What affects the medical market, what new developments are happening?
02/11/2016Implants require sufficient and permanent energy to function as desired. However, unlike a mobile phone or a camera, the size of the battery plays an important role in implants. Researchers are therefore looking for ways to deliver energy from outside.
01/09/2016Contrast agents improve the imaging of tissue made by MRI and thus are essential for getting more detailed imaging. But commonly used contrast agents, that are usually based on the metal gadolinium, cannot show enough contrast in early stage of diseases without increasing their concentration up to high levels.
01/07/2016Even though the field of medical technology has already discovered the nanoworld a long time ago, it is still not as fully researched as it should be. Physicians dream about curing diseases such as cancer with an injection containing nanoparticles. But this is still a long way off in the future since research is continuously facing obstacles.
