Are Refurbished Medical Equipments Dangerous:Kerala

Kochi: People who go for a CT scan or x-ray at hospitals and diagnostic centres in Kerala may be atserious radiation risk as many medical institutions in the state use junk X-ray tubes and CT scan machines that are discarded by Europe and the US.
Radiation devices,mainly X-ray tubes,whose fiveyear life term has expired,are being imported to Kerala in large numbersfrom theUS and Europe.Such devices cause serious health hazards.
We have alerted theAtomic Energy Regulatory Board about the import of poor quality radiation devices and itisup totheboardtotake a final call on permitting import of such devices, a senior official in the state health and family welfare department,who requested anonymity,said.
Following expert advice,the state government has decided to set up a Directorate of Radiation Safety (DRS ) to conduct quality check on all radiation devices used in hospitals and other institutions.This is the first time that such a body is being set up in the country.
Preliminary probes have revealed that the majority of imported devices are banned in the US and Europe due to high radiation risk, the official said.
According to data available with the state government,there are 2,500 centres in the state,which use over 6,000 radiation devices,including dental Xray,for diagnostic purposes.The government has decided to act on its own to check the quality of the radiation devices.In another two months time,the state will have DRS to check the quality and radiation level of the devices installed at all diagnostic centres and hospitals in the state, said DRS director-designate K A Davis.
Currently,a few private agencies are conducting quality checkof radiation devices.But they enter into an unholy nexus with diagnostic centres to issue certificates.The DRS will conduct a mandatory periodic quality check of the devices at all hospitals and diagnostic centres.Above all,centres planning to install new devices should get it approved from the DRS after a spot inspection, Davis explained.

IamBiomed: Biomedical Engineering Notes Website


 


 

Recently, I came across a effort by Biomedical Engineering students, they are IIIrd yr students in biomedical from watumull institute,Worli,Mumbai. Varun Venkatesh and his friend Aditya ekawade alongwith Prerak Dalal have designed the whole website, I dont know what syllabus they follow but they have indexed Biomedical Engineering notes which is really great.

www.iambiomed.com is a website for Biomed people by Biomed people.

We at ‘I am Biomed’ cater to the needs of a Biomedical Student.

Innovations in Medical Sensors for Biomedical Electronics Applications in Healthcare

Students can refer this post to start working on their projects. Students can take ideas and start the project

Biomedical electronics research is being driven by the aging “baby-boomer” population and their medical needs. This phenomenon is spurring fast development of new biotechnologies and need for access to innovative means of medical diagnosis and treatment in preventive medicine. Subsequently, the technologies of implants and advanced wireless electronic media will help alleviate rising medical costs in today’s society and extend the average longevity with a quality life in our later years.
