Virotherapy or the virus against cancer

As the world leaders in the field of oncology are offering new methods and drugs for cancer treatment, ordinary people face difficulties to get things straight; understand, what is going on with them, and, what is more important, what will happen, if certain treatment method is applied; what will be the response of the body; will it be possible to stop the destructive process or at least pause it for some time. At the certain point you need to undertake all the responsibility and make the decision. It is the question of life, and you are not able to take something back or change something. Affected cells are multiplying really quickly, and the body is virtually destroying itself. The immune system is not functioning; it is not able to operate normally, because it does not distinguish the „good” cells from the „bad” ones. This is a well-known situation for the patients… It develops especially fast, if the diagnosis is melanoma. But the desire to live is so strong… However, if there is a problem, then the solution will also come. Our civilization managed to overcome various epidemics, which took more lives, than all the wars together. It will also be possible to overcome cancer. Moreover, we already have the necessary medicine.

More than half of the century ago, already in Soviet times, the virus, which is able to affect the malignant cells, was found. The brilliance of this method is that this virus is live, completely safe for healthy cells and the human body in general, namely, it cures, and is taken out of the body really quick. But it is not all. This virus is also an immunomodulator, which helps to boost the person’s own immune system. The medicine of the future, like nano-technologies. The patient during the therapy is able to maintain his usual daily routine – being home, doing ordinary things, perhaps, even working. No side-effects, no complex manipulations, no invasive procedures. The process of the treatment is almost not felt by the patient. The injections maybe implemented by any nurse, as no special preparation is needed. Doctors may handle the monitoring of the patient’s condition distantly. Just regular examinations to compare the results and choose the individual treatment scheme and rare consultations. It sounds too easy and simple, doesn’t it? But the rest depends on the patient himself, because such disease as oncology requires a lot of inner strength, the desire to live and fight. Not everyone can win this fight, not everyone can harness all of his willpower and say „I can and I will overcome cancer”.

Latvian doctors have big experience in treatment of various kinds of oncological diseases at different stages. The medicine has undergone clinical studies, is licensed and certified. Patients from more than 50 countries already are using this medicine. This small vial is prolonging live, improving the body’s condition and not harming it. This medicine has no analogues and is not very much known yet. However, the most important is to start the therapy on time the earlier possible to increase the chances for winning the battle against cancer. Latvian doctors, which are, by the way, the most experienced virotherapy specialists in the world, are doing their best to make virotherapy with Riga virus available for all the patients.

It is possible to receive consultation online – just send your clinical record and the lab tests. It is completely free of charge. To start the treatment it is necessary to come to Riga for some days, undergo the complex examination and make the necessary blood work. The following treatment process is very individual and depends on the stage of the disease and the condition of the patient. Currently, this treatment method, which has almost no counterindications, but, in turn, many positive outcomes, is becoming more popular in the world and increasing chances for survival.

If you or your loved ones are facing this disease, use this information. It may help to save someone’s life.

Women’s Health Care Is Paramount To A Healthy Community

Medical professionals are fully aware that taking care of the unique needs of women is vital to the health of a community. Hospitals in Illinois offer comprehensive services for the needs of women during all the varying stages of life. One thing they do well is provide a warm and inviting setting for many of their diagnostic and treatment facilities. These facilities provide the privacy needed for women to maintain a level of individuality during treatments and visits. Some of the services provided in the women’s diagnostic center include breast health programs, mammography using a computer aided diagnostic system (sometimes referred to as CAD), stereotactic biopsy, infertility services, four dimensional ultrasound, one of the best cardiac health programs in the state, menopause, arthritis and osteoporosis screening and testing to name a few.

Some other services provided by hospitals include the weight control help including the bariatrics program and the cardiac health program. The center focuses on monitoring health and for those that need it the women will find state of the art care and surgery options. The latest in heart bypass surgery includes the use of a da Vinci robot to ease the trauma delivered to the patient through a number of refinements in the surgical procedure. With the assistance of a robot the surgeon can make finer and smaller incisions that lead to less blood loss and less scarring. The robot also offers many more benefits to the patient and is one of the valuable tools used to assist those women who need to be repaired before moving on to living a healthy life.

Another valuable tool is the use of a digital mammography system. This advanced diagnostic tool is a part of the comprehensive breast imaging program that includes screening and diagnostic mammography, computer-aided detection, breast ultrasound, non-invasive outpatient breast biopsies, needle localizations and breast MRI with computer aided design equipment. The advanced tools have unsurpassed quality images that lead to early detection and diagnosis of breast cancer, reduced patient exam time and decreased number of mammogram callbacks. All of this leading to a healthier society of women. Of course these are just the ones that stand out due to a focus on helping women through all of the different stages of their life. Some centers also offer all of the standard treatments available to both women and men.

E-Lab and E-Diagnostics Would Be New Innovative Methods in Cloud Computing Technology

By the time you read through this article, a new Cloud Computing protocol would be born.

Cloud computing is a complex system of data compilation, processing and storage which allows the end-user to easily access information without knowing the physical location of the service provider or configuration of the computer system. The cloud computing set-up along with online Voice and Video streaming facilities are veritable tools that make the birth of e-lab and e-diagnostics protocols the next frontier of internet development.

Here is an interesting snippet on the future of cloud computing.

Firstly, let’s define e-lab. It means an electronic laboratory that operates via the World Wide Web.

Presently, a typical laboratory consists of a room or building where scientific equipment or chemicals are kept. Within the confines of the laboratory, scientists conduct tests, teach or perform experiments and treat illnesses.

The constant use of equipment and chemicals by scientists necessitate costly purchase, transportation and maintenance in order to provide fast-track, competitive and cutting edge services to health-care professionals, scientists, end-users and beneficiaries.

Therefore, there is an urgent need to make laboratory more cost effective by developing the e-lab.

To measure soil acidity for instance, a pH meter is required. The price of this device ranges in tens of dollars. However, rather than purchasing a pH meter, a less costly e-lab biotechnology electrode would be provided to the end-user. When this device is immersed in a solution, it would measure the pH as encrypted information through a microprocessor in any portable computerized device, e.g. cell-phone or laptop. The digital information could then be uploaded onto the internet where the encrypted information would be processed by the e-lab service provider into a visually readable pH data. A disposable or re-usable bio-tech pH electrode might be provided.

The above-mentioned internet compatibility would be ideal for certain scientific tests such as screening of blood fluid components, eye defects, enzyme activity, optical, sonic and temperature measurements.

Secondly, e-diagnostics could be defined as the use of the internet as a source for processing digital diagnostic information by cloud computing.

This innovative technique could be illustrated by re-inventing cutting edge medical equipment such as the CT-Scan or X-ray computed Tomography device which requires a heavy purchase, maintenance and overhead cost.

CT-Scan is used as a veritable tool for prevention-cum-screening of cancers, heart and bone diseases. it is a necessity in any modern hospital setting.

Although the usage of the CT-Scan has increased exponentially over the last three decades in many countries, its use is still highly restricted to affluent neighborhoods and nations.

However, with the coming of e-diagnostics, this expensive machine would be separated into two parts. The first part or ‘in-house component’ would contain the X-ray Tomography reader-cum-data-collector.

An ‘e-diagnostics-cloud-computing component’ which would be controlled by the service provider would be the second part. In this device, the data uploaded from the CT-Scan would be sent through the internet to the network of the service provider where it would be processed for billing, 3-D display of various bodily structures and other user-friendly features.

Separation of the CT-Scan’s mainframe from the data processing unit would allow service providers to charge low rates for each data processed through their cloud computing networks.

Therefore, scientists who study biological and paleontological specimen at remote locations around the globe would be saved the hassle of having to purchase, maintain or move a large and expensive CT-Scan about. All they would require would be a cheaper and lighter ‘in-house component’ that coverts tomography readings of human structures into encrypted digital information. Such digitized data could be sent electronically through the internet to the service provider who in turn uses his e-diagnostics tools within seconds to send back printable pictures, videos or graphics from processed data.

Couldn’t this technology be applied to other expensive scientific techno-behemoths? Of course, it’s possible.

The advent of the e-lab’s and e-diagnostics’ protocol at a yet to be determined future date might bring succor to the countless number of people who are yet to benefit from the versatility of a much awaited but yet to be re-invented e-lab-CT-Scan or any other colossal scientific equipment.

Advantages of e-lab & e-diagnostics

• Less expensive and more light-weight equipment.
• Lesser amount of chemicals required for tests.
• Simplified and reduced maintenance cost.
• Affordable screening procedure.
• Accessibility from remote locations.
• Easy equipment mobility.
• Convenient.
• User friendly.
• Revolutionize the field of bio-informatics and laboratory technology.
• Possibility of designing portable electronic devices that could serve as analytical and diagnostic tools.

Disadvantages of the proposal

• Hosts and service providers might have control over the medical records or research data of patients and scientists respectively.

• Health-care statistics or research data of developing countries may be monitored or tinkered with by web-hosts or service providers in the developed world.

• It may cause capital flight and under-utilization of laboratory technicians in many parts of the world as many Do-It-Yourself screening and test kits become ubiquitous.

To allay the fears of governments, service providers and end-users, a new internet protocol might have to be drafted and endorsed by all member states of the United Nations.
Let the race of developing the e-lab & e-diagnostics program’s application, platform, storage and infrastructure begin. Then servers and clients can enjoy a new era of the internet.

How to Become a Diagnostic Medical Sonographer in North Dakota

North Dakota has a dynamic health care industry that is rapidly growing as the state’s population grows in 2013. There is a strong quality hospital system that includes St. Alexius Medical Center in Bismarck, the Sanford Medical Center in Bismarck, and the Sanford Fargo Medical Center in Fargo, to name just three. Diagnostic Medical Sonographers will find many new career opportunities in 2014 and the following years as the health care system expands to accommodate the economic boom generated by the oil industry, which is expected to last for many years.

Requirements and Steps to Become a Sonographer in North Dakota

Becoming an ultrasound technician requires completing classes selected from a list of courses supplied by the sonography school. Coursework is then supplemented with hands-on clinical training. Where the clinic hours are completed depends on the school attended. Some schools have designated clinical facilities where sonography students must work. However, an online ultrasound program may allow students to complete clinical training hours at a local hospital or medical center. The location of clinical training is an important consideration when selecting schools to attend.

The requirements to become a Diagnostic Medical Sonographer will depend on the school selected and the type of degree pursued. It can take one to four years to complete a program because of the variety of degrees that can be earned. For example, in 2014 students can choose to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Diagnostic Medical Sonography, which will take 4 or more years if entering the program with only a high school diploma. An Associate’s degree in Diagnostic Medical Sonography can usually be earned in 2 years. A certificate in Diagnostic Medical Sonography is typically earned in programs designed for professionals who already have an allied health degree, have completed a hospital approved program, or are already ARDMS, CCI or ARRT registered.

Selecting a school requires careful consideration of several factors that include the following:

Is the sonography program accredited by the CAAHEP?
How many years has the program been operating?
What percentage of graduating students pass the ARDMS exams on their first attempt?
What are the credentials of the faculty?
What percentage of graduates find employment in their desired field?
What support systems are in place in terms of counseling and access to faculty?
What degrees and concentrations are offered by the school?
Where does the clinical training take place?

Attending a school with a CAAHEP-accredited sonography program is important if a student wants to become a Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer (RDMS), a Registered Vascular Technologist (RVT) or a Registered Diagnostic Cardiac Sonographer (RDCS). Credentialing is increasingly becoming a requirement for employment.

Since states do not require licensing, the credentials serve as proof of knowledge and training. Students must complete certain requirements before they are even eligible to take the exams, which is why they should choose a CAAHEP-accredited program.

Options for Schooling

North Dakota students who want to complete a CAAHEP-accredited sonography program will have to choose distance education or attending a school in another state. North Dakota is one of a few states that does not have a CAAHEP-accredited sonography program.

There is a complete list of Diagnostic Medical Sonography schools at the school directory. South Dakota and Minnesota border North Dakota. Minnesota has 4 CAAHEP-accredited programs, South Dakota has one CAAHEP-accredited sonography program. Among the various schools and programs, students will find an excellent choice of degrees and concentrations in Diagnostic Medical Sonography.

The CAAHEP has also accredited three online or distance education programs for sonography education.

Washburn University in Topeka, Kansas has been delivering a distance learning program in Diagnostic Medical Sonography for over 11 years. The program ensures students complete the necessary didactic and clinical training needed to sit for the ARDMS or CCI exams. The clinical component of the program can usually be completed in a medical center or research center that is near the student’s home or near a location convenient for the student.

Jackson College in Jackson, Michigan also has a CAAHEP-accredited program. The school makes it clear that there are more students applying than there are available program slots, so it is important to plan well ahead if this is the school of choice. Jackson College has three programs with concentrations in general, vascular and cardiac sonography that are three or four semesters long, depending on which concentration is chosen. Jackson College will also work with students to find a qualified facility where clinical training can be conveniently accessed.

The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee also offers online coursework. The CAAHEP lists the school as newly accredited for a distance learning program. There are two programs leading to a Bachelor’s degree. The professional program enabling students to earn a Bachelor of Science in Diagnostic Imaging is for people who are already worked in the medical field. The Diagnostic Imaging Completion Program paves an educational path for earning a four year degree which takes into account work experience to date. Anyone who is ARMDS, CCI or ARRT registered, or has completed a hospital-based program or Associate’s degree within the last 10 years, can apply. The University website indicates that most students can complete the entire program online.

The second degree offered by the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee is a Bachelor of Science degree with a Diagnostic Medical Sonography sub major. The program requires didactic coursework and clinical training. However, the clinical portion must be completed at Aurora St. Luke’s, the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics, or the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Many of the classes can be taken online, but North Dakota residents will have to be willing to temporarily relocate during clinical training.

Diagnostic Technology Innovations in Animal Health Care

Animal health care has become an increasingly important market for the veterinary sector when it comes to products and care provision services. It has offered a lot of windows to the private sector and has given way to the mainstream of how animal healthcare is managed in a global market. On this respect the debate about the requirements of animal health care and how it is met by veterinary providers is increasing. How are animal needs met? What are the adaptations being made in the solutions provided to improve the state of animal health care in the country?

Pet owners in the 20th century have vastly evolved from the casual groomer of the old days. A lot of pet owners are doing whatever it takes to provide the best care and quality of living for their pets. A surprising 10% of the medicine distribution scale in the United States alone is attributed to animal treatment. This is just one of the medical scopes that animal health care has advanced on through the years, and the trend is replicating in other aspects of medical diagnostics and wellness promotion in animals.

Radiological diagnostics such as X-rays play a crucial role in the promotion of animal health care. Even more, veterinary medicine and animal hospital offer this as more pet owners take advantage of this diagnostic exam in making sure their pets are getting top of the line treatment and early diagnosis for diseases. Digital imaging systems are now being developed specific to animal health care; Computerized Radiography and Direct Radiography are now becoming popular as a diagnostic process for detecting tumors and anomalies in animals. With the new technology being groomed to cater to Animal Health Care needs, you now see automated tools that give digital imaging in a matter of seconds.

Dental medicine in Animal Health Care is another avenue that is receiving much improvements and mainstream technology to increase the interest of pet owners. Gum disease is a leading problem for a lot of pets and now, Dental treatment in every area of Animal Oto-Pharyngeal Science can be explored with diagnostic technology. Mobile wireless panels used as X-rays are now brought to patient homes, and small digital plates are becoming very popular for veterinary diagnostic centers to increase the amount of convenience for pet owners seeking dental treatment for their pets.

This is just the start of the technological revolution in Animal Health Care, with the increase in global marketing and awareness programs for the importance of early pet disease detection more and more companies are providing innovative diagnostic solutions for veterinary medicine to use.
