Imaging, hygiene, surgical procedures, the avoidance of over-supply and under-supply in general practice, medical innovations - these are just some of the topics that are the focus of MEDICA ACADEMY. The training event offers physicians from a wide range of disciplines the perfect opportunity for further education and will be held in the Congress Center Düsseldorf CCD South on four days, parallel to the world's leading trade fair for medical technology, MEDICA.
Optical coherence tomography - Looking into the vessel with light
The cardiology department at the Clinical Center Dortmund has used optical coherence tomography for many years. The technique can be used to examine the inside of the coronary arteries.

Instant treatment is absolute vital for patients developing sepsis. Providing a specific therapy early on is key. To manage this the pathogenic organisms need to be identified accurately. But a fungal sepsis can still be a hard nut to crack.
Pathology: detecting lymphedema with 3D microscopy
According to the WHO, 300 million people throughout the world are affected by lymphedema. Triggers can be surgeries, injuries or genetic defects for example. A new microscopy technique could now also indicate the causes.
CT coronary angiograms – three-dimensional insight into the heart
Until now, catheter-based coronary angiography was considered state-of-the-art for the diagnosis of coronary heart disease. Yet this method is not without risk, after all it is an invasive procedure. An exam using a computer tomography scanner (CT) - the so-called CT coronary angiogram - represents a low-risk alternative.
Coronary heart disease can cause heart arrhythmia, heart insufficiency or heart attack. All the more important is an early, reliable diagnosis that helps to treat it and to reduce risk factors. But what is the best method for diagnosis? A recent study found that functional imaging methods can often spare patients the trouble and risks of a coronary angiography.
