Parameters, sequences or paradigms optimisation in view of data quality and relevancy improvement.
The purpose of this clinical study is to evaluate the imaging performance of the Carestream PRO 3543 Detector and Carestream PRO 3543C Detector (referred to as the "investigational devices...
This study will be testing two devices which are designed to detect cardiovascular disease in patients as early as possible. As there are now many therapies to prevent and treat this cond...
Comparison of humidification devices during non invasive ventilation, in acute respiratory failure. The hypothesis was, due to dead space, lower humidification, a reduced efficiency of th...
Movement is important for overall health. Lack of movement has been shown to be associated with numerous diseases. This study will assess the validity and usefulness of two innovative low ...
Patients who have pacemakers or defibrillators are often denied the opportunity to undergo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) because of safety concerns, unless the devices meet certain criteria specifi...
Tensiomyography™ (TMG) and MyotonPRO (MMT) are two non-invasive devices for monitoring muscle contractile and mechanical characteristics. This study aimed to evaluate the test-retest reliability of ...
Simple thermal devices providing reliable data are needed to detect somatosensory disturbances in non-specialized clinical settings. Currently, evidence is lacking about their use. Therefore, the aim ...
Chest radiographs are obtained as a standard part of clinical care. Rapid advancements in medical technology have resulted in a myriad of new medical devices, and familiarity with their imaging appear...
To evaluate and compare the recall rates of Obstetric and Gynecologic devices approved via the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) 510(k) and Premarket Approval (PMA) processes DESIGN: Retrospective ...
A vacuum tube equipped with an electron emitting CATHODE and a fluorescent screen which emits visible light when excited by the cathode ray. Cathode ray tubes are used as imaging devises for TELEVISIONS; COMPUTER TERMINALS; TEXT TELECOMMUNICATION DEVICES; oscilloscopes; and other DATA DISPLAY devices.

Devices used in the home by persons to maintain dental and periodontal health. The devices include toothbrushes, dental flosses, water irrigators, gingival stimulators, etc.
Specialized clothing or equipment worn for protection against health hazards. Personal Protective Equipment may include MASKS; RESPIRATORY PROTECTIVE DEVICES; HEAD PROTECTIVE DEVICES; EYE PROTECTIVE DEVICES; EAR PROTECTIVE DEVICES; PROTECTIVE CLOTHING; and protective footwear.
Procedures that avoid use of open invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-control manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device. With the reduced trauma associated with minimally invasive surgery, long hospital stays may be reduced with increased rates of short stay or day surgery.
