Hospital Predicts Ten Emerging Technologies That Will Shape Healthcare Next

CLEVELAND, Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Imagine if a simple blood test could detect recurrent cancer earlier, while also predicting a patient's prognosis.

The innovations touch on avian influenza, electronic medical records, and various minimally invasive surgeries to treat uterine fibroids, to repair heart valves, and to remove organs through the body's natural orifices.

"Once again, we are seeing a diverse list of technologies that have the potential to make an enormous medical impact in the near future," said Michael Roizen, M.D., who chaired the Top 10 Medical Innovations List.
