Alex's brain scan in the film is referred to as an "MRI." This imaging modality is commonly used on athletes who need to have the extent of tissue damage visualized by a radiologist.

The most amazing Human achievement I've ever witnessed
This movie shows the humanity, insanity, and personal struggle for perfection it takes to do things that no one else has done and few to none have tried to accomplish. Possible the best movie I have ever seen in terms of drawing you in, keeping a strangle hold on your attention, and not just rushing to the juicy parts but letting you savor the journey.
Alex Honnold you are an inspiration to the world. Never stop.
"What you are afraid to do is a clear indicator of the next thing you need to do." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
