Implementation of Tech in Medico in 2022

You are currently viewing Implementation of Tech in Medico in 2022

With the growth of technology, It has imprinted its benefit in many fields. Similarly, it has helped to advance the medical field and if you are a medical student, this blog of terminal stack will come out the best reading time for you and will be beneficial in the future.

The use of technology here increases provider capabilities and patient access while improving the quality of life for some patients and saving the lives of others.

Here is the list of tech acquired by this field:

1.  Robotic Surgery:

Robotic surgery is a type of surgical procedure that is done using robotic systems. This technology provides the surgeon with a 10x magnified, high-definition, 3D image of the body’s intricate anatomy.

Benefits of this technology:

1. Reduced post-surgery pain.

2. Increased precision for more accurate joint replacements.

3. Less risk of infection.

Cost of this: A single robot costs about $2 million. Some of the attachments that go on the arms are disposable. And robotic surgery generally costs anywhere from $3,000 to $6,000 more than traditional laparoscopic surgery.

2. CRISPR:(Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats)

Repetitive DNA sequences, called CRISPR, were observed in bacteria with “spacer” DNA sequences in between the repeats that exactly match viral sequences. It was subsequently discovered that bacteria transcribe these DNA elements to RNA upon viral infection. With CRISPR/Cas, it’s easy to disrupt a targeted gene. 

Benefits of this:

1. Corrects The Genetic Errors That Cause Disease. 

2. Eliminates The Microbes That Cause Disease. 

3. Eradicates The Planet’s Most Dangerous Pest.

Cost of this :

In the past, it might have cost thousands of dollars and weeks or months of fiddling to alter a gene. Now it might cost just $75 and only take a few hours…

3. 3-D printing:

The technique has been applied to (and utilized by) many different industries, including medical technology. Often medical imaging techniques, such as X-rays, computed tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, and ultrasounds are used to produce the original digital model, which is subsequently fed into the 3D printer.

Benefits of this:

1. Improve  lives, one customized part at a time

2. It’s eco-friendly and allows for new shapes. 

3. It is being used for surgery, with replicas of hearts and organs being used to help surgeons prep. 

Cost of this :

It has been forecast that its worth will be $3.5bn by 2025, compared to $713.3m in 2016. The industry’s compound annual growth rate is supposed to reach 17.7% between 2017 and 2025.

4.  Cancer Immunotherapy :

Cancer immunotherapy (sometimes called immuno oncology) is the artificial stimulation of the immune system to treat cancer, the immune system detects and destroys abnormal cells and most likely prevents or curbs the growth of many cancers. These cells, called tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes or TILs, are a sign that the immune system is responding to the tumor.

Benefits:

1. Boost immune cells to help them eliminate cancer.

2. High accuracy, specificity, and targeting of immunotherapy. 

3. Your cancer may be less likely to return.

Technology( technological) Cost :

The cost of each session is between ₹1-1.5 lakh and ranges as per clinical terms.

5.  Augmented Reality :

Augmented reality (AR) is an interactive experience of a real-world environment where the objects that reside in the real world are enhanced by computer-generated perceptual information. To understand it in detail you can have an overlook on our another blog:

Benefits:

1. It creates unique digital experiences that blend the best of digital and physical worlds

2..It reduces the line between the real world and the virtual world 

3. It can be used by anyone including mentally and physically disabled individuals.

Cost of technology:

Augmented reality app will cost you between US$25,000 and US$35,000, taking two or three months of development.

6. Nanomedicine :

The application of nanotechnology for medical purposes has been termed nanomedicine. It targets the manufacturing of ‘smart drugs’ using the techniques of nanotechnology with the help of nanotools and nanoparticles. 

Benefits:

1. It is providing improvements to drug delivery for therapy. 

2. It increases the time period in which a drug remains active in the body. 

3. It has improved efficacy, bioavailability, dose–response, targeting ability, personalization, and safety. 

Cost of this :

The average cost per dose of anticancer drug doxorubicin was $62-$162 compared to $5,594 for Doxil, a nanoparticle containing doxorubicin.
