This New Camera Can See Through The Human Body


Surgery is getting better all the time. More procedures that once required large cuts and lots of recovery time can be performed with a tiny incision and a high-tech endoscopic camera. But endoscopes aren’t perfect. They may show physicians an image of your insides, but they don’t tell them exactly where in the body they’re shooting the footage. Luckily, researchers may have found a solution to this problem. They’ve developed a super-sensitive camera that can detect light through the human body — light like the kind that comes from an endoscope.

Cutting-Edge Tech Made Even Better

It may surprise you to know that as revolutionary as endoscopes have been, they involve a bit of guessing. The surgeon generally has to estimate where the endoscope is in the patient’s body based on where they started, and as endoscopes get more advanced and are able to reach ever smaller areas, that gets even harder.

Because it’s pretty dark inside the human body, an endoscope shines a light to illuminate the image. Most of those light particles, or photons, scatter — although some scatter less than others — while others escape straight through the tissue. Experts call those slightly scattering particles “snake photons.” Straight-ahead particles are “ballistic photons.” To identify where the endoscope is in the body, researchers from Heriot-Watt University and the University of Edinburgh created a device that can detect both of these types of photons. What’s more, it also records how long those photons take to pass through the tissue, helping it identify exactly where the endoscope is located.

Seeing Right Through You

The team tested their device on tissue models of birds and sheep lungs, and were able to figure out where the endoscope was within centimeters, much more precisely than previous methods. They even tried it in a human body, placing a scope on the back of a torso and imaging from the front, with a hand placed in the way for good measure. The camera generated an accurate image, although it did take 17 seconds to do so.

But this is just a first step. The team hopes to improve upon their technology by testing different light wavelengths and building more advanced detectors. That could help physicians find the endoscope at even greater depths.

“Where he (husband) comes from, they treat corpses as if they still have life, that’s why they will carry it to the home of the deceased a few days before they bury the body, so they can ‘hang’ around it, she penned.

Her relatives fondly referred to her as a great mother to her three kids, exceptional and kind.

4-year-old boy whose skull separated from his spine miraculously survives without surgery (photos)


image

4 year old boy Killian Gonzalez, miraculously survived after he was internally decapitated in a car accident and wouldn’t have made it without the help of a good Samaritan, who held his head perfectly still until paramedics arrived.
When someone is internally decapitated, their head is essentially just holding on by a thread – his skull basically separated from his spine. Less than one percent survive the injury. Those who do, need extensive surgery and wear a halo brace. This child, miraculously, didn’t have to undergo any of that

image

Killian and his mother, Brandy Gonzalez, were traveling to Nevada after celebrating Killian’s birthday when their car skid off the road due to ice, causing them to crash.
A Nampa police officer and his wife Leah Woodward were coming down the hill and saw the crash unfold in front of them. Leah Woodward quickly got out of the car to see if there were any survivors. That’s when she heard a little boy screaming from the car.
She was unable to get into the car because of locked doors, she then took a hitch and smashed out the back window of the vehicle.
With a little guidance from her husband, Leah sat up the lifeless 4-year-old boy and held his C-Spine.
She held his head straight for over half an hour. A move that likely saved his life.
Killian ruptured his spleen, broke his arm and multiple ribs. But the worst injury he suffered from was clinical decapitation. A rare condition where his skull separated from his spine.

image

Most people don’t even survive, but Killian is expected to make a full recovery. He’s eating, walking, and even sitting up by himself. All without surgery.
The boy and his mum are now getting better and recovering. Thank God!

#The_shocking_story of #Mrs_Eve: How she got rid of #fibroid naturally without #surgery #My_Story


image

My name is Eve Abbey and I am 37 years old. I live in Ikoyi, Nigeria Nigeria. I found out I had fibroids when I was trying to get pregnant and it was making me feel rejected and forsaken after 8 years of marriage, and during this years I had visited so many hospitals with different scan and test, but this very day I went to visit a friend, her children was just running up and down she was shouting joy and Justinian leave that place (she was talking to her daughters) when I got home being alone I felt bad not because she was calling her daughters but because I don’t have any child to call, this led me to hospital just to know what was going on again in which I have visited hospital times without number
The result of the scan shows I have 3 large fibroids, which the doctor said was preventing me from getting pregnant. I had a surgery in October 2007 to take them out, but I was bleeding so much during the surgery, they ended it quickly and left 2 smaller ones in my uterus.I was in hospital for almost 3 weeks, and I had to spend 12 weeks at home recovering, due to complications. Visit here to know more

image

I Felt Rejected and Lonely
I went to hospital that day after I left my friend’s house as I was saying to really know what was going on in my system again that was preventing me to get pregnant and also to complain about series of problem I had like pains etc. By the time I got to the hospital, I went for scan it was discovered that a new fibroid had grown, so I realized the fibroids might get worse.
I was directed down the frightening path to the operating room after a diagnostic revealed a rapid growing fibroid that was causing my severe pain and other problems. I was scared when I heard of fibroids again knew what I went through during the first surgery and was tearfully shocked at the news.

image

I Ran away with Fears
My doctor insisted that a myomectomy was my only treatment option. There was a likely risk that a hysterectomy would be performed instead if things didn’t go as planned during the surgery, but I wouldn’t know until I woke up! So I would end up with painful incisions, noticeable scars, having to take pain medication, spending days in the hospital and months recovering, etc. All I could think to myself was, “I can’t do this!” The life I loved and worked so hard to have was already significantly compromised and it would never be the same again if I had this surgery. So I decided to turn back and run before I reached the end of the path to the operating room and take a chance to find an alternative on my own.

image

Meanwhile my symptoms continued to get worse . I began to lose feelings in my thighs from the fibroid pressing on my nerves, the pain and pressure were almost unbearable, my energy seemed to disappear more every day and my abdomen continued to enlarge and feel heavy. It looked like I was pregnant and just starting to show. I was forced to take a medical leave of absence from my job with no pay and no sick time left to use for compensation. With loan to pay back in the office, and living expenses to pay. Thankfully, the wealth of knowledge I gained from researching the internet on sites such as this one
eventually led me to information on how to remove fibroids naturally without surgery

image

Office Rejection
Our office health insurance refused to pay for my further treatment when they were told that I refused to go through knife, this now make me to be more desperate to find easy and affordable treatment, this very faithful day I came across this website
http://www.topnaturalhealthcare.comI was inspired to read more about it because it’s in line with what am looking for.
Without no further delay I started with
Fibroid remover program , I must say, when I saw the price, I thought it was too expensive, but my husband insisted that I get it. My husband always tells me life is more important than clothes and other material things, so if you need to spend some money to make yourself feel good, you should go for it. I am so glad I did!!!
Good News
After 5 days of fibroid remover treatment it was like years back when I was in high institution that I never dream of having fibroid, I no longer feel the pains. It was hard to believe what I was experience even though I just spent Days in the program.Every pains I experienced immediately stopped and
went away within that few days. See how it all happened
Am so happy to tell you this, that my fibroids had gone, the one that was growing inside my uterus and the other two were inside the walls of my uterus. The largest fibroid was the size of a grapefruit. When I got my results back from a scan I went for, the result shows that I only had one fibroid inside the wall of my uterus and that it was the size of a small apple. So two fibroids completely dissolved away and the largest one was the size of a small apple instead of a grapefruit. Since I wasn’t having any problems with my periods and 2 out of the 3 fibroids were gone, I decided to just continue with the program and go on with my life.
At this moment, it’s been a little over three months since I had fibroid treatment and what a dramatic difference it has made in my life. . I returned back to work full-time two months ago after feeling enough relief to do so. So far almost every fibroid-related symptom I had has either gone away completely or improved a great deal. I think this is amazing, and I believe that fears of incisions, scaring, complications and long painful recovery times are now concerns of the past with this new natural way of removing fibroid.There are not enough words to explain the happiness I have now. I wish I knew about this program when I first had fibroids but as the saying goes “Things happen for a reason”. I am so thrilled with my experience that I inspire others to experience for themselves the profound transformation this fibroid treatment program offers.
I strongly recommend you visit:

Plastic/Aesthetic surgery in Nigeria


image

Nigeria has about 176 million people with many people located in major cities and town because of work and technology. Nigeria economy is growing and therefore medical tourism needs to be explored. There are well over 200 Plastic Surgeons in Nigeria with major Plastic Surgeons located in Teaching Hospitals.

image

There has always been high demand on Plastic Surgery procedures e.g. Liposuction, Tummy tucking, Botox, Derma fillers, Skincare issues and so on, but because of misunderstanding and mistrust for the medical system, many people would prefer to go abroad for treatment; meanwhile, a lot of money is being lost to medical tourism running into billions of naira.

image

There is also the syndrome of bringing in Plastic Surgeons from abroad to help in doing procedures. There are however a lot of complains because some of these surgeons do not get medical practice clearance from the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria. Some do not have good standing with their country medical board and therefore look for cheap medical practice leverage.
Our concern also goes to those who go overseas for procedures with no proper follow up therefore making them an easy target and where there are complications after the procedures, there will not be anyone to manage them or they end up in the hand of the same people they do not trust. With this, the patient is aggrieved.

image

In a small Plastic Surgery Clinic situated at Surulere, some of these procedures are done and our people are realizing that things can still be done properly. Procedures like liposucturing, tummy tucking, breast lift, breast reduction, blepharoplasty, face lift, thigh lift, arm lift, Botox, Derma filler, fat grafting, skin grafting, scar revision, laser procedures, gynaecomastia, contracture release, burn wound management, acute burn, cleft lip and palate to mention a few.

Laser in Aesthetics use: What you need to know as a pigmented skin
LASER is an acronym that simply means Light Amplification by Stimulation Emission of Radiation. The radiation in this sense is not a dangerous radiation as it sounds rather it is light being put to useful use.

image

Laser converts certain element or compound around us to produce what is called photon a form of energy which was first described by Albert Einstein on the theory of light.
In laser system different component of light are reproduced using specific elements like argon which is known as Argon Laser and Ruby which is also known as Ruby laser.
Ruby laser is used to handle vascular lesion. Other examples of lasers are ND:YAG, diode, ruby, argon, Er:YAG, CO2 laser and IPL.
Laser has existed for more than fifty years and they have been use for both industrial and Medical purposes.

image

Aesthetic Lasers have different manufacturers and they can come in different brand names e.g cynosure, Lumenis, palomar and so on. The above brand names are manufacturers name and do not necessarily mean they are ideal for your skin especially the pigmented skin.
Aesthetic laser is a new and growing field in Nigeria and there have been uncontrolled usage of laser in Nigeria health care services especially by artisans.

image

There are different laser systems and there is a need to understand what is best for your skin before you get injured by either untrained professionals or trained cosmeticians who just want to move with the flow.

image

In ensuring that your professionals or laser centers are on point please ask them the following questions and even in some places overseas they use the wrong laser for the pigmented skin
First ask them what type of laser system they are using and even though you might not be able to differentiate it except you see the specifics of the laser it is preferable as a pigment skin person to have treatment with the ND:YAg laser for laser hair removal or removal of pigment growth on your body not IPL. The latter is recommended mainly for white skin and in medical jargon Fitzpatrick 1-3.The black skin is Fitzpatrick
