Radiographic cross sectional electronically created image using a small beam of radiation
Deep structures of the body are imaged by recording the reflections or echoes of sound waves directed in the tissues
Diagnosis of disease by the administration of a radiographic material (isotope)
X-ray of the breast
a technique that uses magnetic fields and radio waves to produce computer-generated images that distinguish among different types of soft tissue; allows us to see structures within the brain
Radiographic evaluation of the circulatiry system. use of contrast media to study areas such as the vascular and nervous systems (IR)
(medicine) the treatment of disease (especially cancer) by exposure to radiation from a radioactive substance, using high doses of ionizing radiation.
Positromemission Tomography utilizes an injection of a radio nuclide combined w/ sugar. Used often w/ CT. Used for cancer staging.
Digital image stored on an imaging plate rather than film. Images then transfer via computer
Converts x-ray directly into a digital image. No imaging plate necessary.
Picture archive communication system where you house all the digital images.
