can be understood as instances of 'doing distinctions' by both technology and human actors. This paper combines the analytical frameworks of Gieryn and Bourdieu to understand the reconfigurations engendered by the medical implementation of visualization apparatuses such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). It examines the reactions of radiologists to these transformations, which forced them to renegotiate visual expertise and to reconstitute their professional and disciplinary identity. The… Expand

Technology as an occasion for structuring: evidence from observations of CT scanners and the social order of radiology departments.

TLDR
A theory of how technology might occasion different organizational structures by altering institutionalized roles and patterns of interaction is outlined, showing how identical CT scanners occasioned similar structuring processes in two radiology departments and yet led to divergent forms of organization.

Making Images/Making Bodies: Visibilizing and Disciplining through Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
This article analyzes how the medical gaze made possible by MRI operates in radiological laboratories. It argues that although computer-assisted medical imaging technologies such as MRI shiftExpand
Appealing Images
TLDR
Examination of popular narratives used to discuss magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examinations in the USA shows that these narratives equate the image with the physical body, progress, and authoritative knowledge, and how erasure of physicians’ and technologists’ everyday work practices reinforces current imaging routines and policies.

HORIZONTAL CUTS & VERTICAL PENETRATION: THE 'FLESH AND BLOOD' OF IMAGE FABRICATION IN THE OPERATING THEATRES OF INTERVENTIONAL RADIOLOGY
In my essay, I analyse surgical and radiological practices of how the blood flow is being explored, rendered visible and treated. For this I use material of my ethnographic research, which IExpand

TLDR
Developments of institutionalisation and professionalisation of radiology in England and the Netherlands are presented to provide a small part of the background of this shaping of knowledge of shadows. Expand
The Transparent Body: A Cultural Analysis of Medical Imaging
TLDR
Jose van Dijck demonstrates the ways in which the ability to render the inner regions of the human body visible - and the proliferation of images of the body's interior in popular media - affect the authors' view of corporeality and their understanding of health and disease. Expand
From numbers to pictures: The development of magnetic resonance imaging and the visual turn in medicine
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) occupies an important symbolic space in contemporary science and popular culture. MRI—used to create anatomical images of the body—is considered the gold standard inExpand
The visible woman : imaging technologies, gender, and science
Hand in hand with such health crises as HIV/AIDS, breast cancer, and the resurgence of tuberculosis has come an explosion of scientific and medical technologies. As technology documents illness withExpand
Discipline and the Material Form of Images: An Analysis of Scientific Visibility
This paper is about how natural objects are made visible and analyzable in scientific research. It is argued that the objects scientists actually work upon are highly artificial, in that theirExpand
