Presentation Transcript

  1. MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY

  2. DEFINITION: MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY IS THE PRACTICAL APPLICATION OF THE SCIENTIFIC BODY OF KNOWLEDGE PRODUCED BY BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH.

  3. WHEN GROWTH IN SCIENTIFIC KNOWLEDGE IS DEPLOYED FOR THE PURPOSE OF IMPROVING MEDICAL CARE, IT LEADS TO:

  4. ADVANCED TECHNIQUES FOR A MORE PRECISE MEDICAL DIAGNOSIS THAN WHAT HAD BEEN POSSIBLE EARLIER,

  5. MORE EFFECTIVE AND LESS INVASIVE THERAPEUTIC AND PREVENTIVE MEDICAL PROCEDURES;

  6. MORE ADVANCED EQUIPMENT, • MORE ADVANCED CARE DELIVERY SETTINGS AND PROGRAMS TO FACILITATE THE DELIVERY OF HEALTH SERVICES.

  7. TYPES OF MEDICAL TECHNOLOGIES

  8. DIAGNOSTIC: • CAT SCANNER • FETAL MONITOR

  9. COMPUTERIZED ELECTROCARDIOGRAPHY AUTOMATED CLINICAL LABORATORIES MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING (MRI)

  10. AMBULATORY BLOOD PRESSURE MONITOR

  11. SURVIVAL (LIFE SAVING): • INTENSIVE CARE UNIT (ICU) • CARDIOPULMONARY RESUSCITATION (CPR) • BONE MARROW TRANSPLANT

  12. LIVER TRANSPLANT • AUTOLOGOUS BONE MARROW TRANSPLANT

  13. ILLNESS MANAGEMENT: • RENAL DIALYSIS • PACEMAKER

  14. PTCA (ANGIOPLASTY) • STEREOTACTIC CINGULOTOMY

  15. HIP JOINT REPLACEMENT • ORGAN TRANSPLANT • LITHOTRIPTER

  16. PREVENTION: • IMPLANTABLE AUTOMATIC CARDIOVERTER-DEFIBRILATOR

  17. Artificial Heart

  18. Infusion Pump

  19. MRI SCAN OF THE BRAIN

  20. ARTIFICIAL HIP

  21. PROSTHETICS

  22. FACILITIES AND CLINICAL SETTINGS: • HOSPITALS • SATELLITE CENTERS

  23. CLINICAL LABORATORIES • SUBACUTE CARE UNITS • MODERN HOME HEALTH

  24. ORGANIZATIONAL DELIVERY STRUCTURE: • MANAGED CARE • INTEGRATED DELIVERY NETWORKS

  25. PROTON BEAM FACILITY • SHANDS HEALTHCARE, JACKSONVILLE • JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA

  26. IN FISCAL YEAR 1999-2000 THE STATE OF FLORIDA FUNDED $6,000,000 TO SUPPORT THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PROTON BEAM FACILITY IN JACKSONVILLE.

  27. Proton Beam Generator

  28. THE ESTIMATED COST OF BUILDING A PROTON BEAM FACILITY IS $104,000,000 TO BE EXPENDED OVER THE NEXT THREE YEARS.

  29. No, its not Stargate

  30. BASED ON THE INCIDENCES OF NEW CASES OF CANCER YEARLY IN FLORIDA ALONE, THE FACILITY WOULD EXPECT TO TREAT 2,500 – 2,800 NEW PATIENTS BY THE END OF THE 5TH YEAR OF OPERATION.

  31. WHAT IS PROTON CANCER TREATMENT?

  32. PROTON BEAM THERAPY IS AN INNOVATIVE CONCEPT IN THE FIELD OF CANCER THERAPY AND DIFFERS GREATLY FROM TODAY’S CONVENTIONAL THERAPIES.

  33. CONVENTIONAL CANCER RADIATION TREATMENT UTILIZES X-RAYS AND ELECTRON BEAMS THAT LOSE MOST OF THEIR ENERGY AS THEY TRAVEL THROUGH HEALTHY BODY TISSUE.

  34. THE HEALTHY TISSUE IS FREQUENTLY DAMAGED LEADING TO SERIOUS SIDE EFFECTS.

  35. PROTON ENERGY, HOWEVER, CAN PRODUCE A UNIFORM RADIATION DOSE THAT CAN BE DELIVERED TO DESTROY THE TUMOR WHILE EFFECTING VIRTUALLY NO INJURY TO NEARBY HEALTHY TISSUE.

  36. IMPROVED RESULTS FOR PATIENTS

  37. MORE THAN 20,000 PATIENTS HAVE RECEIVED PROTON BEAM TREATMENT IN RESEARCH INSTITUTIONS AROUND THE WORLD. RESULTS ACHIEVED WITH DIFFICULT TO TREAT TUMORS SHOW THE BENEFIT OF PROTON IRRADIATION.

  38. The Trilogy Machine

  39. The Trilogy linear accelerator can treat cancer anywhere in the body. • Quite simply, it targets tumors more precisely, delivers a high dose of radiation and requires fewer treatment sessions.

  40. What makes it special? • Flexibility – treatment can be customized to target many different types of cancers, in many locations. • Accuracy – Radiation beams match the three-dimension shape of the tumor with a high degree of accuracy.

  41. Higher Doses – Radiation goes only to the cancer cells sparing the health cells surrounding the tumor site. • Fewer sessions • Fewer side effects

  42. On board imager (OBI) helps synchronize treatment with the patient’s breathing cycles. Targets tumor more precisely, while sparing health tissue.

  43. Gamma Knife

  44. Gamma Knife surgery is a minimally invasive alternative to conventional brain surgery. Considered the "gold standard" of radiosurgery technologies, this revolutionary surgical procedure allows safe and effective treatment for many types of intracranial tumors and vascular malformations. In fact, the Gamma Knife can often treat conditions once considered inoperable.

  45. Gamma Knife is safe – no incision. • Precise – targets exact area. • Cost Effective – covered by Medicare and most insurance companies • Relative pain free • Successful
