Hospital 2000: the interface of radiology within a combined "complementary-allopathic" medicine framework.
Department of Radiology, Boston Veterans Administration Medical Center, Tufts University School of Medicine, Massachusetts, USA.
The field of radiology can play a crucial role in the movement beyond allopathic and complementary medicine to a true combination approach. Radiologists are proponents of minimal invasiveness and are familiar with the overreliance on diagnostic imaging tests. Their experience can be used to design appropriate applications for technology and to plan research methods to explore the questions raised by a combination medicine paradigm.
