Dr. Joyce’s research examines the cultural, economic, and institutional dimensions of health care.  One of her projects investigates the perceptions and uses of medical imaging technologies in the United States.  Her book, Magnetic Appeal: MRI and the Myth of Transparency (Cornell University Press) investigates the development of Magnetic Resonance Imaging [MRI] technology, its popular appeal and acceptance, and its current use in medical practice. Professor Joyce also studies the intersections between aging, science, health, and technology. As part of this work, she co-edited the volume Technogenarians: Studying Health and Illness through an Aging, Technology, and Science Lens (Wiley-Blackwell Publishers).
