The positron emission tomography (PET) scan and the computerized tomography (CT) scan are types of nuclear medicine imaging technology that provide a detailed view of inside the body. PET uses radioactive substances to obtain images and measure changes in physiological activities, such as metabolic processes, blood flow, and absorption. CT uses multiple X-rays taken from different angles to crate a 3D image of the inside the body.
X-rays are the most frequently used form of imaging to see inside the human body. It uses a focused beam and a special detector to obtain images of body anatomy.
Fluoroscopy is a study of moving body structures and uses a continuous x-ray beam that is passed through the body part being examined. The beam is transmitted monitor so that the body part and its motion can be seen in detail.
Ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body. It is used to help diagnose the causes of pain, swelling and infection in the body and to examine a baby in pregnant women and the brain and hips in infants.
Vascular ultrasounds are non-invasive painless tests that use high-frequency sound waves to create images of blood vessels, arteries, and veins.
Nuclear medicine procedures are used in diagnosing and treating certain illnesses. These procedures use radioactive materials.
Interventional radiology (IR), uses medical imaging to guide minimally invasive surgical procedures that diagnose, treat, and cure many kinds of conditions.
