Diagnostic imaging makes huge technological progress

April 15, 2005

The history of radiology is over 100 years old, having begun with Wilhelm Conrad Rontgen's discovery of x-rays in 1895. The last two decades, however, have seen the practice of diagnostic radiology change almost beyond recognition. This transformation is largely due to technical advances in equipment that resulted from fruitful interactions among the basic sciences, clinical medicine, and manufacturers.
