This law school casebook focuses on the regulation of medical technology. It encompasses not just legislative and administrative agency controls on the creation and use of such technology, but also less direct controls mediated through the systems of tort law, insurance, and intellectual property regimes, among others. This work is organized thematically rather than sequentially in reference to a product's life-cycle, and consider the many ways in which society attempts to manage the production and application of medical technologies, tracing the research and development process from laboratory to use in the treatment of patients.
