Keynote: Making Sense of Security and Applications in Sensors for Medical Devices
BCC forecasts IoT sensors for medical device applications will grow at 24.9% CAGR from 2016-2021. Applications include sensors that play roles in monitoring vital signs, providing alarms/notifications and feeding data to IoT platforms, and administering medical therapies. This Keynote Session explores how sensors are moving towards broader measurement to report on the context of medical information, increase the frequency/quality of data and increase the amount of interactivity with other data and devices to end users. This session also includes an overview of the security challenges and new opportunities to resolve them using a combination of technology, applications, and best practices.

Ultra-Small Catheter Sensors and Sub-Assemblies for FFR and Other Medical Applications

High demand for minimally invasive medical procedures is expected to boost the demand for catheters, including cardiovascular, urology, intravenous, neurovascular and specialty catheters. Many such procedures require small pressure and tactile-type sensors. Despite the small size, the sensors should provide required sensitivity, high signal-to-noise ratio and high stability.

This session provides an overview of basic design, fabrication process and performance of a family of ultra-small assembly-friendly MEMS piezoresistive sensors suitable for wide variety of applications, including high-performance pressure sensors for Fractional Flow Reserve (FFR) and robust force sensors for detecting contact with tissue in ablation catheters. We will look at examples from major manufacturers including Boston Scientific and Tanaka during the discussion.

Keynote: Transforming Care Models and Business Models with Digital Medicines
November 2017 was a pivotal moment for the emerging field of digital medicine: the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the world’s first NDA for a medicine including an ingestible sensor and an associated digital care management offering. ABILIFY MYCITE, developed by Otsuka Pharmaceutical and Proteus Digital Health, represents the first new category of drug approved by FDA since 1982 and is a new way to treat patients living with severe mental illness. The product and the expanding digital medicine field it represents also signals the emergence of a new business model for the pharmaceutical industry, one based on the integration of medications with hardware, software, analytics and services as well as one directly linked to patient-specific outcomes as the measure of pharmaceutical value and pricing. In this Keynote Session, David O'Reilly provides background and insights into the potential for digital medicine and the opportunities and challenges for the pipeline of products now being developed and commercialized in this field.

Adapting the World Through Technology
This talk will focus on one dad’s mission to use technology to adapt the world for his daughter’s extra needs as well as other people like her.

With the proliferation of sensing technology, the IOT, the connected home, and advancements in rapid prototyping, unique challenges are being solved every day to make our worlds safer, more efficient and fun. For people with extra needs, advancements in sensing and technology in general are providing independence and inclusion, but these advancements do not always hit the mark. We will explore some of the great technological advancements that are helping to adapt the world to people with extra needs as well as some areas that have been left behind and still need work.

At the end of the talk a short film will be presented outlining his family’s story and how the BecDot was born from a passion and desire to ensure that Rebecca had access to all forms of language at a young age.

Real-Time Intraoperative Fluorescence Imager for Microscopic Residual Tumor in Breast Cancer
Successful treatment of early stage cancer depends on the ability to resect both gross and microscopic disease, yet no method exists to identify residual cancer cells intraoperatively. This is particularly problematic in breast cancer, where microscopic residual disease can double the rate of cancer returning, from 15% to 30% over 15 years, affecting a striking 37,500 women annually. Currently, residual disease can only be identified by examining excised tumor under a microscope, visualizing tumor cells stained with specific tumor markers. This microscopic evaluation restricts identification of tumor cells to the post-operative setting. Unfortunately, traditional optics cannot be scaled to the sub-centimeter size necessary to fit into the cavity and be readily manipulated over the entire surface area. To solve this problem, we developed an imaging strategy that forgoes external optical elements for focusing light and instead uses angle-selective gratings patterned in the metal interconnect of a standard CMOS process.
