Digital Image Processing

In the mid 1960’s, NASA and the A&D industry developed the technology to enhance images of the moon ahead of the Apollo missions.

The CT Scan

Introduced in the 1970’s, the computed tomography scan leverages digital imaging technologies to produce cross-sectional images of an object, allowing medical professionals to “see inside” without an incision.

The MRI

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) leverages digital imaging techniques to form anatomical images, map physiological processes and save lives.
