Translational Engineering in Health and Medicine: A Glimpse into the Student’s Point of View
Student Editor Paper
Students take a vital part in the effort to translate engineering-based research in medicine. It is therefore essential to understand their view of the field, the motivation in choosing a specific research path, and the factors influencing pursuing an academic vs. an industry-related career. To provide a glimpse into the students’ point of view and gain key insights, we have conducted a survey among translational engineering in medicine students.
Research Field Spotlight: Magnetic Resonance Imaging-Guided Focused Ultrasound
When we come across the term ultrasound, what usually comes to mind is a gray-scaled fetal image. Ultrasound imaging is widely used in various medicine branches, including: cardiology, gynecology, and oncology. Although a less familiar application, ultrasound can also be utilized for tissue temperature elevation.
