What’s the difference between MR and CT? Health technology explained.

Dec 01, 2021 - Reading time 1-3 minutes

Health technology is advancing quickly, changing the world and the standard of healthcare for us all. We wanted to ensure that anyone who is interested, even those without any medical or technical background, can understand the advances in health technology on the whole, as well as what we’re doing at Philips to create better health outcomes for all.
In the 'Health technology explained' series, we explain things like how AI can help healthcare professionals make better diagnoses to the difference between diagnosis tools like X-rays, ultrasounds and MRIs, and even how minimally invasive surgery works. For example, did you know that we can now replace heart valves via a file the size of a pencil point?
