Attention-grabbing computer graphics became a mainstay of American culture during the 1990s. With faster computers and complex software programs, many artists, graphic designers, and movie makers created elaborate illustrations and dramatic special effects.
 
Some of the most intricate computer graphics are three-dimensional images, used extensively in medicine. This technology allowed physicians to create detailed images and “see” inside a patient’s body in an effort to make a more accurate diagnosis.
 
In science, computer graphics were used to conduct research and produce images of items too small to examine without a microscope. For example, computer-generated images of the DNA molecule helped scientists learn more about hereditary disorders.
 
This technology became a powerful tool for engineers and architects, enabling them to see how components will fit together without having to build models.
 
Possibly the most visible area where computer graphics were used was in film. Hits like “Toy Story” and “Stars Wars: The Phantom Menace” likely could not have been made without computers. Advertisers also relied on this technology to create eye-catching promotions that appealed to a diverse audience.
