One of the greatest innovations in medical technology wasn’t invented by NASA, although NASA did contribute significantly to its advancement. The algorithms used to create images of the body’s internal organs originated from processes that NASA developed in order to enhance pictures taken of the moon’s surface. NASA has been working on digital image processing since the 1960s to evaluate images taken by probes and satellites. This technology enabled the development of MRI and the related computed tomography (CT) scan. Today, many smartphone cameras include digital image processing in the factory settings.
