Contribution may be by submission or invitation, and suggestions for special issues and publications are welcome.
An ideal paper will combine theory with experiment and papers published will range from theoretical modelling papers, computer based analysis and decision support to experimental clinical papers.
We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause you. Incorporation of information communication technology in health care has gained wide acceptance in the last two decades.
Developing countries are also incorporating information communication technology into the health system including the implementation of electronic medical records in major hospitals and the use of mobile health in rural community-based health interventions.
Inorganic nanoparticles of materials synthesized from metals such as gold or silver and ranging in size from 1 to 100 nm are commonly used as contrast agents in in vivo tumor imaging and as molecular probes for the study of cellular or subcellular function.
Quantum dots fabricated from semiconductor materials are similarly valued as alternatives to fluorescent proteins, organic dyes, or radioisotopes.As Med Device Online’s executive editor Jim Pomager recently blogged, increased life expectancy will fuel big increases in the incidence of age-related conditions such as heart disease, dementia, stroke, pulmonary disorders, and cancer.Wireless technologies capable of detecting and treating the earliest signs of disease will become front-line defenses against these leading causes of death, while devices that help patients manage their own chronic conditions more effectively will dramatically improve their quality of life while reducing the demand for more advanced treatments, he said.For a sense of how these trends are manifesting themselves today, here is a selective overview of five of the most talked-about directions in medical device technologies of the past year.Nanotechnology is fulfilling medical science’s need for more precise treatments that are less invasive, less costly, and less complicated to administer than traditional methods.Computer knowledge and utilization habits of health professionals, especially those who work in primary health centers, were found to be low.As technology continues to drive the pace of progress in biomedical research and healthcare, the traditional line between engineering and medical science grows ever thinner.IJMEI publishes original papers, review papers, technical reports, case studies, conference reports, management reports, book reviews, notes, commentaries, and news.Special Issues devoted to important topics pertaining medical engineering, clinical research, medical informatics, disease modelling, biomedical technology, human genome, bioengineering, life sciences, medical technology, clinical decision making systems, organ modelling and simulation, data mining, and knowledge engineering will also be published occasionally.That translates into better patient outcomes, lower healthcare costs, and wider access to healthcare services in under-resourced parts of the world.Medical nanodevices and materials are already in widespread use.
