for a short period of time change the way x-rays or other imaging devices act together with the body. When put into the body before the beginning of an imaging exam, contrast materials cause certain structures or tissues in the body seem different on the images than they would if no contrast material had been dispensed. By advancing the view of particular organs, blood vessels or tissues, contrast materials aid physicians identify medical…
for their occupation. It was not until high school I decided I wanted to pursue the medical field since I have always had a strong notion to help those that are in need. Soon after a coworker of mine suggested the radiologic technology program at Roane State Community College. I began doing research on radiography and I was very intrigued. My favorite subject has always been science and the physics involved in imaging seemed interesting. So far it was looking like a major I could stay driven and…
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a medical technology that uses magnetic fields to interact with protons in the human body, producing an image that allows doctors to diagnose disease and/or injuries (DiGiuseppe, Haberer, Salciccioli, Sanader, & Vavitsas, 2012). The idea of MRI technology had come from Raymond Damadian who was a medical professor and had founded the company that manufactured MRI scanners (Bergman PH. D, 2015). In the beginning, Damadian had been using Nuclear Magnetic…
With the many advances in technology it has greatly benefited the medical field as we know it. Technology has brought the medical field things as simple as electric thermometers to things like the Sonograms. Now that our technology is more advanced we are able to have the ability to cure certain sicknesses, help control diseases, and even detect cancer soon enough to eliminate death. The more discoveries we make the quicker we will be able to find cures for things like cancer, Alzheimer’s, and…

providers utilize ultrasound for prenatal imaging. But how safe is ultrasound
imaging? Is it safe enough to warrant a fetus’s exposure? Sonography is a safe choice for prenatal
imaging, but there are some suspected risks involved. However, the benefits outweigh those risks as
long as scans are completed appropriately, especially when it comes to the 3D and 4D ultrasounds.
Sonography uses sound waves emitted through a transducer to produce an image. In prenatal
imaging, the sound waves produce…
cardiology rotation, but ended up answering an imperative question about my medical future. Radiology is my number one career choice because it incorporates my personal interests and compliments my individual strengths. I am attracted to this field because of the intellectual challenges involved with making an accurate diagnosis. In addition, radiology provides a unique opportunity to explore emerging technology and solve existing medical problems. Apart from my personal interest, the major…
patients and get consulted by medical staff to inform them about the picture. There’s also variety of jobs and skills. Ultrasound techs may also specialize in obstetric and gynecologic sonography or abdominal sonography, cardiovascular sonography, and mammographic sonography. However, to be accredited into these fields, further education is needed. This career is expected to grow due to the aging and growth of population, the increasing demand for diagnostic imaging, such as health problems or…
1.1 Background of the Study
Ultrasonography is an excellent modality for examining abdominal structures including the location and dimensions of canine kidneys (Remichi et al., 2014). It involves a non-invasive procedure for examination of kidney diseases (Sampaio and Araujo, 2002) and offers advantages over radiography as there are no side effects of radiation and contrast agents (Nyland et al., 1995).
Canine kidneys are located in the retroperitoneal region of the…
Computed tomography (CT) is a computerized method that uses a computer to process the data collected from the passage of x-ray beams through the region of interest. The multislice CT (MSCT) means CT that the system equipped with multiple rows of CT detectors to create images of multiple sections. The data obtained from the patient will be transformed into “cuts” or cross-sectional slices of the human body (Romans, 2011). In early 1970, they use a single slice CT scan that contributes too many…
