CAD/CAM AND OUR REGIMEN DESIGNER

 

Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.

Albert Einstein

 

Back in the early 1980’s, if you did any “design” or “drafting” work, you were most likely working on a physical drawing board and tracing your ideas out on Vellum, Paper, or Mylar sheets using various kinds of mechanical pencil materials or maybe a Rapidograph ink applicator.  Maybe you used templates and lettering guides, or shape tracers or flexible curves.In the mid-1980’s came the first real significant influx of computerized design technologies.They were collectively termed “CAD” for Computer Aided Design.  If they were connected to manufacturing machinery, they were called “CAD/CAM” for CAD + “Computer Aided Manufacturing”. They were magical for their time. These technologies changed the landscape of designing and manufacturing.

Let us talk about oncology. Cancer is one of the major diseases of our times. Regimen used to treat this disease are very complex in nature. For some unknown reasons, there is no easy way to “design” a chemotherapy regimen (protocol). Four years ago, I told myself, “this has to change”. Here we are, after four years (so many ups and downs) we have one of the world’s finest regimen designer. We want to make a difference in the world of cancer treatment. We want to provide better tools to fight this disease.

What started as a small creative imagination four years ago is becoming a reality.
