1. What piece of equipment do you enjoy working on the most?

Every kinde of equipment, probably I would say those with configuring or something that has to do with softewr.

2. What equipment do you find most challenging?

I feel the the most challenging instrument would be the X-ray machine.

3. What would you do if you had to switch careers?

Stay in e field that had to do something close with biomedical technician.

4. How long do you plan on staying in this area?

This is my home,so there isn't any plans tomove.

5. Would you like to advance your career in any other technical fields?

No, this field in itself is very broad and have various options and as this field is constantly evolving it keeps us on our feet and helps us learn new things everyday.

6. What is DNA fingerprinting?

DNA fingerprinting or genetic fingerprinting is a technique wherein a DNA sequence is used for identification of an individual. It is mostly used in forensics. Polymerase Chain Reaction and Short Tandem Repeats techniques are commonly used for DNA fingerprinting.

7. What is Alzheimer's disease?

Alzheimer disease is the most common form of dementia. It is a brain disease caused due to tau protein misfolding. This disease is incurable. This is degenerative disease. It can be diagnosed through MRI scan or PET. This disease is found in generally above 65 years of age. Its symptoms include irritation, confusion, mood swings and aggression.

9. Explain what is blood brain barrier?

Blood brain barrier is caused in central nervous system, when blood circulation is separated from the brain extra cellular fluid (BECF). This phenomenon occurs along all capillaries. It consists of tight junctions around the capillaries that do not exist in normal circulation. Cells of the barrier actively transport metabolic products such as glucose across the barrier with specific proteins. This barrier also consists of astrocytic end feet and also includes a thick basement membrane.

10. Tell us what do you understand by MRI?

MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. This technique uses medical imaging that provides a detailed structure of internal organs; especially soft tissues.MRI provides good contrast between different soft tissues. A strong magnetic field is used in MRI which generates images and models of the specified organ. MRI works on the principle of nuclear magnetic resonance to generate image of nuclei of atoms inside the body.
