Today’s medical care requires a rapid adoption of new technologies. In particular, we see increasing use of micro-electronics in diagnostics, surgery, implants, pacemakers and other applications. Through micro-electronic systems, it is possible to make tools smaller and more accurate. Therefore, to be informed about new technologies and practical medical applications of Micro- Electronics and Computer Engineering, MEST (Micro-Electronic Systems and Technology Association) kindly invites you to participate in Symposium on Smart Medical Devices on October 6, 2010 in Delft, The Netherlands
