    • 1312 Words
    • 6 Pages

    In my paper I’m going to write about PET/MR how it was developed and how they both work together. Also on the individual level what PET does and what MR does separately.The importance in the nuclear medicine and how it help the patients. And the risk that it has on the patient's. Both are very important in Nuclear Medicine because we use this on daily bases in our day to day. It helps detect disease in patients and we treat them by using PET/MR and seeing how their body is functioning of course…

    CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION 1.1 Background of study An ultrasound test uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of internal body organs. Imaging tests can identify abnormalities and helps in diagnosing conditions. A Transvaginal sonography/scan (TVS) is a type of pelvic ultrasound used to examine female reproductive organs. This includes the uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, cervix, and vagina. “Transvaginal” means “through the vagina.” This is an internal (or intracavitary) examination.…

    Nearly all ancient societies practiced body modification through either piercingss or tattoos. These ancient practices are becoming ever more present in our modern Canadian society, especially tattoos. One writer says, “Permanent tattooing is the process of body modification by deposition of a pigment into the dermis” (Simunovic and Shinohara 525). In the past three decades, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has become increasingly popular in the medical field. Magnetic resonance imaging is a…

    X Rays Research Paper

    • 998 Words
    • 4 Pages

    X-rays is one type of electromagnetic radiation that can send waves through the body which makes us see through the body tissue but it doesn’t go through the bone. Therefore it is used in hospitals to see if a person has a broken bone or any diseases. Because it can go through clothes and the human skin it is also used in airports to see if anybody has a knife or anything dangerous with them. X-rays were first discovered by German scientist Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen in 1985. Roentgen found x-rays…

    The best imagining device that would be best to use to localize the tumor in the man’s brain is the MRI. This is because the MRI, which is also known as the Magnetic Resonance Imaging, is a scanner that uses a powerful magnet and radio waves linked to a computer to create remarkably clear and detailed cross sectional images of the body. The MRI machine can be used to view, monitor or diagnose various things. It can be used to identify and monitor abnormalities of the brain and spinal cord, and…

    Throughout this paper I will be discussing how Medical Imaging uses wave behavior, why it is needed, and how it captures information and energy. I will also be explaining the differences between the types of Medical Imaging and how the MRI Scan is used in the medical field today. Understanding Medical Imaging Medical Imaging has several different technologies that are used to view the human body. There are different types of Medical Imaging such as MRI, X-ray, CT, ultrasound, mammography,…

    • 5 Pages

    The history from the birth and discovery of MRI over the past years and eras is such an interesting story to tell from its discovery when its fundamentals originated as NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance) and its leaps forward have saved thousands of lives and yielded 5 Nobel Prizes in the process. [12] [15] The story of the origins of MRI begins over 130 years ago whom can only be described as one of the most amazing pioneers in physics today. Nikola Tesla discovered the phenomena of Rotating…

    Every year there are nearly 8 million bones broken a year, but who is going to be the one x-raying them? Well that’s where Radiologic Technology comes in. When you hear RT you will usually think oh that’s so easy all do you is look at bones and see where they are. We have 212 bones and we need to know every single one. We do more than look at bones. They also will do imaging exams like X-rays, computerized axial tomography, or CT, scans and mammograms. If you would ask any of the students…

    Medical Imaging

    • 3 Pages

    How exactly do medical imaging and geometry relate to each other, you may ask. They are certainly different things, but maybe not as different as people might believe. The property that connects these two subjects is 3D reconstruction, which plays a major role in the geometry aspect of medical imaging. First of all, I should explain specifically what 3D reconstruction is: the use of numerical approximation to rebuild 2D images by a computer taking the 2D data slices, reading the data, and…
