Despite its advantages, experts have ‘grave concerns’ about big tech in health care

Google recently began working with Ascension — one of the nation’s largest health care systems — to collect the health information of roughly 50 million Americans, initially without their knowledge, according to reporting by The Wall Street Journal.

I used the hype cycle categorization to show where the top ten trends are right now and where I believe they might end up a year from now.

Dynamic Digital Radiography Delivers Cineradiography to Orthopedic Practices

Konica Minolta’s Dynamic Digital Radiography (DDR) is an award-winning enhanced X-ray technology that provides a series of individual digital images acquired at high speed and low dose. The resulting cineloop enables clinicians to observe the motion of anatomical structures over time, improving diagnostic capabilities. Because DDR cines are digital, they can be enhanced, quantified, reprocessed and replayed at normal, fast and, slow motion, as well as one frame at a time (freeze frame).
