Modern medicine employs complex technical devices for diagnostics and therapy. With magnetic resonance imaging, high quality pictures of body structures can be recorded and can be evaluated quantitatively. Miniaturized endoscopes allow physicians to perform minimally invasive surgery on small joints, and the latest generation of hearing aids allows persons with impaired hearing to perceive voices and sounds with a substantially improved quality.
