The use revolutionary medical equipment in cancer treatment has made it possible for patients to enjoy a wide range of services that concern 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 that doctors have been facing when it comes to treating cancer is dealing with resistance drugs. The use of technology has helped doctors to carry out research and come up with a product that can deal with this challenge. One of the tools that technology has produced and which is now being used to treat cancer is the feedback system control which is a drug that can help doctors, analyze the physical trait of the cell and create a mapping effects on the conditions of the drug in the body system of the
In biomedical engineering it combines my love of math and my want to save lives or improve them. However, in pathology I really want to look for diseases. I think this job will be interesting. In particular, I want to look at tissue samples and look for cancer cells to see if they are cancerous or not cancerous. Cancer has always encaptured my attention.
In review of how Fox Chase Cancer Center already competes internally, the organization can continue to compete internally by ensuring shared data is accurate. An area of improvement would be to put in place clinical documentation improvement measures for physician documentation. With consistent annual updates to the diagnosis coding classification system ICD-10-CM, physicians will need to document with greater specificity. As the facility implements a CDI program there will be a better understanding of patient comorbidities and understanding of severity of illness, decrease in risk, performance metrics will rise, and there will be a significant improvement in patient outcomes, all which directly affect the revenue of the organization (Towers, Adele
With more research and studies, gene editing could potentially eliminate conditions and diseases. With gene editing, scientists and doctors will learn more about the human body. Right now, gene editing fixes broken genes that could potentially develop to cause diseases. As technology moves forward, gene editing could evolve into much more. For example, gene editing could possibly remove diseases from your genetic makeup.
Human can be needed to thrive but can sometimes only make certain situations worse or not much better than before. Like in my evidence “The ethical justification of biomedical research involving human subjects is the prospect of discovering new ways of benefiting people's health”. Which is basically stating that we perform human experimentation to benefit ourselves and others. Science-based medicine depends upon human experimentation. Scientists can do the most fantastic translational research in the world.
Medicine in particular is an area that is striving for new developments in diagnostics and treatments. Due to intensive research and the amount of passionate individuals I have encountered; I envision the future of medicine to be revolutionary and able to improve quality of life for many people. I strive to be one
Biomedical Engineers are the groundbreakers in the medical world in the 21st Century. Biomedical engineering is important to me because I want to improve in the technological world and I want to become a Ph.D. because I can help the world nationally. When going into the Biomedical engineering field you must learn basic key information about the field. First, we need to learn what the definition of a Biomedical Engineer is; they are people who apply the principles of technology and integrate them into the medical field. When on the worksite BM Engineers will perform many different tasks, such as: analyzing the human limbs for prosthetics, creating imaging machines such as the Magnetic Resource Imaging machine (MRI).
Although, Chemotherapy and Radiation can be very beneficial for cancerous or tumorous cells, it also comes with negative effects. In Lehto, Tenhola, Aromaa, and Taari’s experiment states that these radiotherapies have cause patients problems in sex-lives, urinary irritation, bowel dysfunctional, and much more. Furthermore, Advancement of medical technology can also lead to increase in cost of healthcare due to money needed for research and marketing to bring it up to the public and profit the creator and manufacturer. Tan and Ong in their article explains how physicians asks for unnecessary tests and treatments to decrease the amount of error and not get into legal procedures; however, these procedures are done to find out more diseases, which cause to increase business. Not only that, sometimes different sources advertise new technologies and pharmaceutical prescriptions, which maximizes demand and leads to rapid growth in health care cost.
This allows for variation in species and a better way to cope with changes and stresses in the environment In conclusion, Epigenetics is a double edged sword. It has both positive aspects that have helped the human population survive and grow but it has also has caused disease and unstable DNA. With this knowledge, Scientists are testing the possible of artificially modifying the epigenome through gene therapy. This can cure diseases such as cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer’s and creating a new human population that is able to adapt to various environmental
2. APPROACHES TO TREAT CANCER AND NEED OF INNOVATIVE THERAPEUTIC STRATEGIES Cancer as a disease has been known since long ago and various researchers have tried numerous therapeutic strategies as treatment approaches. Till date rate of occurrence as well as death rates are very high for this disease. Approaches used and are being used include surgery, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy and adjuvant therapy. All these strategies have their own advantages and limitations.
