Medical Imaging: X-Rays, CT, MRI, Ultrasound, and Virtual Reality (38:04)
This comprehensive overview assesses a number of noninvasive ways to look inside the human body. Segment one addresses the limitations of X-ray and fluoroscopic technologies and introduces computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and ultrasound. Segment two describes how images are digitized and discusses the practical difficulties in achieving a clear image. Segment three demonstrates how computers can be used to enhance image definition. And segment four features two virtual reality programs that allow medical students to practice performing a craniotomy to remove a tumor and percutaneous rhizotomy to treat trigeminal neuralgia.

The Medical Imaging Revolution (52:06)
With advances in genetics and pharmacology capturing much of the public’s attention, it’s easy to overlook another rapidly evolving area of health science: medical imaging. This program fully explores that topic, spotlighting technologies which enable doctors to visually render the body’s interior at an astonishing level of detail. New possibilities for surgical precision are also featured.

The History of Medical Imaging (52:30)
Over the past century, Nobel Prize–winning scientists and doctors have worked untiringly to develop and fine-tune highly effective medical imaging equipment—tools that play a vital role in diagnosis and treatment. Combining rarely seen archival footage, interviews with imaging specialists, and incredible medical images, this program highlights milestones in X-ray scanning, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound, and nuclear imaging.

Radiologic Technology Careers Series (55:43)
This four-part series—endorsed by the Radiologic Society of America and the Associated Sciences Consortium—introduces viewers to a diverse group of doctors and technicians who are pursuing rewarding careers in the radiological sciences. After watching these programs, students will see that the field of radiology includes much more than X-rays.
