Kari K. Lilja, Jari Palomäki

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionScientificpeer-review


    Advanced imaging technology with properties like a more realistic picture with extremely high resolution and new applications and branches like welfare technology where these properties are used also involves certain ethical challenges. The protection of vulnerable patients and the privacy of employees and third parties have not yet been discussed to any great extent but should be taken into account in designing, manufacturing and implementing the applications.
