In brief: Digital

Just like typewriters and CD's the film box is a thing of the past.
Radiology is almost exlusively by computer in the US.

In brief: Mostly online

Most radiologic examinations - plain x-ray, ct scan, MRI scan - are done digitally and the output can be seen on a video screen without the need to expose or process film. This is more efficient, saves resources and can be easily transmitted to other parts of the country or the world.
