The segment of medical technology that involves maintaining and repairing equipment such as MRI, ultrasound and x-ray is immensely important. If ultrasound or MRI equipment does not function properly, which can lead to false results or therapies, the consequences for patients are unimaginable. And precisely because of its importance, the field of medical technology deserves a great deal of attention. innovations-report covers the key developments in medical equipment technology, including MRI, x-ray and ultrasound systems.
Ultrasound and MRI are two of the most frequently used systems in the field of medical technology. Depending on the type of tissue that needs to be examined, imaging processes such as ultrasound and MRI are carried out either with or without contrast agents. Ultrasound and MRI examinations are performed without ionizing radiation, whereas processes such as computer tomography require ionizing radiation. Basic knowledge of imaging processes such as MRI and ultrasound is essential for anyone involved in the field of medical technology. For these specialists and others who are interested in this area, innovations-report covers the latest research results originating from the field of medical imaging processes such as MRI and ultrasound.

In less than a minute, a miniature device developed at the University of Montreal can measure a patient's blood for methotrexate, a commonly used but potentially toxic cancer drug. Just as accurate and ten times less expensive than equipment currently used in hospitals, this nanoscale device has an optical system that can rapidly gauge the optimal dose of methotrexate a patient needs, while minimizing the drug's adverse effects. The research was led by Jean-François Masson and Joelle Pelletier of the university's Department of Chemistry.
Methotrexate has been used for many years to treat certain cancers, among other diseases, because of its ability to block the enzyme dihydrofolate reductase...
