Reference Entry
A definition of the term "real-time" is presented. It refers to technologies that record events and processes as they happen, such as imaging procedures that make use of moving pictures of body structures. "Real-time" also refers to computer systems that analyze data at the same speed as the data is received, which results in automatic control of a process.
