New treatment options with 3D microscopy

Dear Sir or Madam,

3D models are increasingly being used in medicine. By exact reconstructions of different areas of the body, structures can be better recognized and diseases can be treated in a more targeted way. A new imaging method in 3D now makes it possible to understand the causes of lymphedema. Read more about the VIPAR method in our current interview.

I wish you a motivated week

Triggers can be surgeries, injuries or genetic defects for example. A new microscopy technique could now also indicate the causes.

Point-of-care testing in the hospital – quality diagnostic results

Point-of-care testing is an integral part of medicine. It enables simple, automated testing that yields fast results. Hospitals have also started to increasingly use POCT diagnostic systems over the past few years. We are guests at the Greifswald University Hospital where patient-side rapid diagnostic tests have already been successfully integrated into daily hospital operations.
