Acceleration experts realize evolution of medical practice
Evolution of technology protects human health and life
There are no bounds to medical needs mainly in matured countries. In addition to advancement and refinement of diagnosis and treatment, such as identifying diseases by early diagnosis and tailor-made medicine, more advanced medical practices such as pre-onset prevention and complete recovery of affected functions are now required.
To respond to these needs, various medical devices have been researched and developed. Among them, diagnostic devices such as image diagnostic devices have been rapidly evolving with advances in computer technology. Along with the improvement of medical image processing technology used in CT, MRI, ultrasound diagnostic equipment, etc., it has become possible to use higher speed, wider area, and higher definition data while advancing downsizing of equipment.
Technologies called bioinformatics are also evolving greatly. A project to analyze the whole nucleotide sequence of the human genome, which is called the human genome project in the past, succeeded after the passage of 13 years. However, with the advancement of DNA sequencer devices, the same work as the human genome project can be done in a few days now. Based on data such as genes obtained by analyzing, it is expected that prevention, diagnosis and treatment according to each case will be carried out.
