Paper Abstract

The title for this luncheon address was thought up rather hastily during a telephone conversation between our Executive Director (Joe Yaver) and myself. Joe made it quite clear to me that as Executive Vice-President of the Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers it was my unavoidable duty to be here today and present this luncheon address. I am honored to be fulfilling that duty. The title is in many ways superfluous, but it allows me to make a number of remarks that relate to the general subject matter of this program - "Application of Optical Instrumentation in Medicine".
