Would it be productive to use computer imaging to gain more observatory power on using X-Ray microscopes? Something like the computer screen that Bashir used in DS9.

Actually it seems that they’re already doing that with viewing atoms and so on. They should concentrate on using that technology for medical purposes. It would help.

As you said the devise monitors on an atomic level, that would be of little use seeing as medicine is alot bigger than atoms. The smallest thing medicine looks at are cells, and they can be seen with conventional microscopes.

True about the cells but the thing about a x-ray miscroscopes is that you can see the viewed object in 3D. What would make it different is that you can see inside the body in 3D on a microscopic level and adding computer imaging to it would make it much more powerful.
