Artrya secures UK, EU approval for Salix
Within a week, ASX-listed pharmatech company Artrya received both European Union and UK regulatory approval for its Salix Coronary Anatomy product.

The approvals also represent a victory for the company after suffering a major setback in June when the US Food and Drug Administration rejected the initial 510(k) application for its software product.
Meanwhile, Salix is now ready for commercialization in Australia and New Zealand after securing authorizations over the past two years.

RMIT researchers are working on a mobile thermal imaging device to screen chronic wounds
A research team from RMIT University and the Bolton Clarke Research Institute is working to get their thermal imaging device to screen chronic wounds on mobile phones.
This comes after they were able to demonstrate much faster diagnosis of chronic leg ulcers using AI technology in a recent clinical trial. study.
“Our new work identifying chronic leg ulcers at the first visit is a world first,” said lead researcher Dinesh Kumar, who is also a professor at the RMIT School of Engineering.
While thermal imaging has been used frequently to detect chronic wounds, the team’s AI system can make a “significantly earlier” diagnosis than current methods.
“Our innovation is not sensitive to changes in ambient temperature and light, so it is effective for nurses to use it during regular visits to people’s homes,” explained co-researcher Dr Quoc Cuong Ngo.
The research team is now continuing to work on a mobile version of their thermal imaging solution after receiving a grant from the federal Futures Fund for Medical Research.
They are also looking to evaluate whether their AI technology can also predict the healing of diabetic foot ulcers.
