Shortness of breath can be measured – pulmonary exercise testing
When a patient often suffers from shortness of breath, general practitioners, internists and even pneumologists are not always able to find the cause directly – since many factors control how patients themselves perceive shortness of breath. Pulmonary exercise testing and blood gas analyses refine diagnosis and provide more clues about the causes. At MEDICA 2014, three lung specialists explained how shortness of breath can be measured.
Rescue operation on the patient simulator - Practicing for an emergency
When an emergency call is answered by the dispatcher things need to move fast. The emergency response team should get to its destination as quickly as possible – and take care of the patient as a well-oiled machine. It is crucial that all team members remain calm, knowing that everyone knows what they need to do. ISIMED offers training courses for experts in Dresden to prepare them for an emergency response.

7 Tesla high field tomography: imaging in HD
Ultra high field imaging makes extremely high-resolution images possible. But this is not the only advantage in comparison to 1.5 and 3 Tesla tomography. The 7 Tesla MRI supersedes the use of contrast media because it natively provides images in HD quality. Nevertheless, it is only used in research so far. Dr. Lale Umutlu and Prof. Harald Quick want to change that.
Cancer research – physical plasmas to combat tumor cells
When a tumor is removed, single cells or cell clusters can remain at the wound edges. They could eventually make another surgery necessary. Prof. Hans-Robert Metelmann and Dr. Christian Seebauer outline in our video how physical plasmas could be used here in the future. Dr. Kai Masur from the Leibniz Institute for Plasma Science and Technology e.V. (INP Greifswald) explains how plasmas turn off tumor cells.
