  • CT Suite: The Work of Diagnosis in the Age of Noninvasive by Barry F. Saunders

    By Barry F. Saunders

    In CT Suite the general practitioner and anthropologist Barry F. Saunders presents an ethnographic account of the way a selected diagnostic know-how, the computed tomographic (CT) scanner, shapes social kin and highbrow actions in and past the CT suite, the unit in the diagnostic radiology division of a big educating health center the place CT photos are made and interpreted. targeting how services is played and the way CT pictures are made into diagnostic proof, he concentrates now not at the functionality of CT pictures for sufferers yet at the functionality of the photographs for doctors going approximately their workouts. but Saunders deals greater than insider ethnography. He hyperlinks diagnostic paintings to practices and conventions from outdoor medication and from past old moments. In discussion with technological know-how and know-how experiences, he makes an important contribution to scholarship at the visible cultures of medicine.

    Saunders’s analyses are trained through strands of cultural heritage and concept together with paintings old reviews of realist illustration, Walter Benjamin’s issues approximately violence in “mechanical reproduction,” and tropes of detective fiction resembling intrigue, the case, and the wrongdoer. Saunders analyzes the diagnostic “gaze” of clinical team of workers examining photos on the viewbox, the two-dimensional pictures or slices of the human physique rendered via the scanner, equipment of archiving photos, and using scans as pedagogical instruments in scientific meetings. Bringing cloistered diagnostic practices into public view, he finds the customs and the social hierarchies which are formulated and negotiated round the weighty presence of the CT scanner. while, by means of returning all through to the nineteenth-century rules of detection and medical authority that tell modern scientific analysis, Saunders highlights the specters of the previous in what seems to be a preeminently sleek desktop.
