In the early 1970s, medical technology was quite primitive by today's standards. X-rays and other imaging techniques were low-resolution and basic surgeries were often quite invasive. However, since then, medical technology has advanced by leaps and bounds.
X-rays and other imaging techniques are now highly detailed and allow doctors to get a clear view of the inside of the body. This has led to far more accurate diagnoses and has saved countless lives. Additionally, surgeries are now much less invasive thanks to advances in technology. Doctors can now perform surgery using tiny cameras and robotic tools, which has dramatically reduced surgical risks.
