Since its discovery in 1870 by medical doctor Raymond Damadian, Magnetic Resonance Imaging has been an important tool in diagnostic imaging. Magnetic Resonance Imaging is used to distinguish pathologic tissue from normal tissue and because of this we are able to diagnose pathology such as brain tumors or even prostate cancer. The MRI scanner uses strong magnetic fields and non-ionizing electromagnetic fields in the radio frequency range. Since the field is not in the radio frequency range and the radiation is non-ionizing, unlike the convention x-rays and the CT scanner, the MRI scan is harmless to the patient, which is a major advantage in diagnostic radiography since all radiographers adhere to the ALARA principal where the patient dose of radiation should always be “As Low As Reasonable Achievable” as a means of protecting the patient from harmful ionizing radiation. Since an MRI scan mainly deals with visualizing soft tissue within the body, it is necessary to have a clear representation of the part being investigated.
The pain of golfer's elbow may appear suddenly or gradually. The diagnosis is based on observation of the clinical or symptoms and signs vvero examining and analyzing the history of the patient medical history. It is normally carried out an Xray to rule out fractures. The Xray of course in the case of epicondylitis will not give any result and the limit will only highlight any formation of calcifications. To investigate the impairment of tendon tissue and the extent of the inflammatory process is possible ultrasound or even better ultrasound, which also highlight the blood flow, and MRI is a test that still expensive and not always strictly necessary.
If one takes the time to research and follow a few simple tips, one can greatly reduce the medical dangers related to receiving a tattoo. A concern that most people have when thinking about the procedure is the safety of getting the tattoo. Getting a tattoo can be safe as long as one does some research subsequent to receiving the tattoo. The most serious procedure one should research is the tattoo parlors sterilization measures. Since the needles of the tattoo gun pierces the skin, some blood will be produced; the bigger the tattoo the more blood, which is why it is possible to pass blood-borne diseases.
Although, what about the patients’ right to know their health conditions? There are many conflicts to bioethics principles, but discarding the embryos and hiding health information from the patient are two important moral issues. Even though embryo research can treat medical diseases, discarding infected or unused embryos raises ethical dilemmas. Discarding embryos, freezing them and allowing them to die are against the bioethics beneficence principle, which means act in a way so that the results are the best and the least harm(p. 202). In the case study 1 ”Controversial Transplant a Success,” Steve Karnowski writes about the case of a 6 year old girl, Molly, who suffered from a genetic disorder that is seldom seen, called Fanconi anemia, which interrupts the body from manufacturing bone marrow and that would lead to her death.
In addition to the general risks of surgery, there's always the possibility of issues arising due to anesthesia. In some ways, cosmetic surgery can be more challenging if the patient doesn't tolerate general anesthesia. Many of these procedures are done in surgery centers or in an operating suite in the physician's office. For most patients, this isn't a serious concern. But for the patient who becomes critically ill during surgery, being in a facility with an ICU and extensive resources for the very sick patient can make a tremendous difference in the outcome.
Blemish Removal In high enough concentrations, phenol's caustic effect allows it to quickly and relatively painlessly remove scars, warts, and precancerous growths. These procedures should be performed by a medical professional, as spills or miscalculations at this concentration can cause injury or unwanted side effects. Since phenol is readily absorbed through the skin, it may cause internal toxicity even if not consumed directly. Cosmetic Surgery The deepest facial peels use phenol. It is one of the most effective chemical exfoliant
The physician also suspects bone cancer may be a contributing factor to Susan’s fracture because bone tumors weaken the bone tissue and make fractures more likely. 2. CT and densitometry scans have the ability to reveal tumors, infection, necrosis, trauma, bone cancers and other metabolic disorders affecting the bone tissue. If Susan’s scan revealed a tumor, the physician would be able to see abnormal masses, if Susan’s scan showed changes in bone density and size, the physician would suspect osteoporosis. 3.
These abbreviations certainly save time and can expedite care, but they can also cause a multitude of problems. Abbreviations for differing medicines can be mistaken, Medical errors are typically caused by illegible writing and misrepresentations of some types of abbreviations when providing treatments or filling a prescription. As a result health care agencies, such as the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations have required hospitals and other medical facilities to create a list of unacceptable abbreviations. Many facilities are also discouraging the use of abbreviations in medical records and documentation. Standardization is paramount and will require practice changes for all healthcare providers.
Polyjuice Potion however, cannot be used on humans to take the form of animals. This may cause drinker to have a burning sensation as well as suffer disastrous effects of the potion. Therefore, I conclude that Polyjuice Potion is not advisable for students to attempt to make the potion, as it is an extremely complicated process and may go
Damaged skin make easier way for the virus in the surface invade into the body. An other way, you can get the HPV for touching someone's warts or contacting surface without protect, such as public showers or swimming pools. Actually, HPV infection is not exactly result in physically symptoms and even though you get the virus, your immune system defeats the virus before it has a chance to create any warts as I talked before. When warts do appear, they may vary in appearance depending on which HPV virus is involved. There are pictures shows different types warts are created by HPV infection.
