Technology provides additional opportunity for CDI analysis
by Jonathan L. Elion, MD, FACC
The value of a new technology is often not understood for many years after its invention. For example, the first film cameras were initially used to capture “photographic paintings” of landscapes, still life studies, and portraits, the standard subject matter for artists using more traditional media. It wasn’t until much later that the technology began to realize its full potential in fields as diverse as astronomy, microscopy, high-speed photography, and movies.
Computer applications in the CDI field are poised to make a similar transformative leap.
