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.

A case report, describing how water-filtered infrared-A (wIRA) overcomes swallowing disorders and hypersalivation, has been published on 03. August 2017 in the interdisciplinary e-journal "GMS German Medical Science" of the Association of Scientific Medical Societies (AWMF) . Water-filtered infrared-A (wIRA) is a special form of heat radiation with high tissue penetration and a low thermal load to the skin surface, see Figure 1. wIRA corresponds to the major part of the sun’s heat radiation, which reaches the surface of the Earth in moderate climatic zones filtered by water and water vapour of the atmosphere.
