New Ways in the Field of Medical Imaging: Terahertz Radiation


24 November, 2011 | imaging equipment, MedWOW, Radiology, Terahertz

THz radiation has found two fundamental modes of application in medicine and biology: spectroscopy and imaging. In both in vivo and in vitro tests, THz radiation has been shown to perform well when compared to the standard in vitro histological testing. Other areas where THz is finding use is in dentistry, wound assessment and more.

About Remote Monitoring for Cardiac Pacemakers and Implantable Cardioverters Defibrillators Patients


17 November, 2011 | Cardiac Ultrasound, ICD, Pacemakers

In the innovative age of communication technology, new options are available for following-up patients implanted with cardiac pacemakers and implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD)s. Many companies offer devices with wireless capabilities that communicate automatically with home receivers, which then relay data to the physician, allowing remote patient follow-up and monitoring.

The Benefits of Pulse Oximetry


7 November, 2011 | MedWOW, Pulse Oximeters

Pulse oximetry is a continuous and non-invasive method of measuring the level of arterial oxygen saturation in blood. The measurement is taken by placing a sensor on a patient, usually on the fingertip for adults, and the hand or foot for infants. The sensor is connected to the pulse oximetry instrument with a patient cable. The pulse oximetry sensor collects signal data from the patient and sends it to the instrument.
