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