"Radiology is a medical specialty that uses imaging to diagnose and treat diseases seen within the body. Radiologists use many imaging techniques including: X-ray radiography, ultrasound, computed tomography, nuclear medicine including positron emission tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging to diagnose and treat diseases. " Some of the experiments they do include testing X-ray dark-field radiography on a living organism for the first time. They test the organism for lung disease.
Plus 0.35% of children get cancer and is always being overlooked. Childhood cancer research is vastly and consistently underfunded. Childhood cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children under the age of 15 in the U.S.One in 285 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer by the time they are 20 years old. Every year, an estimated 250,000+ new cases of cancer affect children under the age of 20 worldwide. Two-thirds of
A SURVEY ANALYSIS ON SEGMENTING THE SKIN LESIONS 1.B.MAHESWARI,2.A.AKBAR BASHA 1.ME(CSE),Department of Computer Science Engineering, 2.Asst. Prof,Department of Computer Science Engineering, email@example.com,firstname.lastname@example.org. Oxford Engineering college,Trichy. ABSTRACT Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer if left uncured. Frequency rates of melanoma have been rising, especially between young adults, but continued existence rates are high if detected untimely.
Tobacco has been around in America for many decades. Tobacco use is the number one cause of preventable death in the United States and around the world. Tobacco use is a licit substance that has caused over one hundred million deaths worldwide and more than 480,000 people per year in America. Tobacco use is reported to cause more deaths more than AIDS, alcohol, car accidents, illegal drugs, murders, and suicides combined. Smoking-related deaths account for nearly one out of every five deaths in the United States every year, more than 1,200 deaths each day.
The high prevalence of hypertension worldwide has contributed to the present pandemic of cardiovascular disease. World Health Organization South East Asia Region (2013) found that nearly 1.5 million people die due to hypertension making it a leading risk factor for mortality. Hypertension is a term used to describe high blood pressure. Flow of blood is based on the beat of which the heart pumps blood. The pressure of the heart does not stay at the same level at all times.
As we all know that the heart allows blood flow within the human body. But with having a heart comes with its diseases just like any other organ we have in our body. Heart disease is also know as CVD (cardiovascular disease)or CHD (Coronary heart disease).It is diseased vessels ,structural problems and blood clots. About 600,000 die from heart disease every year (1 in every 4 deaths) . At least 47% of people have a least 1 of the 3 major risk factors, diabetes, smoking , not active, ect...
The use revolutionary medical equipment in cancer treatment has made it possible for patients to enjoy a wide range of services that concerns the treatment. The use of nanotechnology enhanced medications has been a major step in the treatment of cancer across the globe (Janice 2009). One of the challenges which doctors have been facing when it comes to treating cancer is dealing with drugs resistance drugs. The use of technology has helped doctors to carry out research and come up with a product that would deal with the challenge. 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.
In 2007, the total amount of oxycodone produced was a whooping seventy five tons. This number rose to over a hundred and twenty two tons in 2010. A more disturbing fact about Percocet is that it has hit women, adolescents and seniors more badly. In 2006, oxycodone pills sent over sixty four thousand patients to the Emergency Room (ER).
The risk of developing a surgical wound infection is largely determined by three factors: the load, type of microbial contamination of the wound and host susceptibility7. Cleansing is a vital component of wound management. Iodine is a highly effective topical antimicrobial that has been used clinically in the treatment of wounds for more than 170 years. It has a broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity with efficacy against bacteria, mycobacteria, fungi, protozoa and viruses and can be used to treat both acute and chronic wounds8. Therefore, the present study was taken up to screen for the presence of aerobic bacteria from post-operative wounds, to detect antibiotic susceptibility pattern and to evaluate the antibacterial activity of
This means 90 people will be added to the waiting list during a day. How many people die in the USA per day then? Just in the USA it dies over 6000 people per day, which means that if every person in the USA donated their organs, we wouldn’t have a waiting list to organ transplantation in 14 days. As an organ donor you have the possibility to choose to donate the organs or tissues as you specify or any needed organs.
As age increase, so does cancer risks, with individuals over 65 making up 60% of cancer diagnoses (Berger et al., 2006). Radiation therapy is utilized in over 50% of cancers in the United States unfortunately there is a much higher incidence of death in low income underdeveloped countries where there is a shortage of access to radiation therapy. In 2012, there were a reported 14 million new cases of cancer worldwide, and estimated to reach 24.5 million by 2030 (Atun et al., 2015).
There are approximately 350 million individuals living with DM worldwide. In the United States, the rate of T2DM has increased in individuals of AA descent with the prevalence rate escalating in the past 30 years and has quadrupled. AAs above 20 years of age are 1.7 times more likely to be diagnosed with DM than the Caucasians. They accounted for 10.8% of all individual with diabetes (CDC, 2015). A comparison of rates of diagnosis of diabetes mellitus by ethnicity and race disclosed that in 2010 the AAs diagnosed for diabetes were 13.2% of 29.1 million Americans (ADA, 2014).
I am regarding the Ensuring Access to Clinical Trials Act of 2015 for Rare Diseases. H.R. 209 [114th] I am writing you to ask that you help pass the new bill. The cruel disease Cystic Fibrosis (a life-threatening, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and progressively limits the ability to breathe) effects about 30,000 people living with Cystic Fibrosis (70,000 worldwide), approximately 1,000 new cases of Cystic Fibrosis are diagnosed each year. In the past two years I have met
The United States is facing an epidemic. As many are aware, prescription opioid abuse is a problem across the country. Within the last ten years, the United States has seen an alarming increase of opioid overdoses. Prescription painkillers claim the lives of 120 people every day, and approximately 6,700 people visit the emergency room for opioid abuse. In the current state, prescription drug overdoses claim more lives than car accidents.
With the increase in age, comes an increase in age-related chronic illnesses. Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease are expected to almost double every 20 years as life expectancy increases. There is also an increased need for specialized health care workers. By 2030, it is estimated that 36,000 geriatricians will be needed in the U.S. In 2008, however, there were only 7,000 practicing geriatricians.
