When I went to have my chest checked a few years ago (they had me
breathing radioactive gas...) the imaging was done by a beige
cube-shaped computer, about 18 inches on a side, using 8-inch floppies
(there were boxes of them on a shelf). Unfortunately I couldn't sneak
round the other side to see the front panel.
