There has been great strives made in Medical. Here are some of the procedures used


accelerated critical neural pathway formation
The full scientific name of the procedure Bashir underwent at age seven. It involves increased growth of the neural networks in the cerebral cortex.

Aortal Graft
A proceedure which patches a defect or wound in the Aorta on a humanoid.

Autonomic Response Analysis Scan
This form of medical analysis, commonly referred to as an ARA scan, is analogous to a 20th century lie detector test and is capable of determining whether an individual is telling the truth or not. Because it uses a baseline comparison with known recorded responses, it is only useful for species whose response have been documented and recorded.

A Physicial uses this proceedure to determine cause of death.

Basilar Arterial Scan
This procedure is used to detect damage to the basilar arteries of the brain.

Bicaridine Treatment
Regenerative therapy for fracture patients. It is used as a substitute in patients that are allergic to metorapan.

Bi-Spectral Analysis
This procedure is sometimes used on Trill symbionts and requires that an incision be made in the host body for the insertion of a medical scanner.

Blood-Gas Analysis
Used to determine the ratio of gasious chemicals in a patient's blood, such as Nitrogen, Oxygen and others.

Brain Circuitry Pattern
Medical diagnostic image mapping neural activity in a humanoid brain. The BCP of each individual is unique, and this serves as a postive means of identification.

Cardiac Induction
Surgical procedure in which a patient's diseased or injured heart is replaced by an artificial device.

Cardiac Replacement
Surgical procedure in which a patient?s diseased or injured heart is replaced by an artificial device. The technique was developed by Dr. Van Doren.

Cellular Metamorphosis
Process allowing an individual to assume another's form.

Cerebro-Cortical Scan
CCS scans are designed to assess the integrity of the cerebral cortex. The technique and theory take their roots in MRI and CAT scanning technology adopted in the late 20th century. Cerebrocortical scans can detect a variety of micro and macrocellular insults to the cerebral cortex and also assess the integrity of integrated pathways. The scans also can assess the integrity of the cerebral macro and microvasculature. It can also be reconfigured to assess infection if this is suspected. This technique can also be used to evaluate brain-wave pattersn, unique to an individual as it assesses the pathway status.

Code White Resuscitation
This procedure is utilized on patients who have been brain dead for a very short period of time.

Coronary Bypass
Coronary bypass is a technique adopted in the mid 20th century to allow surgical procedures on the heart without disrupting the flow of blood to other organs. The technique involves cannulation (placing a big needle or tube) into the two great venous structures and into the aorta. The blood is then passed through a bypass machine which keeps the blood warm and anticoagulated. The technique, though essentially unchanged in theory, continues to be used in a more streamlined form today.

Corollary--CABG--Coronary Arterial Bypass Grafting
This is a technique also generically referred to as a "Bypass" in days past in which the coronary arterial supply, having been occluded or markedly reduced in diameter by atherosclerotic plaques, is physically bypassed by using another vessel or artificial tubing. The result is to restore oxygen and blood supply to the myocardium.

Cortical Protein Series
This is a scan that looks for the development and constitution of proteins in the cerebral cortex of humanoids. The scan evaluates proteins and enzymes in these cells and determines any abnormalities. It also can look for foreign proteins or proteins from infectious agents. The test is useful in diagnosing specific serotypes of infectious agent/virus.

Cortical Scan
Pseudonym for Cerebrocortical scan.

CPK Enzymatic Therapy
CPK, or creatinine phosphokinase, is a marker of muscular damage. It is mostly used to diagnose and treat cardiac damage.

CPK Levels
A medical test, CPK or creatinine phosphokinase, is a marker of muscular damage. It is mostly used to diagnose cardiac damage.

Old practice of cryogenically freezing a human just after death in the hopes that future medical advances would render their sickness curable. Some cryogenically frozen bodies were actually sent into space in orbiting satellites for long term storage.

Medical procedure used to slow down biological functions in a critically injured patient, allowing the physician more time to correct the malady.

Direct Reticular Stimulation
Medical procedure in which electrical energy is applied directly to the nervous system of a humanoid patient in an attempt to revive neural activity. A device called a neural stimulator is used in this procedure.

DNA Referance Scan
Medical test to confirm an individual's identity by matching DNA patterns.

DNA Resequencing
A procedure in which a subject is genetically engineered for specific traits. It is illegal except to correct severe birth defects, but it was going on on Adigeon Prime in 2348, when Bashir's parents had it done to him. Any individual discovered to have been so treated is barred from serving in Starfleet or practicing medicine, in order to discourage the creation of genetic "supermen" like Khan Singh. In some instances the subject suffers incurable mental side effects.

Electrophoretic Analysis
A process by which proteins are identified by putting them on a gel and running an electric current through the gel, then staining the gel and measuring how far the proteins moved in comparison to a group of standard proteins that were also put on the gel (bigger proteins move slower, in general.)

Encephalogiraphic Polygraph Scan
A brainwave scan used to determine truthfulness during questioning.

Hexadrin Therapy
This therapy is used to treat, but not cure, Cardassian victims of Yarim Fel Syndrome.

Medical test that records and measures brain wave activity.

Memory Wipe Procedure
This medical procedure is used to selectively remove memories from a subjects mind. Although successful on a variety of humanoid races, it has proven ineffective on Mintakans and Boraalans.

Microcellular Scan
Gives a very detailed scan of humanoid cells.

Motor Cortex Reconstruction
This procdure is to repair neurological damage. The first step in the procedure involves establishing the axon connection and testing for synaptic potentials. After repairing any damaged preganglionic fibers, the final step involves restoring the nerve sheath with a myelin regenerator.

Mycardial Enzyme Balance
Medical test used in surgical, particularly cardiac, procedures.

Neural Pathway Induction
This procedure is designed to stop the disruption of an individual's neural pathways that can occur after exposure to certain energy discharges. Although it can take weeks for the effects of such a disruption to appear, the victim must be treated at an appropriate medial facility in order to prevent death.

Neural Response Analysis
This is a test that measures the brain's voluntary and autonomic responses to stimulation. It can also be configured to measure nerve conduction velocities and responses in the peripheral nervous system. It is often employed in shuttle and fighter pilots as well as starship helmsmen to measure responses and reaction times. It can also be used to measure residual neural activity following cerebral insults.

Neural Imagining Scan
Medical diagnostic scan used to test the acuity of the patient's visual cortex.

Neurographic Scan
A level 4 neurographic scan, sometimes used to look for possible causes of hallucinations or pyschogenic reactions, is capable of detecting small defects in the parietal lobe of the brain.

Neuropolaric Induction
This procedure is necessary to repolarize the neural sheaths of a patient whose basal ganglia have begun to depolarize due to unusual neural activity.

Neurogeneration Procedures
These procedures are used to treat, but not cure, Cardassian victims of Yarim Fel Syndrome.

Neurosynapthic Technique
Procedure used on the planet Tilonus IV in an attempt to extract information from Commander William Riker, captured there in 2369. Using neurosomatic techniques, his captor's created a delusional world in which Riker believed he was an inmate at the Tilonus Institute for Mental Disorders.

Osmotic Pressure Therapy
This procedure is sometimes required to stabilize the cell membranes of infant's after a fetal transport.

Ostreographic Series
This is the modern descendent of the X-Ray. This test analyses the integrity of bone and looks for fracture but can also evaluate ligamentous and tendinous damage as well as musculature injury. There is no radiation used and so the risk is minimal to the patient.

Protein Synthesis Test
This is a test that evaluates not only cellular metabolic activity but also assays genetic integrity as well. It measures exactly what is stated, protein synthesis but does so by also evaluating the degree of transcription of DNA to RNA as well as the Translation of that RNA into a protein. It also evaluates the effectiveness of cellular transport of the protein. The utility of this test comes in evaluating cellular metabolism, presence of infectious agents and the like.

Retina Scan
Retinal scans are often used to clear Starfleet officers before viewing or accessing secured information. High resolution scans of the subject's retina reveal a distinct pattern of blood vessels which are matched to a Starfleet database.

Van Doren Cardiac Replacement Procedure
Using the Van Doren Procedure, an artificial heart can be implanted within a humanoid patient with only a 2.4% mortality rate. One of the most famous recipients of an artificial heart is Captain Jean-Luc Picard, who lost his heart in a fight with a group of Nausicaans in 2327.

Vascular Regeneration Therapy
This is a therapy that is used to, as the name states, regenerate damaged vessels as can often happen in the case of infection, anaphylaxis, and with old age. The therapy works on a principle similar to that of dermal regeneratoin and stimulates the endothelial cells of the vascular wall toregenerate and divide. The risk of neoplasia is minimal as long as the therapy is contiunued only for a short time.
