The Role of Technology in Modern Medicine
- 2. Electronic technologies or computers that are incorporated into items of clothing and accessories which can comfortably be worn on the body.
- 6. Medical care designed to optimize efficiency or therapeutic benefit for particular groups of patients, especially by genetic or molecular analysis.
- 10. The study of all of a person's genes (the genome), including interactions of those genes with each other and with the person's environment.
- 11. The current state of medical knowledge and practice, involving the use of drugs, surgical operations, and the latest technology to treat disease and injury.
- 12. The remote diagnosis and treatment of patients by means of telecommunications technology.
- 13. The action or process of making a physical object from a three-dimensional digital model, typically by laying down many thin layers of a material in succession.
- 14. The application of scientific knowledge for practical purposes, especially in industry.
- 15. Digital version of a patient’s paper chart, real-time, patient-centered records that make information available instantly and securely to authorized users.
- 1. The use of data, statistical algorithms, and machine learning techniques to identify the likelihood of future outcomes based on historical data.
- 3. The simulation of human intelligence in machines that are programmed to think like humans and mimic their actions.
- 4. Artificial body parts that replace a part that is missing.
- 5. The computer-generated simulation of a three-dimensional image or environment that can be interacted with in a seemingly real or physical way by a person using special electronic equipment.
- 7. A method to perform surgery using very small tools attached to a robotic arm.
- 8. The branch of technology that deals with dimensions and tolerances of less than 100 nanometers, especially the manipulation of individual atoms and molecules.
- 9. The exploitation of biological processes for industrial and other purposes, especially the genetic manipulation of microorganisms for the production of antibiotics, hormones, etc.
