Sept 1951 Cameras and surgery

Going through 100's of old Fortune Magazines from the 1930's through 50"s that belonged to my father and I am making a catalog of them. Half way through this project I decided to take a look at what was going on 67 years ago, Sept 1951.

The article begins. - TV around the power plant. Electric companies have taken the lead in putting TV to work for industry. To date, companies have purchased about 100 TV systems world wide and are using them to get views of water levels in tanks, flames in coal furnaces and the thing I find most interesting is they are using them in surgery. Color TV cameras are revolutionizing medical instruction. Smith, Kline & French were using TV's in the operating room to allow more students to watch surgery from further distances. If only the could see the technology in the OR today.
