New year...New Physical Exams...New Medical Technology

I started out this year with a complete physical. Complete fasting bloodwork, urinalysis, GYN, the works.
Today I finished my examination with a pelvic ultrasound and the infamous, breast smashing mammography.
Did I tell you that not only am I paranoid about my health but my medical provider is too?
Hence all of the poking and prodding that I endured..only to be asked what do I do to get results like that..which is a clean bill of health.
But today.. when I went in for my imaging tests, before I left I was given CDs of both my ultrasound and mammography images AND the imagining centers website, a password and such so that any future providers that I may have may look at the images too.
Now I worked in the medical field and not so long ago (about 2.5 years to be exact) you had to carry the actual films in a very large flat bulky envelope or have the facility deliver them after going through a hellava lot of red tape to the requesting provider in order to view them.
So, I could not believe that now you can take them home on a CD Rom, look at them and if you wish show them as party entertainment to your closest friends and guests..(I kid! I kid!.....well maybe a few people..LMAO)
Now I can't wait until next year how further technology has gone.
