The Effects of Technology on Biomedicine

INTRODUCTION

Biomedicine is a branch of medical sciences that ties biology and clinical practice together. Biomedicine or medical biology is a major facet of modern health care and lab diagnostics. Biomedicine and biotechnology go hand in hand, with that being said, technology has a great impact on the advancement of biomedicine. With the invention of new technologies and production of new products, the biological sciences have seen great advancements over the past 30 years. It is now becoming more prominent for scientist to apply biological engineering and biotechnology

Clinical studies have tended to benefit from newly developed biomaterials and technologies for therapy and diagnostics, as well as medical instruments. Scientists have evaluated the influence of polymer-based devices on cell surfaces at the final products level, also the polymers used in regenerative medicine. Plasma treated materials have had an important role in medicine. Plasma treated materials are undergoing fast development. Although the undesired adverse effects of nanotechnological products, also the ethical aspects that have to be solved, nanomedicine uses tools and devices ranging from size 1 to 100 nm and has had an increasing impact on diagnostics and pharmacology (Berger, …show more content…
An application of technology that has had great effects on biomedicine is the application of Terahertz (THz) technology. Detecting diseases to make diagnostics more efficient and improved imaging to recognize tumors more efficiently are the more important THz medical applications. Out of the multiple medical applications with THz technology, tumor and cavity identification get the most attention, however THz technology is still a new area, it takes a lot of time to get approval and gather the necessary data on human and animal subjects (Siegel, 2004). The instrumentation for the endoscopic and radio-metric applications is not
