Nanotechnology In Medicine: Huge Potential, But What Are The Risks? Nanotechnology, the manipulation of matter at the atomic and molecular scale to create materials with remarkably varied and new properties, is a rapidly expanding area of research with huge potential in many sectors, ranging from healthcare to construction and electronics.

Nanotechnology In Medicine: Huge Potential, But What Are The Risks?

In medicine, it promises to revolutionize drug delivery, gene therapy, diagnostics, and many areas of research, development and clinical application. This article does not attempt to cover the whole field, but offers, by means of some examples, a few insights into how nanotechnology has the potential to change medicine, both in the research lab and clinically, while touching on some of the challenges and concerns that it raises. What is Nanotechnology? The prefix "nano" stems from the ancient Greek for "dwarf". In science it means one billionth (10 to the minus 9) of something, thus a nanometer (nm) is is one billionth of a meter, or 0.000000001 meters. Surveillance Camera Benchmarking Report by eInfochips. Global surveillance camera market revenue is projected to reach $45 billion by 2019, with CAGR of 20% from 2015 to 2019.

Surveillance Camera Benchmarking Report by eInfochips

The video surveillance industry has undergone significant technological advances in terms of digitization, image quality & usage. Increasing demand for digital (IP) camera instead of analog, widespread usage of 4K image quality, video analytics, and integration with access control systems have shifted the paradigm of surveillance camera. Trends in Camera Design Increase Functionality. Higher resolution, more features and faster speeds are enabling novel camera technology while reducing imaging application costs.

Trends in Camera Design Increase Functionality

Michael McKay, PixeLink Commercially available camera sensors are shrinking, perhaps driven by the camera-phone craze. Now common are 3-μm pixels with megapixel sensors that measure less than half an inch. Although beneficial for compact cameras, such small sensors are not ideal for machine vision or microscopy. The smaller pixel size reduces sensitivity, increases noise and requires more expensive optics. Sensors also are becoming faster. Supporting the new sensors has necessitated changes in the electronic design of cameras. Along with image processing and calibration, improved electronics have enabled more camera functionality and the use of standard digital interfaces.

Shorten head pleaseVGA (video graphics array) cameras still dominate in machine vision, but interest in higher resolution is growing. Cameras in microscopy Meet the author. Telemedicine Might Be Bad For Dermatology. A patient receiving a dermatology diagnosis after an online consultation might do well to be skeptical, according to a study published this week in the journal JAMA Dermatology.

Telemedicine Might Be Bad For Dermatology

Though telemedicine is sometimes necessary for certain cases, researchers say patients dealing with the vague and impersonal world of online clinicians could miss out on proper care due to lax oversight, vague recommendations and misdiagnoses. Over the past decade, dermatologists have been at the forefront of adopting telemedicine. In 2015, 1.25 million people visited telemedicine sites for dermatology alone, and patients’ insurance covers an increasingly large proportion of such visits. But while telemedicine can bring medical expertise to people who live in remote areas and might not be able to regularly visit a physician, it could also mean third-party websites or apps connecting patients with questionable physicians they’ve never met in person.
