    Team finds that drug used for another disease slows progression of Parkinson’s

    SOURCE October 25, 2014 A new study from UCLA found that a drug being evaluated to treat an entirely different disorder helped slow the progression of Parkinson’s disease in mice. The study, published in the October edition of the journal Neurotherapeutics, found that the drug, AT2101, which has also been […]

    Robotic through-the-cheek brain surgery now possible inside the all-seeing eye of an MRI

    SOURCE October 24, 2014 Perhaps the biggest constraint in modern neurosurgery is the need to see inside the brain during an operation. An X-ray fluoroscope mounted on C-arm can be wheeled in for quick checkups, but they expose the patient to significant radiation, and don’t give the full picture. What […]

    Scientists have opened the blood-brain barrier for the first time

    SOURCE October 23, 2014 IFor the first time in humans, researchers have managed to penetrate the brain’s protector, meaning that doctors will be able to deliver drugs to previously inaccessible parts of the brain. The blood-brain barrier is a network of cells that separates the brain from the rest of […]

This is a further strengthening […]

 

Medical Devices, Medical Apps, Doctor and Patient

Education, Medical Blogs, Videos, Websites and Podcasts

The purpose of this website is to introduce both patients and healthcare professionals to the impact of the Internet on medicine and healthcare, by curating and organizing relevant articles in all fields of the digitalization of Medicine. (See i-NEWS section on Main Menu). Medical Apps and Medical Devices are examined, and internet technology and Patient Education are evaluated., for their places in all medical settings. The influence of the internet is shown in every Medical Specialty,, and improvements in Medical Education through the internet by showing the viewer the Top Patient Accredited Medical Information Websites, , the Best Medical Blogs, the top Medical Videos, and best Medical Podcasts. In addition to the latest-breaking Internet Medical News and Internet Medical Research News in all specialties are studied.. As Dr. Eric Topol of the Scripps Digital Medicine says, vast changes are occurring, now, due to the convergence of changes in technology. Medical Apps and Medical Devices are affecting many areas of of Medicine. Overall, the internet is changing all healthcare, from the use of Internet Technology in Hospital Administration in America to the use of iPhones to diagnose infectious disease in Africa

We are living in a great time for medicine. As most know, it is time for a change..
