Healthcare services are a core need for every society. In the wake of various diseases whose morbidity and mortality has been on the rise recently, is a technology that is poised to provide the crucial answers about many illnesses. It is a specialty that utilizes imaging technologies to diagnose and treat people. The relevant technologies at its proposal include the X-ray ultrasound, radiography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Computed tomography, and Positron Emission Tomography (PET) (Schlegel, Bortfeld, & Grosu, 2006). There have been efforts to help push the envelope further in, especially with the introduction of Tomosynthesis, which a revolutionary imaging technique. It is a technology that uses digital imaging and tube/detector motion to model 3-D images of body organs such as breasts. It is a handy tool against diseases such as cancer (Dobbins & McAdams, 2009). Another potentially huge success in the recent past is the new way of data collection at the centers, whose functioning is to help a radiologist make decisions regarding diseases. Giving them information on the diseases will make diagnosis and treatment a walk in the park.
The cases of cancer and other conditions are on a continual rise with every dawn. Since the only symbols of hope for a community or nation are its hospitals, they need many more centers. Medical practitioners need to be allowed to provide the services in their private practices so that the cost of diagnosis and medication could be lower and easily accessible.
Most rural inhabitants in the United States and other nations around the world are underdeveloped regarding infrastructure and hospital among many others. Therefore, patients who need radiology services have to travel to urban places. The easiest way to make them available to them, the government should support the recommendation to lower tax to allow seamless processes in the registration and operation of such facilities, and perhaps offer incentives.
