This article presents an interview with Gerard W. Clum, president of Life Chiropractic College West. According to Clum, one of the latest developments in MRI technology is referred to as weight-bearing MRI. This is the innovation Life West is bringing to the chiropractic profession. Scans conducted with this technology are extremely revealing and will be of great interest to many health care providers, chiropractors in particular. The College is continuing its pioneering efforts in the field of computed and digital radiography. Digital imaging technology has been incorporated in the College's imaging curriculum as well as in the clinical experience.
