    Computed Tomography (CT), also commonly referred to as a CAT scan, is a medical imaging method that combines multiple X-ray projections taken from different angles to produce detailed cross-sectional images of areas inside the body. CT images allow doctors to get very precise, 3-D views of certain parts of the body, such as soft tissues, the pelvis, blood vessels, the lungs, the brain, the heart, abdomen and bones. CT is also often the preferred method of diagnosing many cancers, such as liver,…

    Nuclear Chemistry: The Magnetic Resonance Imaging The evolution of medicine is quite interesting. It first started out with spirits, omens, and other mythical beliefs. Then, the discovery of science has allowed for more practical ways to examine and heal a body. First the simple tools came into play, then the advanced technology. As the years keep progressing, more and more discoveries are being made. One example of this is magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Nuclear chemistry has allowed for…

    MRI scan, is a type of scan that uses magnetic fields and radio wave energy to create images of the organs and tissues, such as the brain. It is a scan that is used to detect things such as tumors, infections and injuries. It is often used after an x-ray or CT scan is done to gather more information. This paper will discuss MRI in depth such as how an MRI works, its use in society, the differences between MRI and other scans and the future for MRI.…

    desk doing the clerical work I was oh so familiar with yet now I am doing it for a radiology office. Since being at Bay Radiology I have had the opportunity to talk to the technologists about their different fields of work. I have seen and used an x-ray machine before and observed a few ultrasounds but what fascinated me was seeing the MRI machine and how it functioned. I’ve been a test patient a few times and was a bit wary about laying on a table and being slid into the center of this…

    it has been widely-used ever since. The first use of nuclear energy in the medical field is for medical imaging which is a way of creating visual representation of what is going on in our body. Medical imaging began when Wilhem Rontgen discovered x-ray in 1895. However, at that time, the dangers of radiation was not known yet. Fast forward about 20 years later, contrast agents which are harmless to the body were used to visualize bile ducts, gall bladders and our digestive systems. By the 1950s,…

    MRI and CT scans are important in the medical field because they distinguish between healthy and unhealthy tissue in the human body. Doctors use these tests so they can see through a picture what is wrong with a patient. Even though both tests are important and helpful, they have their pros and cons. Many people may think that MRI’s and CT’s are similar because they both provide images on the inside of the human body. These two machines work differently and are used differently. MRI scans are…

    Ruiz, 2014). During a CT scan, a patient lies on a flat surface, which incrementally moves through what is referred to as a gantry (Sadock, Sadock, & Ruiz, 2014). A gantry is a round shaped structure that contains a motorized x-ray source (Sadock, Sadock, & Ruiz, 2014). This x-ray source rotates around the patient several times to obtain axial images at each degree around an individual’s head (Sadock, Sadock, & Ruiz, 2014). At each angle, the specific amount of radiation that is not absorbed…

    Radiology (n.d.), Interventional Radiology is a novel field of medicine that combines the expertise of a radiologist together with the knowledge of therapeutic intervention using advanced techniques using a range of imaging guidance modalities such as X-ray fluoroscopy, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to accurately treat a medical condition. By the same token, Baum and Baum (2014, p. S76) implies that using the same diagnostic imaging tools that…

    clients, we were able to see many people with different needs and we learned a lot. It was also a review with asepsis techniques and making sure not to cross contaminate. It was nice to meet a lot of new people and how they reacted to students taking x-rays on them and them having questions based on their xrays and why they were being taken. It was also a good experience since next year we will not have help from students but we will need to set up, take rads and tear down…

    Radio-Diagnostic Error

    • 4 Pages

    The purpose of much research into radio-diagnostic error is to understand the visual search methods (process) and the perceptive and cognitive processes (performance) used in the interpretation of medical images. Investigation into the reasons for radiological error began more than fifty years ago after a study comparing radiological techniques failed to provide an answer because of significant variability in the performance of the subjects used for the task [1]. Results found that chest images…
