Since Roentgen discovered x-rays in 1896, radiologists have had access to extremely powerful tools used to peer into a patient. Although x-rays are still used today, computers and other technological advancements have contributed to the development of extremely sophisticated medical imaging devices, such as CT, ultrasound, MR and PET scans. Dr. Richard Breiman, UCSF Professor of Radiology, explains how several medical imaging examinations work. He discusses how they are interpreted, as well as the beneficial clues they provide, which may help solve medical mysteries and contribute to patient management.
