This collection of essays prepared by staff writers of Omni magazine speculates on future medical advances based on research now in progress. The use of computers, lasers, and genetically engineered products is expected to have a dramatic effect on the patient's diagnosis, therapy, surgery, and rehabilitation. The book includes at the end of each chapter a time line predicting medical advances and an access guide referring the reader to researchers currently working on specific problems. The emphasis on high tech medical interventions rather than on preventive medicine, and the disregard for the financial implications of medical care, limit the book's plausibility, but it is worth adding to the larger health collection.
