Our documentary focuses on one hundred years of medical history through the four principle categories of imaging : x-rays (scanners), MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging), ultrasound and nuclear imaging. We look at the forerunners of these inventions and the men and women responsible. Twelve Nobel Prize winners were rewarded for their role in this extraordinary medical adventure.Archive footage, often rarely, if ever, seen, will illustrate "yesterday's imaging" as well as today. Our crews witnessed seldom seen medical examinations of patients using imaging technology, in hospitals across Europe and the United States. Leading surgeons and medical scientists provide a fascinating commentary to the latest amazing advances in imaging technology, some of it still in development stage.
A unique journey into the human body !
