Top 10 Medical Technologies To Watch For In 2009

I love these kind of lists. Trying to peer into the crystal ball is always a most interesting exercise. Here's what the Cleveland Clinic says will shape 2009, as reported in this Chicago Tribune news article, "10 medical technologies to watch in 2009." I give you the list, and you'll want to read the full article to get a better understanding of what this means to our health and our lives. And your top ten are . . .

  1. Circulating Tumor Cell Technology
  2. Warm Organ Perfusion Device
  3. Diaphragm Pacing System
  4. Multi-Spectral Imaging Systems
  5. Percutaneous Mitral Valve Regurgitation Repair
  6. New Strategies for Creating Vaccines for Avian Flu
  7. LESS and NOTES Applications: LESS (laparoendoscopic single-site surgery) takes laparoscopic surgery to a new level by reducing the process to a small cut in the belly button. NOTES (natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery) bypasses normal incisions
  8. Integration of Diffusion Tensor Imaging
  9. Doppler-Guided Uterine Artery Occlusion
  10. Private Sector National Health Information Exchange
