  • Molecular Imaging Probes Spy on the Body's Inner Workings: Miniaturized Microscopes, Microbubbles, 7- and 15-T Scanners, Diffusion-Tensor MRI, and Other Molecular-Imaging Technologies Are Pushing Molecular Imaging into the Future

    Molecular imaging is one of the hot-button areas within medical imaging. This technology employs imaging techniques in concert with molecular probes, or biomarkers, that together noninvasively spy on cellular function and molecular processes. In some cases, this technology may be able to detect the very earliest stages of diseases and eliminate them on the spot. This paper discusses how miniaturiz... View full abstract»

    While the practice of ethical pondering has a formal academic history more than several thousand years old, and its pedigree within the human heart is undoubtedly much older, the somewhat specialized field of bioethics goes back approximately only 50 years in the United States. And while practitioners in the field-known as much for their painstaking pondering as for their acrimonious tendency to d... View full abstract»

    Recently, implantable brain-machine interfaces (BMIs) for the severely disabled have generated a great deal of excitement in the biomedical community, and clinical trials investigating their use as communication aids have already begun in the United States (these trials are discussed in the "Existing Devices and Trials" section). While the hypothetical societal implications of such devices are oft... View full abstract»

  • Reverse Engineering by Design : Using History to Teach

    Publication Year: 2013, Page(s):33 - 38
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (6947 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This article discusses reverse engineering as a common approach to understanding design components with strong historical antecedents. The following are also highlighted: the original Kolff drum design; Brigham-Kolff drum; and Baxter-Travenol twin coil. It is concluded that historic reverse-engineering projects have proven a viable engineering education venue. Such projects can be adapted to virtu... View full abstract»

    An understanding of manufacturing operations allows biomedical engineers to design products that can be manufactured at a reasonable cost. The ability to apply lean manufacturing and design for manufacturability principles can help speed up assembly operations, avoid repetitive motion injuries among production workers, and reduce waste and scrap, resulting in time and cost savings. Students need t... View full abstract»
