Rushmer, Robert F. ; Center for Bioeng., Washington Univ., Seattle, WA, USA

The author argues that the technical revolution in biomedical sciences and health care initiated by massive federal investments in both basic sciences and clinical investigation will continue into the 21st century, using equipment extending from ultramicroscopy and microsensors to massive tomographic scanners. This equipment will help elucidate normal function and pathological process, diagnose diseases, monitor the course of illness, and assess the effects of therapy. In addition, emerging technologies will facilitate self-care and extend self-reliance in the management of many chronic conditions in an aging population
