“Technology has improved laboratory testing; allowed for the development of CT scans, magnetic resonance imaging exams and positron emission tomography, or PET, imaging to improve diagnostic accuracy; and produced new drugs and devices” said Lawrence K. Altman. Technology has also contributed to develop “better nursing care, newer antibiotics, transfusions of platelets to prevent bleeding, and the insertion of monitoring tubes in major veins.”
The word laser is an acronym for, “Light Amplified by Stimulated Emissions of Radiation”, this means that all the lights in a laser have the same wavelength. Within a century of the laser being invented it occupied a major role in scientific research, medicine, industry, and even daily life. Lasers are used in the medicine field for procedures such as, laser eye surgery, heart, stomach, and intestinal surgeries. These procedures laser procedures are said to be harmless. Major factory industries use lasers to cut many things ranging from thin
It may be where a patient is in and out of the hospital so quick that maybe the cost is less. However, everything will be online. There may be more laser surgeries, less cost to the patient, less hospital stay and where surgeries will be faster and less pain for the patient. There has already been so much done thru technology
Sure enough, many inventions have given us the possibility of curing diseases and other disorders that was never possible several decades ago. From various scanning machines such as MRIs and CATs to different machines that assist with the most complicated surgeries in which precision is key. Technologies have advanced diagnostics immensely allowing for the prevention of numerous diseases or catching them at the right time while they are at the early stage of development. Technologies allowed us to see yet unborn children within the mother's abdomen - something that would seem beyond possible at any time in 1901. Alas, technology cannot be defined within the sphere of medicine alone. It has brought about countless negative aspects that hinder us constantly sometimes without us even noticing the damage
Theses technologies, if they replace more costly treatments or those of lesser quality in terms of efficaciousness, the result will be lower costs and better outcomes for the patient and the healthcare system (citiation)
Additionally, advancements in medical information technology would give doctors better access and improve patient care. In addition, increased technology could assist with monitoring and managing diseases. Medical advancements could decrease costs to your business by way of decreased insurance premiums for you and your employees.
There are various positive and negative effects of the impact of medical applications of physics on society, such as raising the standard of care for human beings, as well as being ethically challenged (right vs. wrong).
Contemporary scientific progression and discourses allude to the emergence of an increasingly technological future. Implicit within this notion is the premise that emerging technologies can be used to open new frontiers that benefit and promote human advancement. Intuitively, this stipulation can be extrapolated to medicine where present technologies play a critical mantle in upholding the therapeutic and traditional aims of medical doctrine. But beyond conventional medical applications of technologies, many have begun to recognize their underlying potential for not only treatment, but enhancement of our present biological state.
With the technology, we should be able to, in the future, help cure diseases and maybe even help prevent/help disabilities that are both mental and physical. For example, we could use this newly developed technology to help cure HIV. Not just fight it off or just prevent it, but cure it. We could help people with handicaps like Asperger’s Syndrome and insert a gene or two so that their brains are more used to social conversations. We could help people with ADD/ADHD by inserting genes that help their brains focus! We could help people globally with just about any issue involving their
Obviously these discoveries make great contribution to modern medicine. They not only raise patients’ survival rates but also relieve the pain for patients. We could not image how the hospital would be without these greatest discoveries. So it is obvious that discovery in medical field is a good thing.
