Net’s forever: protect your integrity
I am not just talking about PET scans, MRI and robotic surgery, but the everyday accessible desktop-type technology that has transformed clinical practice and practice management. Being a reasonably early adopter, I remember the installation of our new state-of-the-art fax machine.
