    Less-invasive surgical techniques are being preferred in the treatment of eye conditions such as myopia, hyperopia, and presbyopia. This paper discusses clinical studies of a technique that falls on this category called conductive keratoplasty (CK). The goal of the CK procedure is to produce minor corneal surface changes that result in a decreased local radius of curvature. This procedure uses rad... View full abstract»

    Medical device manufacturers must comply with the Quality Systems Regulation (QSR) in order to market products in the United States. Therefore, if one wish to be an entrepreneur in medical devices or even just work in the medical device industry, an understanding of what the QSRs are about is necessary because violations of these regulations can lead to expensive legal entanglements. Although ther... View full abstract»

    The development of high-resolution positron emission tomography (PET) devices is an area of increasing interest to engineers and physicists. Because this technology is eminently translatable to the clinic, PET is becoming established as an invaluable - if not the premier - molecular imaging technique. This paper gives an overview of the clinical applications of PET and dual modality CT-PET systems... View full abstract»

    PET-based molecular-genetic imaging is part of a larger base of three imaging technologies (nuclear, magnetic resonance, and optical) incorporating methods that are established in molecular and cell biology. Most current molecular imaging strategies are "indirect", coupling a "reporter gene" with a complimentary "reporter probe". Reporter gene constructs driven by constitutive promoter elements ca...

    This paper reviews the impact of the Bayh-Dole Act of 1980 on the scientific community over the years. The policy encourages the utilization of inventions produced under federal funding. Universities were allowed to patent their scientific discoveries and set up companies to market them so that two worthy goals would be met; it would provide incentives for research as well as bringing the products...
