Technology changed the world of medicine and it’s due to the innovative ideas and solutions that scientists introduce daily. For the last five years, we are facing a great change in the medical industry.
Technology plays an important role in all these processes. Now there is more accessible treatment and care for the patients, discoveries of new medicines, awareness of diseases, proper guidance is given to the people through the internet.
Here is the list of ways through which technology changed medicine:
- 3D printing Technology:
By using the process of 3-D printing, doctors can reproduce the internal organs just like bones. Doctors can easily examine the internal structure of the patient and treat them according to it.This procedure makes life much easier for the doctors to get a quick solution to the disease. The affected area is replaced by introducing artificial organs inside the body of the patient.
- Machine Learning Radiology:
Technology makes our life much easier and changes the future of health industries in front of our eyes. An example of this is machine learning radiology that is the method used by radiologists to make a wise decision on the data. The data is actually radiology reports you have got after the radiographs like X-RAY, CT, and PET images. Medical technology organizations are also playing an important role in the economic growth of the country.
- A complete history of the patient:
Technology makes our life much easier as the complete history of the patients is stored and saved in the health centers that help the doctors to diagnose and treat the disease of different patients. Doctors study the complete history of patients and easily give instant and better treatment to the patients.
- Technology introduced Remote monitoring:
Now you don’t need to go to the hospital to consult doctors. Technology makes your life much easier, you can consult your doctor at home without visiting any hospital. Patients can save both their precious time and money. Remote monitoring technology is very useful for pacemaker patients.
- Communication through electronic devices:
Technology improved the link between the patient and doctor. As we all know, there is a very busy schedule for doctors and therefore patients don’t get the proper attention that they want. But technology makes it much easier for the patients by improving the electronic media. Technology improved the communication system.
- Virtually communication with patients:
One of the most important services that health centers are providing to their patients is remote clinical services, also known as telemedicine. In this method patients and doctors connect virtually through video calls and share all their details with each.
The term Radiology is the subdivision of Medicines that includes the use of imaging technology where a doctor can diagnose and treat different types of diseases. Radiology further can be divided into two more parts:
- Diagnostic Radiology
- Interventional Radiology:
With the help of the radiology process, health professionals can examine the internal structure of our bodies.
Here we will discuss the most common kinds of diagnostic radiology exams:
- CT(Computed Tomography)
- PET(Positron emission tomography)
- MRI(Magnetic resonance imaging)
- MRA(Magnetic resonance angiography)
