José Pascual Pérez Campos y Eduardo Larrea y Richerand han realizado una muy cuidadosa reseña histórica del desarrollo en México de uno de los grandes avances de la tecnología médica de este siglo. El impacto de estas tecnologías en el diagnóstico y tratamiento de las enfermedades ha modificado favorablemente la atención de numerosas enfermedades. Los conocimientos que sirvieron de base para crear armas de destrucción masiva, afortunadamente para la conciencia de los investigadores de este campo, se han convertido en un arma eficaz en beneficio de los enfermos. El grupo de científicos de Oak Ridge asociados con investigadores de diversas universidades lograron avanzar de los iniciales usos del Yodo para el diagnóstico y tratamiento de enfermedades del tiroides a diversos implementos tecnológicos que han permitido estudiar el cuerpo humano con una precisión increíble.

Healthcare is considered the most dangerous occupation - more dangerous than coal mining or building skyscrapers. One sector worthy of particular attention is nuclear power, an industry where — thank heavens — safety is king. In the wake of the 1986 Chernobyl accident, the leaders of every commercial nuclear reactor across the globe created the World Association of Nuclear Operators (WANO), with the goal of achieving industry-wide excellence.
