Radiation in medicine – damage and benefits

Dear Sir or Madam,

Radiation is an essential component in medicine for diagnosis and therapy. It allows a view into the body and the localization and treatment of tumors. This makes it all the more important to protect patients against the harmful effect of radiation. In our interview you can read more about the current state of radiation protection in medicine.

A winter week wishes

Radiation protection in medicine: There is still lots of work to be done talks about...

Medical radiation is a double-edged sword: from a diagnostic perspective, it allows us to look inside the human body, while it can also be used to treat cancer. However, each use exposes patients to radiation, which in turn can pose health risks and should, therefore, be avoided. This is where the European joint research program MEDIRAD comes in.

3D-printing in application and research – BiomaTiCS at Mainz University Medical Center


Photo: Preview picture of video "BiomaTiCs"
3D printing brings with it many design possibilities, and thus many different applications that are also of interest to medicine. At the BiomaTiCS research centre at the Mainz University Medical Center, Germany, we took a closer look at two different applications of 3D printing: the production of patient-specific models and bioprinting for regenerative medicine.

Bone replacement: combined processes create near-natural structure

Human bones have a hard shell exterior and a soft, spongy interior. To repair damages to bones, surgeons prefer to use material from the patient’s own body or solid fillers, though the latter do not adequately replicate the natural characteristics of bones. This might compromise the process of bone regeneration.
