Numerous technologies exist for probing into the human body. Approaches to peering into the body continue their development in attempts to improve precision and lower cost: computed tomography (CT), positron emission tomography (PET), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and ultrasound. Each of these sends a signal into the body to see how the body reacts to the signal and how that reaction affects the original signal or a return signal. Power electronic systems and components are used to power medical imaging systems.

Key equipment:

  • X-ray converters
  • MRI converters
  • Linear accelerators, cyclotrons, etc.
