Excerpt: Welcome to the June 2015 issue of the JCCA. It is my privilege to be the Guest Editor of this Special Issue that has as its focus “Techniques and Technologies”. This issue consists of ten original research-based articles from an international group of authors; some of the articles published here represent the first time a particular topic has ever been investigated.
At first glance, the ten articles may seem more like a collage of unrelated topics rather than a thematic issue of the JCCA, but further inspection belies that apparent randomness. This is because, due to the explosion of knowledge in all health care disciplines, any thematic journal must by necessity explore the topics of Techniques and Technologies through the lens of multiple perspectives.
