ecently, at a doctor’s appointment for my father, I was impressed not only by the level of his knowledge about my father’s condition, but also by the technology he used to make his diagnosis.

When I commented on this, he said that it wasn’t enough to know the human body any more. In this day and age, doctors need to know what technological tools are available and how to use them to diagnose and treat patients.
