History of Medical Superconductivity has no followers yet. Be the first one to follow.
Endomagnetics has today announced that it has achieved ‘CE Mark’ approval for its SentiMag™ product – a new surgical instrument used to locate lymph nodes in the treatment of cancer.
High-temperature superconductors hold the key to a handheld tool for surgeons that promises to be more accurate, cost-effective and safer than existing methods for staging and treating various cancers, including breast cancer.
Superconductor that works at room temperature, which would potentially be useful in computing, medical imaging and even transport.
Dramatic savings could be achieved if the superconductors can be harnessed for use in electric power
Similar improvements to cellular phone systems, machines that doctors use to view images of the body's organs, and other medical devices ... It's sponsored by the University of Houston, where superconductivity got its biggestboost in 1987 with the discovery by Ching-Wu ``Paul'' Chu
Scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory have created a new kind of superconducting film that can carry 100 times more current than any material of its kind and may speed development of a host of hyper-tech devices from magnetically levitated trains to miniaturized medical-imaging scanners the size of a toaster.
Enhanced magnetic resonance imaging, or is available at The Medical Center in Brighton. The hospital is conducting scans using its new superconductor magnet
William Fairbank researched the nature of superconductivity and participated in the search for gravity waves, subatomic particles called quarks, ... Designed for use on cancers of the mouth and throat and certain brain and lung tumors
When HTS research began in April 1987, Siemens chose 35 collaborators in efforts to protect the “old” superconductivity markets in magnet and medical technology as well as in hopes of reviving the energy technology market.
John Bardeen, Leon Cooper, and John Robert Schrieffer won the prize for physics with their theory of superconductivity.
Dr. Landau was only 32 years of age when he explained in rigorous mathematical terms the superfluidity and the superconductivity of helium
In 1951, Dr. Bardeen joined the faculty at the University of Illinois and soon began the research that made him the first person to receive two Nobel Prizes in the same field. He developed a theory of low-temperature superconductivity in which electricity travels with little or no resistance. This helped researchers develop technologies to make medical diagnoses and made it possible to devise alloys that become superconducting at less extreme temperatures. He considered the superconductivity theory his greatest scientific achievement.

Superconductivity was found at the University of Leiden, The Netherlands, by Kamerlingh Onnes in 1911.
