One of the most innovative areas of science and technology is biomedicine. Progress within this field has led to a range of new options which not only open up new methods for a diagnosis and therapy of diseases, but also entail considerable risks. The contributions within this book analyse and discuss the problems involved from varying points of view. They shed light upon a multitude of new biomedical technologies and discuss ways of dealing with them responsibly.
