Medical imaging has been used by doctors since the late 1890’s, when x-rays were discovered and soon put into practice. Since then, medical imaging technology has rapidly advanced to include ultrasounds, fiber-optics, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), CT and PET scanning, cardiology videos and more. More recent advances have allowed for data and imaging results to be shared among different healthcare providers and vendors and have made using medical equipment as easy as tapping the screen on a smartphone. Unfortunately, these improvements don’t come without their own setbacks.
