Computer Assisted Sperm Analysis (CASA): A New Standard for Semen Quality Testing

Semen analysis remains one of the few areas of laboratory medicine with little or no automation, relying on training and technique to provide accurate test results. Led by Dr Mathew Tomlinson, a team at NUH has created a new computerised video tracking process that is helping Nottingham’s NHS fertility service improve standards and increase patient throughput.

Nottingham Prognostic Index Plus (NPI+): A Ground Breaking Tool for Breast Cancer

The Nottingham Prognostic Index Plus (NPI+) is an award winning decision making tool for clinicians to offer personalised medicine to all female patients with breast cancer. NPI+ builds considerably upon the original NPI that was developed in Nottingham in the early 1980s. NPI+ includes ground breaking functionality by predicting both clinical outcomes (survival) and by aiding customised therapeutics. NPI+ can be used for all female breast cancer patients, not just those who are oestrogen receptor positive.
