Due to an advancement of medical equipment technology, mostly all the medical organizations uses electronic imaging devices to capture the cancerouslesions from skin, internal organ ulcers, status of fractured bones by x-ray and musclesby ultrasound and activity of brain functionality by MRI devices for proper and effective diagnosis. Mostly the output of these devices are in the form of images and imaged output is most of the times
The surgeon will take a hard-to-reach tissue sample during the surgery. o Stereotactic Biopsy: During this process, either CT or MRI is used. The images captured by these devices help the surgeon to determine the exact location of the needle in the targeted tissue from the tumor. o Needle Biopsy: Like other needle biopsies, the surgeon uses a needle to remove the suspicious tissue sample. But a small hole in the skull is first made, known as blur hole in order to pass the needle through it.
One of the tools that technology has produced and which is used to treat cancer is the feedback system control which is a drug that can help the doctor to analyze the physical trait of the cell that would create a mapping effects on the conditions of the drug in the body system of the patient. Currently, the doctors have used technology to do genetic profiling of the patients. This enables the patient to receive a combination of therapies which makes it difficult to treat and prevent gene mutation in the cell. This new technology does not depend on the genetic information because once the profiling has been done, then it becomes easy for treatment to be carried out. The use of drug escalation has been used by doctors to monitor the treatment of cancer.
During these studies, the researchers examined the effects of some of the radiation from a CT scan on cells. The radiation from the CT scan damaged them slightly but only if there was a very high amount of radiation exposure. Also some cardiology experts have combined two types of imaging techniques to produce a 3D model of a person 's heart. This is the first time CT and 3DTEE has been used together like this and they are also trying to find a way to combine it with an MRI
Telehealth can facilitate developing inter-professional care plans. Patients with neurologic conditions including stroke, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis may use telehealth to monitor symptoms and response to treatment. Telehealth also may facilitate occupational and physical therapy programs as well as improve weight management and skin care in patients with chronic conditions. Other applications include imaging review in sports medicine, symptom management and counseling in concussion, traumatic brain injury, and pain management programs. Limitations of telehealth include barriers in establishing relationship between medical provider and patient, ability to perform limited physical examination, and differences in payment models and liability coverage.
Diagnostic imaging techniques such as MRI and X-ray scans are both use in medical/clinical settings to help doctors with their diagnosis of a patient 's body. By using these techniques, a more accurate diagnosis of a potential or present injury/ illness of a person can be understood and can be visually determined. With that being said one major difference in the way that the two techniques obtain their images is the use of radiation. In an X-ray scan the use of gamma radiation helps with being able to obtain an image of an internal structure of the body. Whilst an MRI scan will use magnetic radiation to achieve the same goal.
Stereotaxic surgery is a three dimensional surgical technique used to locate lesions deep within the tissues of the brain and to perform some actions such as biopsy, ablation, and radio surgery etc. (https://www.urmc.rochester.edu/neurosurgery/for-patients/treatments/stereotactic-brain-surgery.aspx) British scientists, a physician and neurosurgeon Sir Victor Horsley and a physiologist, Robert H. Clarke, in the year 1908 first developed the stereotactic method at University College, London hospital. Formerly called as Horsley-Clarke apparatus, this method was first used for animal experimentation which implemented a three orthogonal axis system for the experiment. Due to the lack of ability to visualize intracranial autonomic detail via radiography using the Horsley-Clarke model for studying the human brain, contrasted brain radiography made the process of conceptualization of intracranial anatomic reference easy. The pineal gland and the foramen of Monro were used as landmarks by the first stereotactic devices.
At the age of 90 years, the patient may not be a candidate for another hip replacement surgery, and the patient would have to live with the prosthesis. The consequence of using a more expensive prosthesis would be that the number of surgeries would have to be reduced and some patient may be denied a prosthesis. Also, it seems as if there is a potential loss of income for the surgeon. The patients do not have the decision-making right to request a procedure, and so they cannot decide which prosthetic they want. The virtue of compassion could support the more expensive prosthesis, because it would prevent potential pain when the prosthetic started failing.
The lack of financial resources can be a big problem to access to health care. The lack of available finance is a barrier to health care for many Americans but access to health care is reduced most among minority populations. The irregular source of care is another reason why access to health is a disparity. Compared to white individuals ethnic or racial minorities are less likely to be able to visit the same doctor on a regular basis and tend to rely more on clinics and emergency rooms (News Medical Life Sciences). 5.
Though a lot of people don’t mind having a bright and straight smile, it’s somewhat rare to find somebody who enjoys going to a children’s dentist, even for cleaning. The stress of having someone using metal picks, scrapers, tubes, and another kind of tools on your mouth is just too much to tolerate. Another factor why many haven’t checked out with their dentist are the expenses because the cost of paying the dentist has increased in the past years. Why Dental Care Is So Expensive Below are a few of the factors of the increasing cost of dentistry. Sterilization Infection Control for a safer delivery of care.
Valuable diagnostic information can be obtained from the ability to view bone surfaces. For example, Blankstein observes that fractures can be seen as disruptions in the cortex. Many types of pathology can be identified as cortical irregularities including Hill-Sachs disease, osteolytic lesions, exostoses, and osteophytes. Bone tumors have been evaluated with ultrasound. Ultrasound is particularly advantageous in this case because blood flow to the tumor can be assessed in the same exam using Doppler settings.
In order to be diagnosed with transverse myelitis they are tests that need to get done. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) creates a 3-D image of the soft tissues. It also helps to identify other cause of symptoms. Lumbar puncture (spinal tap) is used to draw a small amount of cerebrospinal fluid (Clinic, 2014). In patients with transverse myelitis the CSF will contain abnormal white blood cell which can later be examined to verify if it is cancer or an infection that causes the abnormality.
Finding An Answer To Your Health Concerns: Diagnosing Multiple Sclerosis A correct diagnosis of multiple sclerosis is attempted by taking a close-up look at the nerve cell tissues in the brain and spinal cord. The answers to developing health concerns like speech impairments, blurred vision and severe fatigue are often found in testing procedures such as these: Measuring the Water Content In Tissues An MRI is a tool that is used to examine different concerns in the body, including a disease called multiple sclerosis. This non-invasive action can get an image of the spinal cord, brain or other parts of the body. The MRI analyzes the water content in tissues. A fatty layer called myelin protects the nerve cell fibers by repelling water.

Scientists are developing a laboratory test for CJD, using cerebrospinal fluid. (National Instituion of Neurololgical disorders and Stroke) This test will detect a protein marker that indicates neuronal degeneration from the cerebrospinal fluid. It will be safer for the patient, as well as, the medical staff, and a better alternative to the brain
