Abstract:

The electronic computers produced in recent years constitute the greatest achievement of the human mind, and open a now era in science and technology, The theoretical and practical basis for the use of electronic computers in medicine is their ability to perform mathematical and logical computations of enormous complexity, in the shortest time, operating on more quantitative data than the human memory can store. Any problem presented as a continuous sequential chain of logical operations can be solved by an electronic computer.
