Spiral commuted tomography scanner
Not just one, but a series of pictures with clarity and precision from within the body of a human being, that’s what the scanner does. Don’t you think it can be of great help for diagnosis as well as for understanding the progress a patient has achieved? We have it and so be sure our Doctors know exactly want they are facing right from the inside and not just from outside hypothetic.
A dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry scan (DXA), or bone density scan, is a special type of X-ray that measures bone mineral density (BMD). It provides information about bone strength or fragility and the risk of fractures or broken bones. The higher the density, generally, the lower the risk of fracture
The spine and one or both hips are routinely scanned. The forearm might also be scanned if either the hip or spine is unavailable (usually due to surgery). As any condition affecting bone density tends to affect the whole skeleton, a snapshot of a few sites is sufficient to establish the overall bone density. The BMD at the hip and spine has been shown to be the best way of predicting the risk of fracture.
Color Doppler an ultrasound technique to evaluate blood vessels. Using the Doppler principle of changing pitch with velocity, ultrasound waves that reflect from the red blood corpuscles in the arteries and veins are evaluated for velocity using which amplitude and color maps of the vessels can be generated. Color Doppler is very useful in evaluating the carotid arteries in the neck, the heart (echocardiography), the arteries and veins in the abdomen and the arteries and veins in the upper and lower limbs.
Ultrasound scanning/ultrasonography, also referred to as sonography, is a medical diagnostic technique that employs ultrasound imaging for muscle and organ visualization.
A more well-known diagnostic ultrasound variation used in pregnancy is obstetric sonography, operating at an energy frequency range of between 2 and 15 megahertz (MHz). Ultrasonic energy frequency is adjusted depending on the use, with lower frequencies for greater internal imaging capacity
SPECT-CT is where two different types of scans are taken and the images or pictures from each are fused or merged together. The fused scan can provide more precise information about how different parts of the body function and more clearly identify problems such as tumors (lumps) or Alzheimer’s disease, etc.
Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT): SPECT images are obtained following an injection of a radiopharmaceutical that is used for nuclear medicine scans. The injected medication sticks to specific areas in the body, depending on what radiopharmaceutical is used and the type of scan being performed, for example. it will show bone for a bone scan, and gall bladder and bile ducts for a hepatobiliary scan.
A catheterization laboratory or cath lab is an examination room in a hospital or clinic with diagnostic imaging equipment used to visualize the arteries of the heart and the chambers of the heart and treat any stenosis or abnormality found
A device that pulverizes kidney stones by passing shock waves through awater-filled tub in which the patient sits. The procedure creates stonefragments small enough to be expelled in the urine.
A binocular microscope used to obtain good visualization of fine structures in the operating field; in the standing type of microscope, amotorized zoom lens system operated by hand or foot controls provides an adjustable working distance; in head borne models, interchangeable oculars provide the magnification needed.
The machine used to deliver this therapeutic shock to the heart is called a defibrillator.
The Harmonic scalpel is a surgical instrument used to simultaneously cut and cauterize tissue. Unlike a Bovie, the harmonic uses ultrasonic vibrations instead of electric HYPERLINK “https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electricity”currentto cut and cauterize tissue.
The use of electrocautery for coagulation or cauterization, as for sealing a blood vessel, resulting in local tissue destruction
An imaging scanner intensifier, so named because of its configuration. C-arms have radiographic capabilities, though they are usedprimarily for fluoroscopic imaging during surgical, orthopedic, critical care, and emergency care procedures.
A medical ventilator (or simply ventilator in context) is a machine designed to mechanically move breathable air into and out of the lungs, to provide the mechanism of breathing for a patient who is physically unable to breathe, or breathing insufficiently
In medicine, monitoring is the observation of a disease, condition or one or several medical parameters over time.
It can be performed by continuously measuring certain parameters by using a medical monitor (for example, by continuously measuring vital signs by a bedside monitor), and/or by repeatedly performing medical tests (such as blood glucose monitoring with a glucose in people with diabetes mellitus).
TMT is the most widely used test in the diagnosis of ischemic heart disease. It involves recording the 12-lead ECG before, during, and after exercise on a treadmill.
The test consists of a standardized gradual incremental increase in external workload while the patient’s ECG, symptoms, and arm blood pressure are continuously being monitored. The test is discontinued upon evidence of chest discomfort, severe shortness of breath, dizziness, fatigue, ST-segment depression of greater than 0.2 mV (2 mm), a fall in systolic blood pressure exceeding 10 mmHg, or the development of a ventricular tachyarrhythmia.
This test helps to discover any relation between exercise and chest discomfort and the typical ECG signs of myocardial ischemia.
Doppler echocardiography is a procedure that uses ultrasound technology to examine the heart or blood vessels. An echocardiogram uses high frequency sound waves to create an image of the heart while the use of Doppler technology allows determination of the speed and direction of blood flow by utilizing the Doppler Effect.
The AutoAnalyzer is an automated analyzer using a flow technique called continuous flow analysis (CFA), first made by the Technicon Corporation. The instrument was invented 1957 by Leonard Skeggs, PhD and commercialized by Jack Whitehead’s Technicon Corporation. The first applications were for clinical analysis, but methods for industrial analysis soon followed. The design is based on separating a continuously flowing stream with air bubbles.
The enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) is a test that uses antibodies and color change to identify a substance.
ELISA is a popular format of “wet-lab” type analytic biochemistry assay that uses a solid-phase enzyme immunoassay (EIA) to detect the presence of a substance, usually an antigen, in a liquid sample or wet sample.
The ELISA has been used as a diagnostic tool in medicine and plant pathology, as well as a quality-control check in various industries.
An audiometer is a machine used for evaluating hearing acuity. They usually consist of an embedded hardware unit connected to a pair of headphones and a test subject feedback button, sometimes controlled by a standard PC. Such systems can also be used with bone vibrators, to test conductive hearing mechanisms.
The dialysis machine mixes and monitors the dialysate. Dialysate is the fluid that helps remove the unwanted waste products from your blood. It also helps get your electrolytes and minerals to their proper levels in your body. The machine also monitors the flow of your blood while it is outside of your body. You may hear an alarm go off from time to time. This is how the machine lets us know that something needs to be checked.
Light therapy or phototherapy (classically referred to as heliotherapy) consists of exposure to daylight or to specific wavelengths of light using polychromatic polarized light, lasers, light-emitting diodes, fluorescent lamps, dichroic lamps or very bright, full-spectrum light. The light is administered for a prescribed amount of time and, in some cases, at a specific time of day.
Radiant warmers are used to maintain the body temperature of newborn infants. This is best done so that the energy expended for metabolic heat production is minimized.
a device used to monitor the fetal heartbeat and the strength of the mother’s uterine contractions during labor. Abbreviation: EFM. Electronic fetal monitor in Medicine Expand. Electronic fetal monitor n. An electronic device used during labor to monitor fetal heartbeat and maternal uterine contractions.
A Cryogenic processor is a unit designed to reach ultra-low temperatures (usually around -300°F / -150°C) at a slow rate in order to prevent thermal shock to the components being treated. The first commercial unit was developed by Ed Busch in the late 1960s.
