an assist by Vanessa Kavan.

European project InSPECT develops miniature photonics spectrometers for tissue diagnostics

first_imgMay 8 2018TISSUE DIAGNOSTICS SUCCESSFULLY TESTEDToday physicians are still severely hampered by the lack of precision of the needle tip location during a biopsy. Looking at lung cancers, 25% of the diagnoses suffer a false negative outcome through traditional biopsy methods. In the future, this can be avoided: for the first time, the European project InSPECT developed miniature spectrometers with integrated light sources enabling guided sensing. Further, a new class of broadband light source has been developed based on solid state laser excitation of luminescent materials. For this, new luminescent materials have been developed covering the spectral range from 400 to 1700 nm and a prototype light source incorporating these materials has been realized.Eliminate delays in diagnose and treatmentPhysicians will be able to perform a precise and instant diagnoses, with the compact cubic-inch broadband spectrometers that can be developed at high volume and low-cost.The new generation of very compact and more cost-effective spectrometry solutions generate viable business models bringing spectral sensing inside the operating theatre, at general practitioners in their consultation rooms and to remote healthcare centers. By integrating an optical fiber inside a biopsy needle,  cancerous and non-cancerous tissue can be illuminated and differentiated by spectral analysis. Backscattered light is collected and led to a spectrometer that identifies spectral fingerprints like water, fat and hemoglobin. The different concentrations, collected by a second optical fiber, give real-time feedback to the physician during the medical intervention.This method for tissue detection allows a fast and accurate diagnoses that can significantly accelerate the start of the cancer treatment, vital to increase the survival rate and recovery of each patient.The photonics spectrometers pave the way for ultimate miniaturization of biophotonic and medical applications.   Prof. dr. Theo Ruers, Professor of Surgical Oncology at the Netherlands Cancer Institute comments:  ​There is possibility to use those technologies in smart surgical devices so the surgeon knows exactly if he/she is cutting into tumorous or into normal tissue. Another application could be to develop implantable tissue sensors. a compact cubic-inch like broadband spectrometer based on diffractive optics, and a spectrometer system based on Si-based TriPleX waveguide technology integrating the spectrometer onto a photonic integrated circuit.
