Imagining technology advances and it is easy to overlook the benefits that it is providing. However, if we compare the latest technology with the previous generation then, the benefits become clear. For instance, X-Ray machines used to take an hour to take and process an image, only to find out in the end that the X-Ray image is not focused and the entire process had to be repeated currently, computational capabilities in an X-Ray machine has made it possible to complete the entire process in 5 minutes or less.
