How much can a picture mean to a patient? How much can it mean to a provider? And what if that picture is an MRI, instead of a photograph? In this episode of our Humanities section, we deliver 2 perspectives on imaging in patient care. On the one hand, MRI and CT scan can tell you a lot about a patient's medical history and active medical disease. On the other, a personal photograph may illuminate the social history in a way words may fail to capture.
