I doubt the doctors and nurses threw their hands in the air. If you have a patient with a head injury or possible stroke, for example, then you may very well need a CAT scan or MRI to determine the extent of injury and what treatment is needed, particularly whether brain surgery is required. And CAT scans and MRI's are not like x-rays, you need a computer to translate data into an image humans can interpret. Even a lot of blood tests are currently automated - I doubt most labs could even do simple blood chemistry tests now without automation.
