Radiological technician Mark Davis looks at the chest x-ray of retired coal miner James Marcum, who has complicated black lung disease, at the Stone Mountain Health Services in St. Charles, Virginia, U.S., May 18, 2018. According to Davis, there are no digital x-ray machines in the county, except at a veterinary clinic, so the x-ray film has to be sent to a radiologist to be read, adding weeks to the process of diagnosis.
