The patient lobby being very strong, the cost and sometimes lack of efficacy of the treatment have not prevented the FDA from approving the drugs. The NIH position statement when analyzing the impact of Molecular Medicine has been: Improving the Health of the Nation. This will be achieved in the following manner: • • • Early diagnosis and prevention: Especially for cardiovascular diseases, cancer and stroke. Better understanding of disease mechanisms: For example islet beta cell mass in diabetes, detection of inhaled pulmonary pathogens, neuropsychiatric disorders… Impacting new therapies like site targeted drug/gene therapy, stem cell imaging and therapy, organ/tissue transplantation.
They are also less standardized, and have thus not led to spectacular market successes so far. Examples are combinations of X-Ray C-Arm systems with CT and MR (see Chapters 9 and 10), or combinations of optical (microscopic and endoscopic) imaging with MR and Ultrasound. In Cardiology, the increasing attention to detecting vulnerable plaque in coronary arteries and to the treatment of cardiac arrhythmia in the Electrophysiology Lab has stimulated a renewed discussion about the combination of intra-vascular (mainly Ultrasound and Optical) imaging with fluoroscopic modalities like X-Ray (see Chapter 11).
