I worked as a medic for the United States Air Force, after which I earned my college degree. I have been a staff technologist for more than 35 years, spending 15 years working with children and mentoring students. It was then when I noticed something with children’s X-rays. Their “scapula” or more commonly known as “shoulder blades” was seen in the image of the lung field. Eventually, I found a way for children’s lungs field images to be as clear as adults’. This was the inspiration to create the Browning Ball.
