Expanding the Frontiers of Imaging

New RFA Supports Technology Development for Understanding Life at the Cellular Level

The microscope was invented in the 16th century, but it took another 200 years for scientists to appreciate its role in medicine. The invention of the X-ray machine in 1895 was another breakthrough that solidified the important role of imaging in human health diagnostics. Further advances in imaging technology — such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computerized tomography (CT) scans, and ultrasound — have allowed us to explore…
