How Personalised 3D-Printed Drugs Can Cut Costs & Eliminate Fakes
Although 3D printing in life sciences is mostly associated with organs, of late, 3D-printed drugs are also gaining traction. Let’s find out the benefits of this fast growing tech solution that promises to solve the industry’s manufacturing woes.
WHO Issues Guidelines To ‘Pandemic Influenza'
The World Health Organisation (WHO)’s new guidelines for the clinical management of severe illness from influenza virus infections provide recommendations on the use of influenza antivirals, adjunctive therapies and diagnostic strategies.
Why Holomedicine Is Rapidly Gaining Ground
Medical holography has emerged as one of the most promising applications in the medical industry. Holographic imaging technology is advancing healthcare, life sciences, biomedical research as well as medical training and education. Mixed Reality (MR) applications are gradually making a progressive impact on healthcare deliveries with precise quantitative measurement of human internal anatomy elements in 3D holograms geometries displayed in actual physical space. Holographic 3D technology renders medical professionals with advanced diagnostic capabilities and surgical planning, by allowing them to slice virtual tissue, organs, and other body parts at various angles. Holomedicne advances access to percutaneous procedures without invasive needle techniques. Surgeons across the world are now curious to explore medical holograms to enhance the efficiency of complex surgeries.
