Summary
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. Filmed at French facilities on the leading edge of the global wave of medical imaging innovation, the video illustrates the benefits of MRI and PET scan technology in diagnosing trauma-related injuries, breast cancer, prenatal and infant health problems, and potential heart attacks. Endoscopic procedures for detecting intestinal and colon cancers, including an orally administered video capsule, are also shown.
