The Medical Imaging & Technology Alliance (MITA) has announced a new initiative to highlight achievements in imaging technologies. Imaging Forward will explore historic innovations over the last two decades and ongoing technology developments such as low-dose computed tomography (LDCT), along with their impact on patient care.

“Imaging Forward puts a long overdue spotlight on the myriad ways in which imaging has transformed patient care and, more broadly, the practice of medicine by helping to improve diagnosis and treatment, avoid unnecessary procedures and lower costs by minimizing unnecessary procedures,” said Gail Rodriguez, executive director of MITA.

“Thanks to the investments made by manufacturers in research and development (R&D), for example, almost no one has to undergo exploratory surgery. Patients and physicians benefit from advanced medical imaging technologies that save lives while reducing long-term healthcare spending,” she added.
