The majority of the process is done with a thin light beam of laser passing through the area of the skin that is being treated. Within the skin, specifically the dark pigment, also known as the melanin

    • DNA Fingerprinting

      DNA Fingerprinting

      DNA fingerprinting is the process of taking a cell sample from a person and analyzing it. This technique involves analyses of less than 0.1% of human DNA (which is different for each person). Though small, this 0.1% of DNA is enough to distinguish one individual from another and can be used to determine maternity/ paternity

    • Virtual Autopsy

      Virtual Autopsy

      A Virtual Autopsy or Virtopsy is a new and non-intrusive form of performing an human autopsy. This system utilizes a Computer Tomography or CT unit and an (MRI) Magnetic Resonance Imaging unit to obtain a detailed view of a body. Here the MRI images and the detailed X-rays are combined to create a full three-dimensional

    • How Do Neurons Work?

      How Do Neurons Work?

      The neuron is the cell responsible for the transfer of information and electrical impulses around the body. Neurons work by transferring electrical charges from neuron to neuron to get from one point to another. All data, therefore, is transferred in this electrical fashion which is why computer science has become such an important tool in

    • MRI Video Goggles

      MRI Video Goggles

      MRI video goggles were designed to assist Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) patients from experiencing the effects of claustrophobia by providing 3d video and audio. The goggles immerse the patient DVD video and audio assisting them in avoiding the uncomfortable feeling and mental anxiety of being in a very small contained area for a period of

    • Brain Computer Interface

      Brain Computer Interface

      A brain computer interface (BCI) is an external devices that communicate directly to the brain of humans or animals through neuron silicon interfaces. These external devices can either transmit or receive signals to and from the brain which can then be used to restore function or movement to sensory organs or limbs. Furthermore, these external

      Harmonic Scalpel

      Electrosurgery is the the term used when high-frequency electrical current is used to cut, fulgurate, desiccate, or coagulate tissue with very little blood loss during surgery. The Harmonic scalpel is one of two competing brands in this field that help increase a surgeon’s efficiency and reduce the overall recovery time for patients. The device consists

      How a Nuclear Heart Scan Works

      A nuclear heart scan is an excellent method to evaluate the health of your heart. Nuclear heart scans are safe and extremely effective for diagnosing specific kinds of heart conditions. The process of having a nuclear scan is relatively simple and in most cases is painless. During a nuclear heart scan, a radioactive tracer (which

      Pharming

      Pharming is a process whereby plants and animals are genetically modified to become carriers of genes that stimulate the production of substances that have useful pharmaceutical applications. Thus, the term pharming is actually a play on the words pharmaceuticals and farming. To explain the process in simple terms, a foreign gene is introduced into the

    • Methyl Iodide

      Methyl Iodide

      Methyl Iodide is a chemical compound that is relatively volatile. It is commonly found in the form of a dense, colorless liquid. It is also known as iodomethane and has the chemical formula CH3I (one carbon atom with three hydrogen atoms and a single iodine atom connected to it). Methyl iodide is a naturally occurring
