If a good picture is worth a thousand words, then these images must be priceless. GE imaging technology from – MRI machines to high-resolution microscopes – offers incredibly detailed snapshots of the body, all the way down to the cell level.
But better imaging doesn’t benefit just patients. It also gives us a clearer picture of the past and future. With a CT scan, for example, you can discover what a 3,000-year-old mummy ate based on its bone density. Using a super resolution microscope, you can watch the HIV virus jump from cell to cell. An ultrasound machine can now allow you to watch your child’s facial expressions before it’s even born. Take a look at the images below to see how these healthcare machines are bringing to light the inner workings of the human body.
