The High Tech World of Medical Innovation Doctors equip a heart failure patient with a small monitor that sends data directly to a specialist. This allows medicines to be adjusted on the fly. A kid with stomach problems swallows a camera pill so doctors can have a look inside. Technology is driving innovation in medicine, from electronic records to space age procedures. Are there downsides, too? Will we one day hear "the iPad will see you now?" Join us as we talk technology and medical innovation, Wednesday at 9am on 90.3.
