The wife of the President of the Republic of North Macedonia, Elizabeta Gjorgievska, last night in Villa Vodno, held a lecture for medical students on the topic: “Simplified 3D visualization: µCT evaluation in vitro and in vivo”.The event, which was attended by twenty medical students, was also attended by the Minister of Health, Venko Filipce.
The lecture, organized in cooperation with the Association of Medical Students, is part of the initiative that began in February this year, with a lecture by the Minister of Health, Venko Filipce, in the field of neurology, was implemented in the Office of the President, MladiHub.
Gjorgievska explained to the medical students the new visualization technique – micro computed tomography from a research point of view, emphasizing that this topic is different from what they hear and work with every day because, in addition to professional research data, they will have the opportunity to learn about the meaning of international cooperation and what is being done in the world on this topic.
“3D x-ray microscopy allows the internal 3D structure of specimens to be visualized in a non-destructive way. “The technological method behind this is microcomputer tomography, a non-destructive imaging technique that uses the same method as medical CT scans, but on extremely thin sections with extremely high resolution, where micro-photographs can be obtained even at the sub-micron level”, Gjorgievska said at the lecture for medical students.
The Association of Medical Students said that in this crisis period they as young future doctors should have an active role in their local community, first to set an example, and then through activities, projects and cooperation to help and be supportive of the health in the country in dealing with Covid-19.
The lectures can be attended by all interested persons because they are of open type and are useful for all future medical professionals, enabling them to get answers to questions that remained unanswered through direct contact and conversation, as well as giving them the opportunity to launch new initiatives.
The aim of the initiative is for students and young doctors to get acquainted with the valuable work of medical professionals outside their specializations and faculty premises.
