Biotechnology in the 1980s and 1990s: A Brief Survey

  • C. Castellano
Conference paper


In this conference of physicians, technicians, specialists, and scientists, my point of view is that of a person working in the imaging industry, and it therefore bears a focus different to that prevalent in this symposium. However, I believe that this is an important occasion for an interdisciplinary comparison of different points of view. I wish to give a brief survey of the tendencies and the technological perspectives of medical diagnostic imaging with particular reference to gastroenterology. Perhaps it is useful, or necessary, before going on to gastroenterology to give an overview of what is happening in biotechnology. We take biotechnology to mean the full range of instrumental technology supporting medical and health care activity.
