The article presents an insight on medical instrumentation and the adoption of micro-miniature electronic design in Great Britain. It states that doctors and nurses are swapping industrial scale scanners for nimble handheld units and even monitors that can be swallowed by patients. Such change in the way medical profession assesses and treats patients is, accordingly, presenting manufacturers, created by the need to balance performance and processing power with miniaturisation.
