The 1970's have witnessed two dramatic innovations in the application of computers to image processing in medicine: computerized tomography (CT), a system where data gathered from an x-ray scanner are fed into a computer to produce cross-sectional images of the human body, and white blood cell differentiation (WBCD), a system that uses a television camera and a computer to replace the human eye and brain in the sophisticated task of visually observing and classifying human white blood cells through the microscope.
