The grouping of some artifacts into the broard category of medical diagnosis is a somewhat artificial one. All of medicine can be roughly divided into diagnosis and therapy. Many of the major categories listed on the menu “Instruments” include both diagnostic and therapeutic artifacts. Even Art is devoted to subjectes that relate in some way to diagnosis and therapy. The items included in this category are grouped because they are purely diagnositic and are of a large enough number to justify being kept separate and not grouped together with therapeutic devices. Anyone interested in a specific subject should enter a relevant keyword and use the search engine in order to fully appreciate the information that can be derived from this website.
Medical diagnostic instruments may be viewed by clicking on one of the appropriate categories at the left.
