The array of equipment available to the practitioner for use in diagnostics and therapy is continually augmented by new developments in various technological fields. This paper reviews several relatively recent outgrowths of medical instrumentation research. Several of the devices which are discussed already are in use in clinical medicine and surgery. One device (plasma scalpel) is still in the developmental and feasibility stage.
