Imaging Forward: How medical imaging is transforming medicine


Imaging has contributed to significant advances in healthcare delivery, leading to better health outcomes and reduced costs. Technology that was once unimaginable is now the medical standard of care.

But that is just the tip of the iceberg. The next generation of imaging technologies will not only detect the location of a tumor, it will provide details about the molecular structure of the abnormal tissue within a single scan. In other words, imaging has not just obviated the need for exploratory surgery — it may also soon render biopsies obsolete.

That’s why MITA has launched the Imaging Forward campaign: to highlight the groundbreaking innovations in medical imaging technologies and the benefits of these advances on the practice of medicine. Here are some interesting facts about medical imaging you may not know.
