Tips On How to Prepare for Medical License Examinations


The USMLE Step 1 examination is the first step of the United States Medical Licensing Exam. It tests aspiring doctors and graduates on critical concepts of the basic foundational sciences essential to the practice of the medical profession. This exam also tests the medical students' ability to follow instructions, identify correct medical terminology, comprehend the meaning of medical terms and pass the diagnostic and clinical examinations. Medical aspirants who score greater than 75% will be allowed to take the second step of the exam - The USMLE Step 2. Here, students will be assessed on their understanding of concepts in the third step of the exam, which focuses on written communication.
Before taking any of the United States Medical Licensing Exams, medical aspirants must have taken the first and second steps. Some colleges and universities also offer online medical licensing exams to help aspiring medical students prepare for these two steps. Nevertheless, many medical schools recommend that aspiring students take an exam and study in a medical facility instead.
Preparation for the USMLE Step 1 exam is an integral part of any medical aspirant's preparation. The most critical pre-requisite before taking the exam is completing an approved medical entrance exam, which is usually the equivalent of passing an existing state exam. The USMLE website contains a list of required test scores. However, it is recommended that students take the test immediately after completing the requirements for admission to their preferred college or university so that they can become familiar with the format.
Before sitting for the exam, students must have all the necessary books, supplies, and preparation for the test. Students should also consider the schedule for passing USMLE Step 1. Some colleges and universities require students to complete their coursework in the summer before applying for their medical license. If this is the case, students must not apply for any examination until after completing the summer course.
The United States Medical Licensing Exams are comprised of two sets of examinations: a written exam and a skill exam. Most physicians choose to take the skill exam first to know exactly what they need to study and prepare for before taking the written exam. Physicians who choose to take the written exam typically do well in their careers and are happier with their careers when they pass the exams.
Each medical board that licenses physicians has its own set of educational requirements. Some programs directors require applicants to have taken and passed the MCAT examination. Applicants are required to have taken and passed the NCLEX examination to be eligible for licensing. The Medical Board conducts an annual examination to ensure that each applicant meets the licensing requirements.
Most colleges and universities offer medical practice programs that prepare students for the medical licensing exams. These programs are usually accredited and submit all the materials needed to pass the United States Medical Licensing Exams. Students who want to take the licensing exams should check out the schools that offer these programs to find out the requirements to complete the course. There are many resources on the internet that offer tips and information on how to complete the medical licensing exams.
Once students have completed their required courses and the exam, they may register for the exam online or in person. The examination is administered monthly and will determine if a student has met all the requirements for licensing. Once the United States Medical Licensing Exams have been passed, the individual can begin working in the medical field. All US residents who are eighteen years of age or older must take and pass the medical licensing exams.

Lasers Vs Chemical Peels - What's Best For Your Skin?
Scarring from acne? Fine lines and wrinkles? Pigmentation and sun spots? Is any of this ringing a bell? They do happen, regrettably, and when they do, we panic. We've looked everywhere, from skincare products that claim to remove age spots to lengthy Google searches, expecting to find the 'magic' treatment that can eradicate the skin's textural imperfections and beyond. Fortunately, there are alternatives. Chemical peels and laser treatments, two skin resurfacing techniques that remove damaged skin to encourage skin regeneration, are used. What is the final outcome? Smoother and more rejuvenated skin. Combating skin problems has never been easier, but if you're new to the world of skin resurfacing, it might be intimidating. What Is the Difference Between Chemical Peels and Laser Treatments? Skin resurfacing techniques such as chemical peels and laser treatments remove old skin to promote the formation of new skin. Both procedures are frequently used to treat acne scars and hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and sun exposure issues such as pigmentation spots. Chemical peels and laser treatments are distinguished by the procedure itself. The first, as the name implies, employs chemical treatments to remove damaged skin, whilst the second employs lasers. Chemical peels use different amounts of acid solutions to treat the skin's outer layer. There are three types of peels: superficial, medium, and deep. Superficial chemical peels (for example, VI Peel and lactic acid peels) are delicate and exfoliate the skin lightly with weak acids. Medium chemical peels (for example, glycolic acid peels and TCA peels) are more invasive and penetrate the middle and outer layers of the skin. Deep chemical peels (e.g., phenol acid peels) are the most potent, employing strong acids to penetrate as well as remove damaged skin cells. Laser resurfacing treatments use light beams to penetrate the skin, eliminating one column at a time. Although laser removal is more exact, it is often more expensive than chemical peels. There are two types of lasers: ablative and non-ablative. Ablative lasers (such as CO2 and erbium) offer the best effects by vaporizing the skin. Non-ablative lasers (for example, Fraxel) are less intrusive to the skin because they heat it rather than destroying it. Because non-ablative lasers are less strong than ablative lasers, numerous sessions may be required to achieve the optimum results. While chemical peels and laser treatments are distinct in their advantages and the concerns they address, there is some overlap in the issues they address. A strong TCA (trichloroacetic acid) chemical peel, for example, can give resurfacing comparable to that of a resurfacing laser, or both peels and lasers can be utilized to treat acne and acne scars. In terms of skin tone, the two surgeries are also dissimilar. Chemical peels assist those with darker skin tones the most because they are an excellent pigmentation treatment. People with dark skin tones are more prone to hyperpigmentation concerns such as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation due to an overabundance of melanin in their skin (PIH). Acid solutions are used in chemical peels to encourage collagen formation, and antioxidants are used to further penetrate and treat pigmentation in darker skin. What Are the Most Common Chemical Peel Types? Vi Peel The VI Peel is a painless, mild peel that is appropriate for all skin types and tones. It is made up of trichloroacetic acid, Retin-A, salicylic acid, phenol, and vitamin C and is widely used to treat hyperpigmentation and repair UV damage. Lactic peel A lactic peel is made from milk and is ideal for dry or sensitive skin. It balances the pH of the skin and exfoliates gently by dissolving dead skin cells. Glycolic peel Glycolic acid, which is used in glycolic peels, stimulates the synthesis of new collagen and elastin by targeting the skin's outer layer. It is frequently used to treat acne, acne scars, and to tighten pores. TCA peel A TCA peel, which is more harsh than a glycolic peel, contains trichloroacetic acid. It is commonly used to lighten skin pigmentation and smooth wrinkles. Phenol peel To address severe wrinkles and discolouration, a phenol peel penetrates the skin thoroughly. When compared to gentler peels, it typically necessitates a lengthy recovery period and may be unpleasant. What Are the Most Frequently Used Laser Treatments? Fraxel Laser Treatment The Fraxel Laser Treatment uses FDA-approved fractional laser technology to revitalize skin. This laser is best effective on acne scars and tiny wrinkles that are mild to moderate in severity. CO2 Laser Treatment The CO2 Laser Treatment uses pixelated carbon dioxide lasers to treat more severe skin issues like deep wrinkles and acne scars. In general, this laser is unsuccessful for treating skin redness. Erbium Laser The Erbium laser is a less invasive and gentler laser treatment than the CO2 laser. The laser increases collagen formation by penetrating the epidermis (the outer skin layer). It's commonly used to remove wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots. Which Of These Is the Best Skin Care Treatment? It all boils down to your skin type and concerns, in a nutshell. It can be difficult to determine the best course of action, therefore it is always advisable to visit with a dermatologist to discuss your concerns and treatment choices. Not all chemical peels and laser procedures are suited for people with darker skin tones. Are you unsure about your situation? When in doubt, always consult a dermatologist. THE MOST EFFECTIVE ACNE SCAR TREATMENT A chemical peel used to treat hyperpigmentation. Textural changes, such as atrophic or indented scars, respond better to laser skin treatments. A TCA chemical peel, on the other hand, can help with acne scars. Combination methods, which include laser, peels, subcision, and/or dermal fillers, are widely used. WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT IF THIS IS MY FIRST CHEMICAL PEEL/LASER TREATMENT? With chemical peels, expect some redness and peeling following, depending on the type of peel. Not every peel results in apparent peeling. Post-laser skin side effects may include redness, peeling, swelling, and bruising, depending on the laser used. If you use topical treatments, you should discontinue them a few days before the procedure. You may be advised to stop using retinoids, hydroxy acids, benzoyl peroxide, or other harsh, drying, and potentially irritating substances depending on the peel and laser. As a preventative step, patients with a history of cold sores may be given antiviral drugs. WILL A CHEMICAL PEEL OR A LASER TREATMENT BE APPROPRIATE FOR MY SKIN? If you have any of the following conditions, you should avoid chemical peels and laser treatments: - Active infections in the treatment regions - Will be exposed to sunlight after treatment - Have a history of keloids or hypertrophic scars. - A lack of enough post-treatment recuperation time. - Have a darker skin tone (this applies to certain types of chemical peels and laser resurfacing treatments). Whether you choose a chemical peel or a laser treatment, there is a resurfacing skin option for you!

How COVID-19 Impacted on Neurorehabilitation Devices in Healthcare Industry ?
COVID-19 Impact on Neurorehabilitation Devices in Healthcare Industry OVERVIEW AFTERMATH OF COVID-19 AND GOVERNMENT ROLE The first case of the COVID-19 pandemic was found in Wuhan, China. This pandemic has influenced the whole planet with its major impacts on the economy and businesses across the globe. The COVID-19 spread worldwide in unprecedented ways due to its high infectious and contagious nature. The virus has spread across all regions ranging from North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East, and Africa up to South America. The COVID-19 has been declared as a pandemic by WHO due to its increased spread across the globe. Various countries announced the complete lockdown just after the declaration of COVID-19 as a pandemic, such as the U.S., India, Germany, and China, to protect them from the spread of the disease. The government imposed lockdown rules, and it had significantly impacted the market. The neurorehabilitation process makes a possible reduction in impairments and disabilities and eventually improves the life of the patient. Examples of neurorehabilitation devices are invasive stimulators, non-invasive stimulators, brain-computer interfaces, and neurorobotics, among others. Current rehabilitation is supported by advanced methods based on biofeedback, transcranial brain stimulation system, and BCI system. The prevalence of neurological diseases, rise in technological advancement, the emergence of robotic rehabilitation, and the effectiveness of gaming systems in neurorehabilitation are factors that are propelling the demand of the global neurorehabilitation devices market. However, the shortage of skilled personnel, the high cost of treatment, stringent government regulation may hamper the global neurorehabilitation devices market. IMPACT ON PRICE Neurological rehabilitation is a program designed for the treatment of people suffering from a disorder or any injury in the nervous system. The devices include non-invasive brain stimulators, robotic neuro systems, brain-computer interfaces, and wearable devices, among others. Due to the pandemic, there is the delay associated with various types of limitations faced by the manufacturers to fulfill the end product order, which has resulted in the less availability of neurorehabilitation devices in the market and due to which the cost of available devices has increased with the several factors. Also, due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic outbreak, manufacturers are forced to find new contract manufacturers and suppliers for more manufacturing activities to different or new facilities locations that are less impacted by the outbreak. IMPACT ON DEMAND Neurorehabilitation is an important part of the recovery process that has undergone some brain injury. In the COVID-19 pandemic, various charities have worked effortlessly to provide treatment and support to patients suffering from brain injury. During the pandemic, the demand for neurorehabilitation devices was high, but companies were not able to supply the devices to end-users as various restrictions were imposed by the government, such as a travel ban, closed borders, among others. Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a SARS-CoV-2 virus, while a large pool of the population is affected by this COVID-19 virus. Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) causes acute respiratory illness ranges from mild to severe pneumonia with respiratory failure. In order to minimize the spread of COVID-19, nearly all the countries have taken action, such as the implementation of lockdown and social distancing restrictions. Due to affirmative restrictions, sudden shrink took place in various surgeries. Moreover, the decrease in the revenue of the key market players depicted in their quarterly results, such as Medtronic, among others, gave evidence of the decline in the demand for the medical device due to the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic. For instance, · Medtronic reported a decline of 1% in its brain therapies net sales of the financial results of 2020 as compared to 2019. The reduction was largely motivated by the detrimental effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent deferral to companies of medical procedures The decline in revenue of brain therapy suggests the detrimental effect of COVID 19 on the neurorehabilitation devices market and hence impacted the demand-supply concept. IMPACT ON SUPPLY CHAIN The consequences of COVID 19 cannot be underestimated. The product and service providers of neurorehabilitation have made efforts by providing services virtually to meet the demands as people were not frequently visiting the hospitals or clinics for the treatment. The COVID-19 pandemic has transformed many organizations’ business environments; supply availability has been hampered by a number of issues, including export and travel restrictions by some manufacturing countries and lockdowns that have forced suppliers to (temporarily) shut down. In various countries, neurorehabilitation units have reduced their number of beds, in-patients and out-patient neurorehabilitation centers are restricted to a particular area in order to tackle the pandemic situation To manage such a critical situation, many organizations are looking forward to improving and diversifying the supply chain model in all aspects. Diversified supply chain model anticipated minimizing the export of medical devices as well as increase end-to-end visibility STRATEGIC DECISIONS BY MANUFACTURERS As the reality of COVID-19 dawned upon the world, the manufactures and production units of the companies in the global neurorehabilitation devices market swiftly planned for strategies to cope with the effect of the crisis. Major players in the market took various initiatives to cope up with the situation. For instance, · In July 2020, Abbott announced that it had received FDA approval for the use of the Patient Controller App on compatible personal Apple smartphone devices. The approval will allow the patient living with neurological conditions to manage their therapy directly from the personal smartphone · In 2019, Mount Sinai Health System announced an innovative tele-neurorehabilitation program for stroke patients. This therapy can be taken by patients while at their homes with virtual backing from clinicians · In 2020, Esko Bionics Holdings, Inc. announced that it had received FDA 501(k) go-ahead to promote its EksoNRTM robotic exoskeleton for patients with acquired brain injury. It is cleared by FDA for spinal cord injury, stroke, or acquired brain injury rehabilitation These strategies helped the company in coping with the pandemic and ensure business operations, minimize the impact of COVID-19, and providing full support to the government in their efforts to combat the disease and help the front-line workers. CONCLUSION The market is expected to decline due to increased restrictions imposed by various governments leading to the closing of non-emergent healthcare facilities, including procedures such as neurorehabilitation procedures. It can be concluded that the COVID-19 pandemic situation has an adverse impact on the market, affecting the price, supply, and demand of neurorehabilitation devices. However, in the crisis call, market players, government bodies, and healthcare organizations are work closely with healthcare professionals, customers, and patients for the betterment of public health. The increasing need of neurorehabilitation devices with increasing number of neurological diseases is expected to drive the market in coming years.
Liposuction Vs. Non-Surgical Fat Removal
Many cosmetic surgery patients are concerned about areas of unwanted, diet- and exercise-resistant fat. Localized fat can be difficult to get rid of permanently, whether it appears as a persistent stomach "pooch" after pregnancy, areas of fat around the thighs that won't budge, or bulges along the flanks and back. For many years, liposuction has been one of the most popular and frequently performed cosmetic procedures, and for good reason. This surgical procedure reduces fat and refines body contours in a safe, effective, and permanent manner. Nonsurgical or minimally invasive alternatives to liposuction have grown in popularity in recent years. These body contouring treatments usually do not require an incision or anaesthesia, and they have a shorter recovery time. Continue reading to learn about the differences between the two fat-loss methods and to determine which one is best for you. What exactly is liposuction? Liposuction is a surgical fat removal procedure that rose to prominence in the 1980s. A board-certified cosmetic surgeon carefully and precisely removes excess fat during the procedure using a small, hollow tube called a cannula. As the surgeon moves the cannula through the fat deposit, suction is applied, removing excess fat cells and sculpting a slimmer body contour. Liposuction is especially useful for removing fat from the legs, abdomen, back, arms, face, and neck. It produces more dramatic results than other noninvasive fat reduction procedures; however, it requires a recovery period of about four weeks and is typically more expensive than nonsurgical alternatives. CoolSculpting®, BodyTite®, and Other Nonsurgical Procedures: How Do They Work? Nonsurgical fat reduction treatments employ a variety of modalities to target and eliminate unwanted fat cells via a topical, rather than surgical, procedure. Nonsurgical body contouring treatments that are popular include: CoolSculpting. Allergan's CoolSculpting is a good choice for people who are close to their ideal weight but want to reduce small, localised trouble spots on the hips, abdomen, or thighs. A specialised cryolipolysis device is used in this treatment to cool unwanted fat cells to the point of death without affecting surrounding tissues. Fat cells that have died are flushed from the body in the days and weeks following the procedure. After three months, the final result is visible. TruSculpt. Cutera's truSculpt treatment is similar in that it uses controlled radiofrequency technology to eliminate fat cells on the hips, thighs, buttocks, and abdomen. The average treatment lasts about an hour, and most patients require one to two treatments to see noticeable results. BodyTite. BodyTite by inMode is a minimally invasive procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to tighten skin and reduce unwanted fat deposits. An internal probe delivers thermal energy to help melt fat and strengthen collagen bands beneath the skin's surface, while an external applicator delivers radiofrequency energy to the skin for additional tightening. BodyTite is considered minimally invasive because a small incision is required to insert the internal applicator probe by your surgeon; however, it is a less invasive procedure than liposuction. BodyTite is an excellent choice for people who have small to moderate amounts of excess fat and loose skin and want to avoid the extensive downtime associated with surgery. Most patients report seeing results within a few days, with final results appearing after 2 to 3 weeks. Patients can expect to see continued skin tightening in the months following their procedure because BodyTite stimulates collagen production in the skin. SmartLipo. SmartLipo by Cynosure, also known as “laser liposuction,” is a non-surgical procedure that uses triple wavelength laser technology to remove unwanted fat around the muscles and tighten loose, sagging skin. SmartLipo's laser gets to work dissolving body and/or facial fat, which your body then processes and excretes naturally. To remove any excess liquid that may accumulate during the procedure, a very small tube is inserted into the treatment area. SmartLipo is ideal for areas of the face that traditional liposuction cannot adequately address, such as the jowls, chin, jaw, and neck, due to the small tube used. SmartLipo is also excellent for contouring areas of the body that retain stubborn fat, such as the abs, back, flanks, thighs, buttocks, and upper arms. Because SmartLipo is less invasive than liposuction, there is less tissue damage at the treatment sites. The results of SmartLipo treatment are visible immediately, and there is little downtime required. SculpSure. SculpSure by Cynosure is a non-invasive laser body contouring treatment that removes unwanted fat beneath the chin (submental fat), love handles, the back, the stomach, and the inner and outer thighs. SculpSure, like CoolSculpting and truSculpt, is ideal for patients who are nearing their ideal weight but want to reduce stubborn, exercise- and diet-resistant fat pockets. Unlike CoolSculpting, which freezes fat cells, SculpSure uses heat to destroy fat cells (a process known as apoptosis). SculpSure has been shown in studies to be effective at permanently removing up to 24 percent of fat cells in a treated area. A series of 25-minute treatments is beneficial to the majority of patients. Nonsurgical Fat Reduction vs. Liposuction Both liposuction and nonsurgical body contouring have advantages and disadvantages. Invasiveness Liposuction is a more aggressive method of fat removal that causes trauma in the treatment area. For up to 10 days after the procedure, patients will experience soreness, bruising, and swelling. CoolSculpting, truSculpt, and SculpSure treatments are typically gentle and cause little discomfort during and after treatment. Results Although the final result of liposuction is not visible until 6 months after the swelling has subsided and the treated area has healed. CoolSculpting and other noninvasive fat reduction treatments take longer to produce results, which become more visible in the weeks and months following the procedure. While neither liposuction nor nonsurgical body contouring treatments can replace weight loss, liposuction does provide more dramatic and longer-lasting results, as well as some skin shrinkage. Downtime The healing process after liposuction necessitates that patients limit their daily activities for several days following the procedure and exercise with caution. CoolSculpting, truSculpt, and SculpSure do not require a lengthy recovery period, and patients can resume normal activities right away, though mild soreness and swelling are to be expected. Though the results of nonsurgical fat reduction will be less noticeable, you will be able to return to work and resume your life much sooner. Is Liposuction or Nonsurgical Body Contouring the Best Option for Me? For larger deposits of excess fat, liposuction may be an excellent option. It has the potential to significantly improve your figure in multiple areas at the same time. Some disadvantages include a higher cost and a higher risk of health complications when compared to noninvasive techniques. If you are already at your ideal weight, have good skin elasticity, and want to target smaller, stubborn trouble spots, nonsurgical fat reduction may be a better option. The results, however, will not be as dramatic, and multiple treatments may be required. Making an Appointment for Liposuction or Nonsurgical Fat Removal The best way to decide between liposuction, CoolSculpting, truSculpt, BodyTite, and other non-invasive fat reduction procedures is to consult with a board certified cosmetic surgeon. During a personalised cosmetic surgery consultation, they can walk you through your options and help you decide which is the best fit for you.

Is Dissertation the Same Thing as a Thesis?
You would wonder if there's a difference between a thesis and a dissertation. Though they seem similar to each other due to their approach, these two have differences. Yes, people use dissertation and thesis interchangeably sometimes and often confuse the same. But there are some differences between both of them, which everyone needs to understand. The papers- thesis and a dissertation- contain the same structure: introduction, literary review, body, conclusion, bibliography, and appendix. But, apart from that, these two terms are different and contain different guidelines. This article will guide you on whether a thesis is similar to a dissertation or not. Let's address the similarities and differences between a thesis and a dissertation. But before that, we need to understand what these two terms mean? What is a Dissertation? Which Course Needs Dissertation Writing? When pursuing a PhD, you will have to conduct your research. After that, you need to write an academic paper at the culmination of the PhD program, which is the dissertation. A dissertation is a lengthy research work that will be your research work throughout your program. Usually, students can earn their PhD after they submit and defend their dissertation. It is original or expanded research on an existing or a new topic that a PhD candidate conducts. What is a Thesis? How Crucial is it for Earning a Master's Degree? A thesis is a research paper. But, you need to work on it when you are pursuing a college master's degree program. You will have to submit your thesis at the final terms of your master's degree. It is an academic paper that lets you showcase your skills. Thus, you can show your expertise and skills on the subject matter of your master's degree. Hence, it is different from a dissertation according to courses. Now, let's discuss the similarities between a college thesis and a dissertation. Then, we will move on to their purposes and differences between the two. Similarities between a Thesis and a Dissertation: Several similarities are present between a thesis and a dissertation. Due to such similarities, people sometimes use them interchangeably. As you already know, both are research papers conducted for specific courses. Other than that, the similarities between the two include: A college thesis and a dissertation are research papers for the final project for students in graduate programs. They have to submit it by the end of their programs to earn their degrees. A dissertation and a thesis paper need proper research. Also, both need an accurate and deep understanding of the topic or research problem. The students must look into specific research questions for both the thesis and dissertations. Students must follow ethical practices while collating and documenting their research data in a thesis and a dissertation paper. Whether you write a college thesis paper or a dissertation paper, you need adequate academic writing skills, which add some similarities to these terms. In both a thesis and a dissertation, plagiarism is not accepted. Your paper may get disqualified if there's any plagiarism in it. Before submission, both thesis and dissertations need effective and efficient editing and proofreading. Students need to have proper analysis skills for both thesis and dissertation to support their findings. The basic difference between a Thesis and Dissertation The distinction between them lies at the time of its completion. A thesis ends at the end of a master's program, whereas a student does a dissertation during a PhD program. Let's check out the other differences between a dissertation and a thesis. The most crucial difference between a dissertation and a thesis is that a thesis is research on an existing idea. Meanwhile, dissertation research is research on a new concept that the student needs to defend. With a thesis, you can show the knowledge you gained throughout your master's program. Whereas through a dissertation, you can contribute some new ideas or knowledge to your field. When writing a dissertation, you have to develop your new idea or concept and prove that it's valid. But, a thesis is a research on an existing concept or idea in your field. A dissertation is much longer compared to a thesis. A thesis usually has 100 pages. But, dissertation research contains more information and background knowledge compared to a thesis. It also requires more pages. In a dissertation, you have to include your research proposal, literature review, grant proposal, research topic creativity, and other details on the topic. Comparing a thesis and a dissertation in terms of length is three times lengthier than a thesis. Difference between a Thesis and Dissertation- Location wise: Both a dissertation and a thesis are different in terms of location. In different locations, people use these terms differently. Hence, locational differences can also inform you whether these terms have similarities. We will discuss the differences between a dissertation and a thesis in the USA and Europe. USA: A thesis is a long research paper that graduate students perform to earn a university or college degree in the USA. Meanwhile, a dissertation is a long research paper that students perform for a higher college or university degree. The students submit a thesis to earn a master's degree and a dissertation to earn a doctoral degree. The students don't have to perform original research and work based on previous and existing ideas in a thesis. But, a dissertation needs original research on the subject that also contains new ideas of the student in their field. In the USA, a thesis is shorter than a dissertation. Dissertation research requires much more results and takes more time compared to a thesis. Europe: Europe has the reverse idea of both a dissertation and a thesis compared to the USA. In Europe, a thesis is a long research paper for students to complete their original research and ideas of the field they are undertaking. On the other hand, a dissertation is a long academic research paper that students write, especially for a university degree. In Europe, a PhD requires a paper having new concepts or knowledge based on a student's original research. On the other hand, a master's degree requires a paper that contains knowledge and information based on existing ideas. Usually, a dissertation revolves around one particular question, whereas a thesis contains each chapter for a separate research topic and methodology. The time required for both a thesis and dissertation is different here. You can perform your research and analysis for several months for a dissertation. But in the thesis, it takes a much longer time, and it can even reach 2-3 hours, depending on your research time. The essential purpose of thesis papers is that a thesis aims to understand a student's knowledge of their field. The student has to research an existing concept done by others in the same field. On the other hand, a dissertation aims to understand whether students can develop something new in their field of study and conduct original research. These papers require intense research, analysis skills, time, and effort since they are lengthy and informative. Hence, these papers can show whether the students have effectively mastered the knowledge of their programs and are capable of receiving their degrees or not. Conclusion Both a thesis and a dissertation seem similar. However, both these terms have different purposes and help attain different degrees. Hence, we can say that a thesis and a dissertation have similarities, but you cannot interchangeably. A thesis is for a master's degree meanwhile a dissertation is for a doctoral program. Here we can see how much difference they have in terms of the purpose. Several differences exist between dissertation help research and college thesis in structure, location (USA and UK), length, and many more. We have discussed all such differences in this article. Yes, these terms may have some similarities in terms of points. But you shouldn't use one term for the other as they have different ideas, guidelines, and uses.

How COVID-19 Impacted on Intraoperative Radiation Therapy ?
Impact of COVID-19 on Intraoperative Radiation Therapy in Healthcare Industry The COVID-19 pandemic has influenced the whole planet with its major impacts on the economy and businesses across the globe. The COVID-19 spread worldwide in unprecedented ways due to its high infectious and contagious nature and lack of availability of its vaccine. As a result, the greatest medical challenge in the 21st century is yet to be faced by physicians worldwide. Though the emergence of the virus can be traced back to Asia, many European countries along with the U.S. have been struck massively by the pandemic. The virus has spread across all regions ranging from North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East, and Africa up to South America. The COVID-19 has been declared as a pandemic by World Health Organization (WHO) due to its increased spread across the globe. After the declaration of the pandemic, various countries announced the complete lockdown such as India, China, and other Asian countries to decrease its spread. According to the latest situation report by World Health Organization (WHO) stated 175 million cases of the corona have been reported globally and 4 million patients are dead due to the coronavirus. On a slightly positive note, a total of 158 million people have recovered and total of 2 million vaccine doses have been administered as well. Countries all around the world witnessed a large number of patients suffering from COVID-19 and post COVID-19 complications such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and kidney problems. As a result, the hospitals and clinics were filled up with COVID-19 patients and less preference was given to cancer patients. Moreover, the surgical procedures for the same were brought to a halt which will lead to the downfall of the growth of intraoperative radiation therapy in the current situation. However, with the number of cases decreasing in number and increase in vaccination against COVID-19 across the globe, the market for intraoperative radiation therapy market might get a boost due to some relaxation in COVID-19 cases which will result in increasing demand for intraoperative radiation therapy with patients coming forward to clinics and hospitals for treatment. The novel coronavirus has profoundly impacted all fields, including healthcare, medical device services, automotive, and pharmaceutical among others. It has led to shutdowns of mass production and disruptions in the supply chain that have impacted the economies of possibly every nation in the world. The pandemic also affected the intraoperative radiation therapy industry as the patients fear contracting the virus which compelled patients to stay at home instead of completing their post-lumpectomy radiotherapy regimens. IMPACT ON PRICE The Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic has a huge impact on the price of the global intraoperative radiation therapy market. It is estimated that if COVID-19 continues to spread for prolong period then the demand for cancer therapy devices will highly upsurge for top importer countries. For therapies and the diagnostic, the United States solicit a huge number of medical X-ray IORT devices followed by China and Japan. Henceforth, for diagnosis dependency of these countries highly increases on other exporters and many countries solely depend on the U.S. and Japan for the cancer therapy equipment. Consequently, this leads to a rise in X-ray IORT device cost along with types such as Electron IORT and related accessories. For instance, This increase in the price of the cancer therapeutic devices may hamper the market growth if it continues to be consistent. Additionally, if the lockdown continues to stretch for long period then the import of the intraoperative radiation therapy market is estimated to be more restricted, which may lead to a rise in the price of these devices. IMPACT ON DEMAND Various screening, diagnostic, and surgical procedures were restricted at hospitals and cancer treatment centres, which resulted in disruptions in the intraoperative radiation therapy market. However, as per World Health Organization (WHO), the modern day vaccination drives are increasing the demand for intraoperative radiation therapy market, since cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for nearly 10 million deaths in 2020. The majority of the population worldwide is suffering from cancer diseases due to poor lifestyle choices, smoking, consumption of alcohol, lack of physical activity, and other factors. With the increase in the prevalence of cancer, the demand for intraoperative radiation therapy is increasing as well to offer proper diagnosis and treatment to the patient. For instance, · There were an estimated 18 million cancer cases around the world in 2018, which increased to 19.3 million in 2020 This proves that there was an increase in the number of cancer patients even during the COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover, according to the American Cancer Society, Inc. the cancers patients are likely to get infected with coronavirus because of the changes in their immune system that control their bodies defence systems. Thus, having cancer may also increase the risk of the severe illnesses from COVID-19 as the cancer therapy treatment reduces the immunity of the human body. This has provided for the increasing demand for intraoperative radiation therapy diagnostic tools, especially in cancer-dedicated hospitals and surgical centres, where all the patients with cancer-related problems are treated. Thus, with the increased cases of cancer, the demand for intraoperative radiation therapy is expected to increase in upcoming years. IMPACT ON SUPPLY CHAIN The supply chain was widely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic as acute restrictions and lockdowns produced many urgent situations in the early days of the pandemic which needed immediate attention. The supply chain disruption has transformed many organizations’ business environments, including the supply chain of the intraoperative radiation therapy market. The supply chain disruption mainly impacted the Asia-pacific region at the initial time and especially the market of and from China due to challenges from restricted movement and quarantine period. For instance, · According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), 63 manufacturers which represent 72 facilities in China that produce essential medical devices were facing an obstacle in the manufacturing of medical devices and their supply, owing to citing workforce challenges, and the necessary quarantine of workers. Moreover, closing borders of various countries is anticipated to diminish the supply chain business environment. To minimize supply chain crises, FDA has been firmly monitoring the supply chain with the assumption that the COVID-19 outbreak may adversely impact the supply chain of a medical product, including shortages of critical medical products in the U.S. or potential disruptions in supply chains. To manage such a crucial situation many organizations and countries are looking forward to improving and diversified supply chain models in all aspects. A diversified supply chain model anticipated minimizing the export of medical products as well as increase end-to-end visibility. For instance, · Federal indirect tax body the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Council of India has decided to cut taxes on medical supplies · The European Commission made a decision for helping Member States affected by the pandemic to temporarily suspend customs duties and VAT on medical device IMPACT ON PRICE The Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic has a huge impact on the price of the global intraoperative radiation therapy market. It is estimated that if COVID-19 continues to spread for prolong period then the demand for cancer therapy devices will highly upsurge for top importer countries. For therapies and the diagnostic, the United States solicit a huge number of medical X-ray IORT devices followed by China and Japan. Henceforth, for diagnosis dependency of these countries highly increases on other exporters and many countries solely depend on the U.S. and Japan for the cancer therapy equipment. Consequently, this leads to a rise in X-ray IORT device cost along with types such as Electron IORT and related accessories. For instance, This increase in the price of the cancer therapeutic devices may hamper the market growth if it continues to be consistent. Additionally, if the lockdown continues to stretch for long period then the import of the intraoperative radiation therapy market is estimated to be more restricted, which may lead to a rise in the price of these devices. CONCLUSION Pandemic has taken a toll on every aspect of life, including the global economy. With the significant downfalls in many sectors, a collaborative effort of government, industry players, and consumers can win the fight against COVID-19. It is estimated that the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak has slightly impacted the growth of the intraoperative radiation therapy market as due to the rising cases of COVID--19 worldwide, the surgical and therapies procedures were brought to a halt in establishments such as hospitals, clinics, and surgical centres. However, with the increase in cancer patients worldwide the demand for intraoperative radiation therapy will increase in the coming years. Moreover, poor lifestyle, smoking, consumption of alcohol, lack of physical activity, and other factors will contribute to the incidence of chronic disease such as cancer which is anticipated to increase the global intraoperative radiation therapy market in the coming years. It still continues to inflict the world with appalling economic and social dilemmas, capable enough to leave severe backlash on the economy for the next several years. The first wave had already inflicted severe blows to the population as well as the economy. The currently experiencing second wave is expected to be more disastrous not only to the masses but also to healthcare and medical device markets.

6 Easy Ways To A Smooth Neck
Because the skin on your neck is some of the thinnest on your body, it is also one of the first places to show signs of ageing. Here are six ways to make your neck look younger and address everything from sun damage to sagging on this delicate area. 1. WEAR SUNSCREEN EVERY SINGLE DAY. Your dermatologist will agree that a nickel-sized amount of sunscreen applied to your neck and chest every day will help prevent collagen breakdown and the formation of sunspots. Don't forget to massage the sides and back of your neck. 2. MAINTAIN YOUR SKIN'S MOISTURIZATION. Again, the skin on your neck is thinner and has fewer oil glands than the rest of your body, so keeping the area hydrated is essential for a smoother overall texture. Look for peptide-containing creams (which can help stimulate new collagen growth) and apply them in gentle, upward strokes from your chest to your jawline. 3. RECLAIM YOUR BEAUTY SLEEP. Do you always wake up with pillow lines on the side of your neck? Apply one of these silicone patches before going to bed to keep your skin from crinkling while you sleep. You'll wake up with a smoother neck and less chance of further damage. 4. FOCUS ON CORRECT POSTURE. The amount of time we spend looking down at our phones and screens has resulted in what we now refer to as "tech neck." The simplest solution would be to limit screen time entirely, but more realistically, you should keep everything as close to eye level as possible to avoid unnecessary wrinkling. 5. GIVE LASER TREATMENTS A GO AHEAD. Still have fine lines on your neck? Fraxel lasers, stimulate your body's natural repair process to promote collagen growth. Fraxel can also be used to treat any dark spots or broken capillaries in the area, giving you a more even complexion. 6. ULTRASOUND TREATMENT FOR SERIOUS REPAIR. Ultherapy or Ultracel is your best non-surgical option for deeper, more stubborn lines and sagging. The FDA-approved treatment uses heat generated by focused sonic waves to penetrate deeper into the skin and stimulate the production of new collagen.

Significant COVID-19 Impact on Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Diagnostics in Healthcare Industry
COVID-19 Impact on Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Diagnostics in Healthcare Industry The novel coronavirus has profoundly impacted all fields, including healthcare, medical device services, automotive, pharmaceutical and many others. This pandemic has led to shutdowns of mass production and disruptions in the supply chain that have impacted the economies of virtually every nation in the world. The pandemic also affected the non-small cell lung cancer diagnostic industry. The patient's fear of contracting the virus compels patients to stay home instead of undergoing diagnosis and treatment. During the COVID-19 pandemic, countries worldwide witnessed a large number of patients suffering from COVID-19 and post COVID-19 complications such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and kidney problems. As the COVID-19 cases were rising, the healthcare system had shifted its focus in curbing the disease, thereby delaying diagnosis and treatment of other chronic conditions as cancer. Thus, a negative impact is expected on the non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market due to the pandemic scenario As a result, the hospitals and clinics were filled up with COVID-19 patients and less preference was given to non-small cell lung cancer patients. Moreover, limited access to clinics, social distancing, the lockdown of the population, which results in a slow-down in patient flow and referrals, has also impacted the market growth. However, with the cases decreasing in number and increase in vaccination against COVID-19 across the globe, the market for non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market may get a boost due to some relaxation in COVID-19 cases, which will result in increased demand for non-small cell lung cancer diagnosis with patients coming forward to clinics and hospitals for treatment. IMPACT ON DEMAND Various screening, diagnostic and surgical procedures were restricted and at hospitals and cancer treatment centers, which resulted in disruptions in the non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market. However, even during the pandemic, the lung cancer cases were subsequent, which is expected to increase the demand for non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market. For instance, · According to World Health Organization (WHO), in 2020, lung cancer accounted for 2,206 771 deaths among both sexes. The lung cancer statistics include both small cell lung cancer and non-small cell lung cancer. About 13% of all lung cancers are small cell lung cancer and 84% are non-small cell lung cancer. This proves an increase in the number of non-small cell lung cancer patients even during the COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover, according to the American Cancer Society, Inc., lung cancer patients are likely to get infected with coronavirus because of the changes in their immune system that control their body's defense systems. For instance, · According to a study published in PubMed, patients with lung cancer are at an increased risk of becoming infected with the virus and experience higher morbidity and mortality than the general population Thus, having cancer such as non-small cell lung cancer may also increase the risk of severe illness from COVID-19 as the cancer therapy treatment reduce the immune system of the body. . This has increased the demand for non-small cell lung cancer diagnostic tools, especially in cancer-dedicated hospitals and surgical centres, where all the patients of non-small cell lung cancer-related problems are treated. Thus, with the increased lung cancer cases, the demand for non-small cell lung cancer diagnostic will increase in the coming years. IMPACT ON SUPPLY CHAIN The supply chain was widely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic as acute restrictions and lockdowns produced many urgent situations in the early days of the pandemic, which needed immediate attention. The supply chain disruption has transformed many organizations' business environments, including the supply chain of non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market. The supply chain disruption impacted the Asia-Pacific region initially, especially the demand from China due to challenges from restricted movement and quarantine period. For instance, · According to the FDA, 63 manufacturers representing 72 facilities in China that produce essential medical devices face obstacles in manufacturing medical devices and their supply, owing to citing workforce challenges and the necessary quarantine of workers. Moreover, closing borders of various countries is anticipated to diminish the supply chain business environment, as it may hamper export of the medical supplies To minimize supply chain crises, the FDA has been firmly monitoring the supply chain with the assumption that the COVID-19 outbreak may adversely impact the supply chain of medical products, including shortages of critical medical products in the U.S. or potential disruptions in supply chains. Many organizations and countries are looking forward to improving and diversified supply chain models in all aspects to manage such a crucial situation. A diversified supply chain model anticipated minimizing the export of medical products as well as increase end-to-end visibility. For instance, · The Brazilian government published a resolution eliminating import taxes on 141 medical products and hospital equipment · The European Commission made a decision for helping Member States affected by the pandemic to suspend customs duties and VAT on medical devices temporarily · Federal indirect tax body the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Council of India has decided to cut taxes on medical supplies IMPACT ON PRICE The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic does not significantly impact the global non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market. But it is estimated that if COVID-19 continues to spread for a prolonged period, then the demand for non-small cell lung cancer diagnostic equipment and devices will highly upsurge for top importer countries. For therapies and the diagnostic United States solicit the huge number of medical devices, followed by China and Japan. For instance, · According to the General Administration of Customs (GAC), China's exports of medical machinery and devices increased 40.5 percent in 2020 compared to the previous year, reaching USD 18.138 billion · According to the World Trade Organisation, the U.S. imports and exports of medical goods increased by 16 %, reaching USD 1,139.00 billion in value Henceforth for diagnosis, dependency of these countries highly increases on other exporters and many countries solely depend on China and the U.S. for the non-small cell lung cancer diagnostic equipment. Consequently, this may lead to a rise in the overall non-small cell lung cancer diagnostic cost. This increase in the price of the non-small cell lung cancer diagnostic may hamper the market growth if it continues to be the same. Additionally, if the lockdown continues to stretch for a long period, then import of non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market is estimated to get more restricted, which may further lead to a rise in the price of the these devices CONCLUSION It is estimated that the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak has significantly impacted the growth of non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market as the rising cases of COVID-19 worldwide the healthcare system had shifted its focus in curbing the disease, thereby resulting in the delay of diagnosis and treatment of non-small cell lung cancer. Thus, a negative impact is expected on the non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market due to the pandemic scenario. However, with the increase in lung cancer patients worldwide, the demand for non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics will increase in the coming years. Moreover, poor lifestyle, smoking, alcohol consumption, lack of physical activity and other factors will contribute to the incidence of chronic disease such as lung cancer, including non-small cell lung, which is anticipated to increase the global non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market in the coming years.
