NAME

Medical imaging

DESCRIPTION

Medical imaging comprises different imaging modalities and processes to image human body for diagnostic and treatment purposes. It is also used to follow the course of a disease already diagnosed and/or treated.

JSON-LD is the canonical representation for SciGraph data.

140 skos:definition Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive biomedical imaging technique that uses a strong oscillating magnetic field to induce endogenous atoms such as hydrogen, or exogenously added contrast agents, to emit radiowaves that are detected and used to generate two and three-dimensional images of a living subject in the MRI scanner.

163 skos:definition Radiography is the use of X-rays or gamma rays to examine non-uniformly composed material; images are recorded on a sensitized surface, such as photographic film or a digital detector. Medical radiography includes examination of any part of the body for diagnostic purposes, such as detecting fractures or a bowel obstruction.

176 skos:definition Radionuclide imaging is the production of images of internal body parts obtained by cameras that detect the radioactive emissions of an injected radionuclide as it has distributed differentially throughout body tissues. Images obtained with a moving detector are called scans, whereas images obtained with a stationary camera device are called scintiphotographs.

200 skos:definition Three-dimensional imaging is a technique that combines many scans (from computed tomography, MRI or ultrasonography) computationally. Such images can then be manipulated by the radiographer or physician to aid diagnosis and surgical planning.
