Esaote a Key Player on Argentina’s World Cup Team

Argentina’s team doctor, Dr. Alejandro Rolon, is taking no chances with his star-studded World Cup team in Brazil. The complete medical imaging department that has been created at Argentina’s training base includes a dedicated MRI system at the training center itself, and extends to field level ultrasound scanning of injuries, if required.

Esaote, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of diagnostic medical systems, has helped Dr. Rolon establish the facility. Dr. Rolon will be using Esaote’s O-Scan, a small and highly efficient MRI system specifically designed for imaging extremities such as knees and ankles, and its fully portable MyLab® ultrasound system.

Preparation is everything in world-class sports. The pressure to succeed is not only on the players and manager but also on the medical teams. Fast diagnosis is fundamental to treat and rehabilitate star players such as Lionel Messi and Sergio Aguero – getting them back playing as quickly as possible.

“There is no other system like the O-Scan MRI that allows for an easy installation directly in the stadium. I will also have one of Esaote’s fully portable ultrasound systems over my shoulder for immediate on-field diagnosis,” said Dr. Rolon.

“On the pitch I am able to diagnose not only the muscolotendinous pathologies but also many other bone and joint related injuries. While ultrasound is the main tool, the O-Scan MRI back at the camp will confirm the diagnosis and help me optimize treatment.”

Esaote has previously installed MRI systems at the ATP Madrid Masters’ tennis tournament and many top class club sides around the world have systems in their stadiums and training grounds. However, this is the first time that a dedicated MRI system has made an appearance at a World Cup.

“This is definitely the trend in elite sport and the future of sports medicine,” said Dr. Rolon. “Being able to instantly and correctly identify and classify the lesion will speed up athletes’ recovery time. The best opportunity for intervention, treatment and rehabilitation is right after the injury.”

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.

He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
