Ethics in Medicine:
The Depersonalization of Medical Imaging.
Sophia Antipolis, France
23 and 24 August 2018

 pring/Summer Term 2018.
 The 8th Meeting in the Series.

Healing and nursing, the main tasks of a physician, are not any more in the realm of modern medical imaging. The industrialization of medicine, including and most distinct in the service disciplines pathology, laboratory medicine and medical imaging, has turned sickness into a commodity and increasingly depersonalizes patients by standardization and interchangeability. Science collects infinite miscellaneous biological and physiological processes, but ignores individual human uniqueness in order to abstract the underlying operating mechanisms. Decisions are taken over by machines and relied upon without control. Artificial intelligence and its ethical implications will one of the main topics of the meeting.

The symposium will focus on human beings' right to empathic and personal treatment by physicians, also in the ancillary medical disciplines. Recommendations for further reading upon request.

By invitation only. A summary of the meeting will be published in Rinckside.
