Advanced Computing Methods in Medical Field
On behalf of the Journal, as Editor-in-Chief, it is my distinct honour and privilege to welcome you to the Journal of Theoretical and Computational Science.
The Journal of Theoretical and Computational Science aims to spread knowledge and promote discussion through the publication of peer-reviewed, high quality research papers on all topics related to Modern Scientific Techniques. The open access journal is published by Longdom Publishing who hosts open access peer-reviewed journals as well as organizes conferences that hosts the work of researchers in a manner that exemplifies the highest standards in research integrity.
In just a few short decades, the medical field has become increasingly reliant on computers to bring the most advanced forms of diagnosis and treatment to patients. The application of the computer in health care has helped doctors and researchers advance medical science while expanding the level of care for patients.
Medical Imaging: Medical imaging is a broad term that covers technology used to create images of the human body for study and diagnosis. It includes magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, CT scans and X-Rays. All of these devices are controlled by computers. Even X-Ray imaging, which has been used in medicine since the early 20th century.
Patient Monitoring: Modern computer-based patient monitoring machines allow heart rate, respiratory activity, blood pressure and other critical vital signs to be collected automatically in digital form. In hospitals, they have the ability to automatically update a patient's chart and notify hospital staff of changes to a patient's vitals.
Computer-Assisted Surgery: Computers are used to assist in planning, teaching and performing many surgical procedures. One of the biggest recent developments in this area is robotically-assisted surgery (RAS), which allows surgeons to use robotic devices and computer software to complete minimally-invasive procedures. The surgeon remains in control and guides the robot device to complete complex operations in confined parts of the body.
Networks and Digital Communication: Computer networks and the internet have increased the means of communication between medical professionals with email, instant messaging, video chats and webinars. Being able to connect digitally helps health care professionals stay current with the latest medical developments. They can also consult with colleagues in real-time and receive second opinions for diagnoses and treatment options.
Electronic Health Records: Perhaps one of the newest major developments in health care, the electronic health record (EHR) is also one of the most far-reaching. An EHR is a digital version of a patient's paper chart that is instantly available to authorized health providers.
Medical Databases: Computers have brought the development of many useful software solutions in the medical field. Large public health organizations like the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control have amassed huge databases of information related to diseases and health statistics. There are also public databases available with information about toxic substances, clinical research results and drug coverage.
Our Journal emphasizes high-level research and education. Original research articles, reviews, short communications, and letters to the editors in the fields of ecotoxicology are welcome. Every effort is made to have a speedy and critical peer-review process.
