Transcript of Advantages and Disadvantages of Non-invasive & minimally inv

Minimally Invasive
Minimally invasive generally refers to methods of surgery that utilise small keyhole sized operation sites
Advantages of non-invasive and minimally invasive medical techniques
Advantages for keyhole surgeries in general allows smaller incisions as well as lowering the risk of infection and reduce trauma.This often enables the patient to recover quicker, have minimal scarring and reduced hospital stays meaning that this is considerably cheaper. Advantages for non-inasive techniques on the other hand, allows for doctors to recognise what injury the patient has without having to perform any incisions that may leave scars.
Non-invasive generally refers to medical techniques that don't harm your body in any way and is used to identify injury, disease or malfunction by NOT PENETRATING the skin. These include x-rays, ultrasound, thermography and MRI
Disadvantages of these certain medical techniques is that non-invasive techniques are generally radioactive meaning that it'll cause radiation. Keyhole surgery on the other is disadvantaged in the fact that they can't prevent scarring altogether.
With these advantages and disadvantages in place, these medical techniques are going to be used regardless if its bad or not as patients need to be cured either way which requires these certain methods.Being able to develop new medical techniques doesn't change the fact that it still has its flaws for example the X-rays radiation and the keyhole surgeries scarring.
5A - Identify Data Sources, Gather, Process, Analyse and Present Information to Discuss the Advantages and Disadvantages of Non-Invasive & Minimally Invasive Medical Techniques
This involves a small incision being made so that an instrument such as an endoscope can be inserted
The Comparison Between Non-Invasive and Minimally Invasive Medical Techniques
X-rays is a form of medical technique that reveals the hard tissues within an individual's body such as the bones and displays it on a photographic plate that exposes the picture
Importance of X-rays in diagnostic medicine
X-rays are important as it enables the hard tissues within a patient to be studied and it allows doctors to recognise broken bones, foreign objects in the body, dental cavities and diseased conditions such as cancer
Keyhole Surgery
Importance of Keyhole Surgeries
Keyhole surgeries are important as this technique attempts to decrease the trauma to be a patient during treatment
non-invasive and minimally invasive techniques are completely different from each other except for the fact that they are both often required for different types of patients. They differ as non-inasive techniques don't require any incisions whereas minimally invasive technique do
