Example text

Applications of hybrid imaging systems in image-guided treatment have been in clinical trials much longer than those for diagnostic imaging. Examples are the integration of X-Ray Carm systems (also in hybrid combination with CT or MR) with intra-vascular treatment devices, and of MR with high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), and the increasing integration of real-time 3D Ultrasound in interventional treatment. 1 Hybrid diagnostic imaging For PET, with its high sensitivity but low spatial resolution, it was obvious that an anatomical reference image would greatly enhance its value for diagnosis and therapy planning in oncology applications.

These developments in electronics have enabled progress in medical technologies over a wide field, including real-time 3D imaging with ever higher resolution, image processing and computer-aided detection of clinically relevant data, implantable devices, sensor systems in and on the body, and many more. Genomics and proteomics: the last decade has seen an explosion of the knowledge on the structure and the functioning of the human body at the cellular and molecular level. A major achievement was the unraveling of the human genome.
