Paper Abstract

The application of biomedical techniques developed in physics, chemistry, engineering and computer sciences has been the subject of this symposium. In general, these provide exciting new opportunities for participants in the health care field but they also represent challenges. This communication will discuss the basic principles of the laws of agency and evidence and how these might be applied to the specific technology discussed in this symposium. Since the resources necessary for these imaging devices and other improvements in data acquisition, information transmission and archiving are of such magnitude, public policies have been enacted to assure both public access to and protection from inappropriate acquisition and distribution of this technology. We will consider the combined effects of these initiative in relation to the present social changes providing the environment in which these policies will be enacted.
