Science fiction as we all know, gives us a window into what the future may be like. This future environment shows us many instances of technologies that while quite ordinary in that particular fiction world, would have ground breaking implications in reality giving inventors something to work towards. A prominent example of this is the medical technologies seen in Star Trek. Like with all technologies seen on screen, Star Fleet’s medical equipment is far from perfect in a world that seems to continually find new ways to push the envelope on medical dramas. This week we ask which medical based technology do you think would have the greatest impact on a 20th century earth hospital? Do you think that the standard medical tricorder would revolutionize modern medicine or would having a EMH be for the greater good?
