MEDICA 2019: See the invisible

Dear Sir or Madam,

Imaging has been showing so much more than just fractured bones for a long time now. X-ray is indeed still essential for medicine, but modern imaging is able to do so much more: from screening with 3D sonography to real-time CT pictures of the heart to functional imaging that shows how organs work at a molecular level. Take a look at our Trend Topic "See the Invisible" to learn more about today’s trends and what will influence imaging in the future.

Enjoy reading,

More patients, more examinations, more CT images – in radiology there is too much work for too few physicians. CT scans are evaluated in the shortest possible time, which leads to anomalies being overlooked. Artificial intelligence, on the other hand, works with constant speed and performance, which is why radiological routine increasingly relies on its support.

Cardiac Tissue Engineering: a heart out of the Petri dish


Image: Man with mouthguard and laboratory glasses holding Petri dish up; Copyright:
For patients waiting for donor organs, every day can mean the difference between life and death. Making things even more complicated is the fact that not every organ is a compatible match with the patient. It would mean enormous progress if we could grow organs from the patient's own cells in the lab. That's why patients with heart disease place big hope in tissue engineering. While some things are already possible in this area, other aspects might be an option in the future.
