Applying Basic Science to Clinical Use

S. James Adelstein, MD, PhD, from the Radiology Department of Brigham and Women’s Hospital, has written a paper entitled “Science Applied to a Clinical Need.” This important work addresses the question of how best to bring the extraordinary advances in molecular and cellular biology to the benefit of patients. His experience in fashioning a radiolabeled agent now commonly used in the diagnosis of coronary artery disease illustrates some of these issues.
