This fully computer-generated video takes a look at the history and future of medical imaging. It was created to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the discovery of X-rays by Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen, and first shown at the Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in 1994. The video was awarded the 1995 Video Prize of the German Radiological Society (Deutsche Röntgengesellschaft).
