Are you or a loved one about to undergo a medical scan? Many of us give little thought to an MRI or CT scan until we need one ourselves. Understanding Medical Scans was created by NIBIB to help you take the first step to learn about medical imaging so you can ask your provider informed questions about these important diagnostic and treatment tools.
You can also learn about the latest imaging research funded by NIBIB. From designing new child-friendly MRI tools to researching ways to decrease radiation, NIBIB-funded researchers are making strides every day towards creating better technologies to help doctors see inside the body and improve human health.
With question-based navigation, images, and videos, NIBIB hopes to make information about medical imaging easily available anywhere.
