The latest research and clinical developments from in medical technology are presented in a clear and easy-to-understand manner, covering topics such as imaging processes, dialysis equipment, ultrasound, cell and tissue engineering, implants, MRI, orthopedic aids, dental materials and surgical technologies.
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 the field of medical technology, innovations-report covers the latest scientific findings and information related to medical technology, including innovations in the area of medical equipment such as MRI and ultrasound systems.

Tau PET is a new and promising imaging method for Alzheimer’s disease. A case study from Lund University in Sweden now confirms that tau PET images correspond to a higher degree to actual changes in the brain. According to the researchers behind the study, this increases opportunities for developing effective drugs.
There are several different methods of producing images showing the changes in the brain associated with Alzheimer’s disease. The tau PET method reveals the...28.09.2016 | Read more
A research team from the University of Bonn has succeeded for the first time in using light stimuli to stop life-threatening cardiac arrhythmia in mouse hearts. Furthermore, as shown in computer simulations at Johns Hopkins University, this technique could also be used successfully for human hearts. The study opens up a whole new approach to the development of implantable optical defibrillators, in which the strong electrical impulses of conventional defibrillators are replaced by gentler, pain-free light impulses. The "Journal of Clinical Investigation" has now published the results.

Each year, millions of people--especially those 65 and older--fall. Such falls can be serious, leading to broken bones, head injuries, hospitalizations or even death. Now, researchers from the Sinclair School of Nursing and the College of Engineering at the University of Missouri found that sensors that measure in-home gait speed and stride length can predict likely falls. This technology can assist health providers to detect changes and intervene before a fall occurs within a three-week period.
"We have developed a non-wearable sensor system that can measure walking patterns in the home, including gait speed and stride length," said Marjorie Skubic,...29.08.2016 | Read more
Cytocompatibility studies of organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) have been carried out on cell cultures for the first time at the Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP to test how well OLEDs are tolerated by cells. The results offer promising prospects for the use of OLEDs in the medical field, such as in light therapy. The findings were published in a white paper entitled “Preliminary cytocompatibility studies for encapsulated OLEDs” and likewise be presented at the 4th Industry Partners Day of the Fraunhofer FEP in Dresden on September 28, 2016.
