Nowadays, modern medical technology plays an important role in ensuring that surgical interventions are successful. This also includes imaging procedures that help to keep the right perspective in the operating theatre. Also this year at MEDICA you can inform yourself extensively about ultrasound, x-ray, CT and other imaging possibilities.
12. - 15. November 2018, Congress Center Düsseldorf CCD Süd
Sonography, hygiene, telemedicine in practice, the preparation of hospitals for special damage situations - these are just some of the topics that will be the focus of MEDICA ACADEMY 2018. The training event offers physicians and medical specialists the perfect opportunity for further training and will take place over four days at the CCD Congress Center Düsseldorf / CCD Süd - parallel to the world's leading trade fair for medical technology, MEDICA.
The advanced training courses take place in German!
12. - 15. November 2018, Hall 15, Stand 15E56 und 15E60
The MEDICA HEALTH IT FORUM is your platform for trends, innovations and exchange.
More than 120 speakers will explore the possibilities and limits of digital health solutions in brand-new panels at the Red Stage.
At the Green Stage, companies share their visions of an IT-based health landscape in a variety of interactive formats. In addition, you will find themed exhibits on the adjoining exhibition area and thus receive a comprehensive picture of the digital health scene.
Precision surgery thanks to informative hyperspectral imaging
When body tissue is reconnected during a tumor operation in the gastrointestinal tract, surgeons need information about the current state of these so-called anastomoses. The new, non-invasive hyperspectral imaging technology now makes it possible to measure the crucial parameters during surgery and thereby increase surgical precision.
The MEDICA CONNECTED HEALTHCARE FORUM in hall 15 is focusing on new technologies and is showcasing innovative solutions from the Internet of Things that are transforming the healthcare industry. From the smart prosthesis to the intelligent asthma patch, and fitness trackers, the market for mobile and connected solutions is growing. Not only do they improve the processes and care of patients, but they also enable the patient to actively "manage" their own health by monitoring and analyzing their own vital signs using the intelligent medical and fitness equipment and devices.
And NEWat the forum: The MEDICA DISRUPT Startup Sessions. Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 13:00 h to 14:00 h and Wednesday from 12:20 h to 13:00 h, a total of over 50 start-ups will present their innovations.
News on imaging supplies and surgery are covered in the following lectures:
With the help of surgical navigation systems, prostheses or implants can be better inserted. During the procedure, surgeons can see exactly where they need to operate on a screen. Just like a navigation system in the car, navigation in the OR guides you precisely to your destination. At the Uniklinik RWTH Aachen we can find out what advantages this has for physicians and patients.
