19th Century:

The year was 1896 when Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen introduced his discovery of X-rays. Less than a year later, Elihu Thomson of GE builds electrical equipment specifically to produce X-rays. The technology is immediately recognized as having potential to greatly advance the health care industry through producing stereoscopic “roentgen” pictures, where bone fractures and foreign objects in the body can be detected.


21st Century:

“GE Healthcare brings High Definition (HD) to medical imaging systems with the world’s first high definition magnetic resonance (HDMR) system. HDMR will, for the first time, provide physicians with unprecedented image clarity in cases where patients are difficult to image due to movement, including Parkinson’s patients who suffer from uncontrollable motion and including children who have difficulty staying still.” -GE
