  • The Pros And Cons Of Forensic Radiography

    Forensic radiography can be defined as a specialized area of medical imaging using radiological techniques to assist physicians and pathologists in matters related to the law. It can be used in anything from a double homicide case to an accidental drowning case. This new use of imaging helps to decrease the use of an invasive autopsy when it is not needed. However, it is very useful in cases involving a crime of some kind. It can be used for anything ranging from personal identification through…

  • X Rays History

    In 1895, x-rays were discovered by Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen. He was a Professor at Wuerzburg University which was in Germany. He worked with a cathode-ray tube in which he observed a fluorescent glow of crystals on a table near the tube. The tube that Roentgen was working with at the time was made of a glass envelope with positive and negative electrodes filled in it. The air that was in the tube was let out. When a high voltage was applied, the tube produced a glow that was fluorescent. He then…

  • Explain The Signs And Early Detection Of Heart Disease

    Technology has advanced significantly that now a simple cholesterol test or Electrocardiogram (EKG) is not sufficient to help people who may experience a heart attack in spite results of normal cholesterol. Newer imaging technology such as, CT scans, MRI, 3-dimensional echocardiography (3-D echo) and PET/CT scans have changed the game by being less invasive and less expensive. Computed Tomography Angiography (CTA) is a diagnostic tool used for early detection to find…

  • Essay On Radiography

    Radiography is the process of producing x-ray pictures, also known as RADIOGRAPHS. X-rays were discovered on November 8, 1895 by Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen in Germany at the University of Wurzburg. Radiographs are produced through the use of radiation. There are three different types of radiation. These include PRIMARY RADIATION, REMNANT RADIATION, and SCATTER RADIATION. Primary is the radiation that leaves the tube, remnant is the “exit radiation” that passes through the image receptor, and…

  • Arterial Wall Essay

    ultrasound image with the largest (true) diameter; and thus a guarantee that the far wall intima–media thickness will be correctly measured (90_ angle between ultrasound array and arterial wall). A poorly visualized near wall may indicate a non-optimal imaging view. Furthermore the leading edge of the near wall intima–lumen interface is used when measuring lumen diameter (see below and Fig. 4). The leading edge echo from the lumen–intima interface and from the media–adventitia interface of the…
