    One beautiful, sunny day in late fall when the leaves were changing colors and there was a little chill in the air, my sister and I were in her jeep with our mom scouring the area for sales. Tonya, my sister, treated us to Hardees biscuits to eat while on our search. We were all excited about different items we purchased from the various sales. The day was feeling like another normal day to look for yard sales with my family. As I stared out the window, thoughts of the peaceful day flooded my…

    MRI is a unique medical practice among other imaging methods because, unlike radiographs for example x-rays and ct scans and even radioisotope studies it does not use ionising radiation to create an image of the body this is good because if it does not use ionising radiation it will not have the effects that the radiation causes to the human body. But instead of using other means such as ultrasound to create an image it uses strong magnets and radio waves to create detailed digital images of the…

    CHAPTER ONE 1.0 INTRODUCTION 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…

    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…

    There are volumes that do specialise in discussing medical museums which include more human tissue, as opposed to other human remains that a wide variety of history and archaeological collections hold. Many of these important texts are written by Dr. Samuel Alberti, who once was the Director of Museums and Archives at the Royal College of Surgeons and currently works at the National Museums of Scotland (NMS). These texts, such as Samuel Alberti’s “Morbid Curiosities: Medical Museums in…

    I first became acquainted with the occupation of radiologic technology in high school when I had the opportunity to participate in job shadowing. I immediately chose radiologic technology as one of my first choices. I chose it because, like so many other students in my class, I had never experienced getting an x-ray or any other type of radiation modality growing up. I became interested in the science and anatomy aspect of radiation sciences and also was amazed at how a machine could produce…

    • 4 Pages

    Alternative Imaging for MRI in MS MRI is a great tool for medical imaging and widely used for Multiple Sclerosis (MS), but it has some limitations in lacking specificity1. New emerging techniques such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) have the potential to address issues not resolved by current MRI techniques. TMS is a non-invasive technique used for monitoring the central nervous system (CNS) activity and response in a pain-tolerated manner. It…
