Nuclear Scanners Give New Views Of Inside The Human Body

Beautiful On The Inside: These Machines Reveal The Secrets Of The Body

If a good picture is worth a thousand words, then these images are visual equivalent of War and Peace. GE imaging technology – from MRI machines to high-resolution microscopes – offers incredibly detailed snapshots of the body all the way down to the cellular level.
It doesn’t benefit just patients, but 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.
