Hey docs, your time's almost up

Abstract:
The medicine of the future will be preventive in nature. Farewell, therapeutic care. Instead of investing enormous budgets in treating chronic diseases, a routine scan of healthy people will identify the potential for the disease even before it develops. Nanotechnology, molecular imaging and microscopic silicon chips will be the magic wand that eliminates from our lives the three main killers: cancer, heart disease and strokes. Health-care costs will drop dramatically when diseases are eradicated before they appear, and this process will allow funds to be channeled into other areas, leading to economic growth.
