Documentary Short: A New Kind of Light

The Evolution of Medical Imaging and its Role in Cancer Care

Medical imaging has advanced in remarkable ways since Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen devised the x-ray machine in the late nineteenth century. Today's radiologists can image the human body in intricate detail using computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear medicine, ultrasound, and other modalities. 


From diagnosing disease at its earliest and most curable stage to ensuring therapies are working, medical imaging has given scientists, doctors -- and patients -- unprecedented insight into how disease affects the human body. 


“A New Kind of Light” explores the history and evolution of medical imaging technology and its role in cancer detection, diagnosis, and treatment.
