Ebola outbreak over 埃博拉疫情结束
High-tech device detects brain injuries 高科技设备检测脑部创伤
The World Health Organisation says the Ebola outbreak in Guinea is officially over, two years after it first emerged there. More than 11,000 people have died of the disease. Most of them have been in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. Health officials though still warning there could be sporadic outbreaks of Ebola.
A good news story now about a medical advance. London's air ambulance is trialling a handheld scanner - called the Infrascanner - that can detect potentially life-threatening brain injuries. The device can spot clots on the surface of the brain which, left untreated, could lead to disability or death.
这是一个与医学科技发展相关的好消息。伦敦的空中急救中心正在试用一种“Infrascanner 手持型红外扫描仪”- 可以及时发现潜在的危及生命的脑部创伤。该仪器可以发现位于脑部表层的淤血凝块，如果不及时治疗的话，可能会导致残疾或死亡。
