India’s biggest cyclotron facility “Cyclone-30” has become operational at the Kolkata-based Variable Energy Cyclotron Centre (VECC) under the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) for treatment of cancer. The facility produces a 30MeV beam that will be used to produce radioisotopes for medical imaging & diagnosis. The Cyclone-30 is in the first phase of production generating ..

The scientist at INMAS claim to have developed India’s first indigenous medical kit that may ensure protection from serious injuries and faster healing of wounds resulting from nuclear warfare or radioactive leakage. The medical kit has been developed for the armed, paramilitary and police forces only as they are the first ones likely to get ..

Well-known neurosurgeon Dr. Basant Kumar Mishra from Odisha has been named for prestigious Dr B.C. Roy National Award for year 2018 as Eminent Medical Person of the Year. It is the highest medical honour of India, which will be given away by President Ram Nath Kovind on July 1, 2019. It was instituted by the ..
Telcos say that they are not allowed to expand tower network due to emission issues. Emissions from mobile towers are considered safe as it is non-ionising or “low energy” radiation, which cannot alter the human DNA. At most, it can only induce thermal effects by way of mild arming of the body. Only ionising or ..

Specific absorption rate is the measure of the rate at which energy is absorbed by the body when exposed to a radio frequency (RF) in electromagnetic field. The term is not restricted to the absorption of Electromagnetic Feild (EMF) and can be used in terms of absorption of other forms of energy by tissue, including ultrasound. In short SAR is the power absorbed ..

In a breakthrough innovation Rao Papineni, the nanotechnology scientist, in collaboration with his colleagues invented a cancer treatment system in which a nano-particle acts as a carrier of anti-cancer drug and releases it only in the cancerous cell, thus safeguarding the healthy cells around from the damage. The patent is titled ‘High Capacity Non-Viral Vectors.’ ..
