considered a specialized modality of radiology that deals
mostly with invasive image-guided procedures. With advances in technology, interventional
procedures can be performed on several areas of the body with success in conjunction with using
live x-rays during exams. Cerebral aneurysms often can be in susceptible areas of the brain, and
usually, are considered somewhat high risk in nature. The use of endovascular coiling can prove
to not only be successful, but beneficial in treatment to…
mammogram is an x-ray vision of the human breast. The x-ray vision is used for screening purposes in facilitating the detection of tumors in the breast as well as microcalcifications such as calcium deposits that are critical in the detection of breast cancer. Mammograms used for diagnostic purposes in cases where the patient exhibits symptoms of cancer, and a tumor already detected in the breast.
The diagnostic mammogram requires more time, thus, longer exposure to radiation of x-rays to…
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…

Throughout life, there are certain technological advancements everybody experiences which affect their lives in either positive or negative ways. To be more specific, the field of photography is a field which has had some major technological advancements with imaging, resulting in the discovery of radiographs, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. The chain reaction of advancements from photography to medicine has helped the world in increasing life…
Advancement in Radiation Protection: Non-Lead Apron
People are exposed to radiation every day just by being alive on this earth. One receives approximately 3,000 µSv of ubiquitous background radiation a year, which means approximately 8.2 µSv per day (Howerton, Iannucci, 2012). This is known as background radiation and is caused by terrestrial, cosmic, and naturally occurring radon. On the other hand, during radiographic examination some degree of biological damage does occur during exposure,…
the day that a German Scientist named Wilhelm C. Roentgen accidentally discovered the x-ray while experimenting with a Crookes tube. This discovery allowed the inside of the human body to be viewed without having to perform unnecessary surgery. From this discovery, x-rays became “a key element in the identification, diagnosing, and treatment of many types of medical conditions” (http://www.healthline.com/health/x-ray#Overview1 ). Over the next century, Roentgen and others who followed his work…
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…
For my three health careers I chose radiologist, pediatric oncologist and athletic trainer. I do not necessarily want to go in the medical field, but if I were to I would want to work in one of these three careers. All three jobs require skills, reasoning and intuitive thinking. You might find yourself in a situation that demands fast thinking and problem solving, so you need to be prepared.
The first career I chose was a radiologist. To become a radiologist you must obtain a Bachelor's Degree…
help diagnose, students interested in this field need to understand the skills utilized because Radiology and Sonography both require different techniques.
For instance, Radiology uses electromagnetic rays to take pictures of the patient’s body parts. The most common use of this technology is X-ray. Radiology is used to see things such as fractures, pneumonia, and even breast cancer. Most people that want to become a Radiology Technologist take the path of getting a two-year associates degree…
