Modern medicine has evolved to an extent that would have been difficult to imagine, even twenty years ago. Advanced imaging technologies have given radiologists the ability to ‘see' the metabolic activity and location of pee-sized tumors, anywhere in the body. High-tech pharmacology research has led to the development of a vast array of drugs that can be prescribed for almost any named medical condition. And, nearly every day we learn of new genetic discoveries that have been associated with various cancers, heart disease, diabetes, depression, and other health problems.
