In medical imaging, digitalization can be like the wheel is to cars and like the inclined plane is to construction, or it can satisfy needs. This can relate to either technology or workflow – or both.
Neither MRI nor CT imaging could exist without digitalization. But determining whether digitalization is the actual technology or rather enabled its development is a matter of perspective and, therefore, inherently arguable. Similarly, CT and MRI have markedly changed the diagnostic process.
Recently, and most obviously, workflow changes have come on the heels of technology that has automated processes, particularly automation that has increased precision. When applied at a facility or throughout an enterprise, this technology has made practices more consistent over time. The continued adoption of automation promises to increase this consistency.
