          Abstract

          Discussions of medical imaging technologies often leave the connection between imaging, visualization, and vision ambiguous, which fails to explain the visual and technological nature of the images. I argue that this is because the standard way that account of image interpretation are constructed gets the explanatory order wrong; rather than looking to image use to explain interpretation, image use should be explained by image interpretation. An account of imaging that takes visual interpretation as primary has more explanatory power and provides new tools for analysis and critique of medical imaging.

          The complexity of fetal imaging: reconciling clinical care with patient entertainment.

          Currently in the United States, pregnant women may obtain both medical fetal ultrasonography for screening and commercial fetal ultrasonography for entertainment purposes. The proliferation of commercial fetal ultrasonography suggests that medical screening alone does not satisfy patient expectations regarding fetal imaging. We investigated the prevalence of nonmedical fetal imaging and patient experiences and perceptions with both medical and nonmedical ultrasonography in our metropolitan area. We initiate a dialogue to explore the distinctions between medical and nonmedical fetal ultrasound imaging and the role of entertainment imaging in the medical setting. Concerns about safety, false reassurance, and unnecessary anxiety that might be generated by nonmedical ultrasonography should prompt us to examine the expectations of women regarding entertainment imaging, current clinical practice, and the potential for regulation of this commercial industry.
