World changing images

BBC Radio 4 has just concluded a wonderful series on medical imaging that overs everything from the microscope, to ultrasound, to the brain scanner.

The series is five 15 minute programmes that tackles the technology and its controversies. The brain scanning programme is particularly good and shows both ends of the spectrum of enthusiasm for the use of functional brain scans to understand human nature.

Because of the BBC’s black hole of death archive, the programmes will start being sucked into the void in three days time, so do catch them before then.

The programmes also cover DNA imaging and X-rays and the website apparently has a gallery of images on but I have given up trying to find them on the dreadful Radio 4 website.
