The advent of fiber optics has proven to be a great boom to diagnostic and therapeutic medicine. In some ways it even rivals radiology in the breadth of its applications and benefits. In fact, as in radiology which made the inner body `visible' as never before, fiber optic has also opened much of the internal human body to view. Such viewing has greatly enhanced the discovery and diagnosis of disease and pathology. After diagnosis the same instrumentation is often used to guide the appropriate therapy and to follow the body's progress through its treatment and cure.
