The beginning ofthe overseas Acoustical Imaging Symposium sequence should be traced to 1967, whilst a gathering on acoustical holography was once held in C alifornia. In these days, acoustical holography was once on the innovative of study yet, because the significance of this topic waned, so the identify of the sequence was once replaced from Acoustical Holography to Acoustical Imaging in 1978. The early Symposia have been held at a number of venues within the usa. In 1980. the sequence grew to become overseas, with the Symposium that 12 months occurring in Cannes in France. The development now could be to attempt to met alternately within the united states and in one other a part of the area in order that lively researchers in all places can with ease attend at a pretty excessive frequency. It used to be a good privilege for us in Bristol within the uk to be selected to host the twenty fifth Symposium, which convened on 19 March 2000 and unfold over 4 days. We have been blessed not just through strong climate, but additionally via the attendance ofnearly a hundred pa rticipants who got here from 17 c ountries. a number of papers have been authorised for presentation, both orally or as posters. no matter if an oral presentation or a poster, all have been thought of to have equivalent benefit, and no contrast is made among them within the released complaints. there have been no parallel classes, so each player may attend each presentation. The re sultant disciplinary go fertilisation maintained the t radition of previous Symposia.

Example text

Medical technologies (devices) typically emerge as derivatives of technologies developed for other purposes; the massive R&D programs conducted by the aerospace, defense, telecommunications, and computer industries during the latter half of the 20th century produced important new technologies, a number of which were adapted for medical purposes2. The new technologies derived from investigations that are problem-solving in nature, in contrast with the biological/biomedical sciences where research is hypothesisdriven.

1996;2000). Indeed this set has to be established by analysing a high number of clinical cases and by comparison with some kind of gold standard. Further progress is to be expected from new techniques, which are being, introduced such as: elastography, contrast echography and second harmonic imaging. The introduction of these techniques has proceeded to a more or less clinical phase of explorations. Applications are proceeding towards the fields of tissue differentiation and tumour diagnosis.

Design-directed research should be on the same level of importance as hypothesis-driven research. 2. A research/development management scheme based on the NSF ERC model should be adopted. 3. The incipient NCI vision for a discovery-to-application systemic model including the researcher, the developer (industry), the regulator, and the payer should supplant the existing disconnected process. The NCI vision to integrate all elements of the discovery-to-application continuum is an innovative and important concept.
