instrument used to measure
Visual examination of the interior of organs and cavities with a specialized lighted instrument called an endoscope
Radiographic procedure that uses a fluorescent screen instead of photographic plate to produce a visual image from x-rays that pass through the patient, resulting in continuous imaging of the motion of internal structures and immediate serial images.
Radiographic technique that sues electromagnetic energy to produce multi-planar cross-sectional images of the body
Diagnostic technique that produces an image of an organ or area by recording the concentration of a radiopharmaceutical substance called a tracer, usually introduced into the body by ingestion, inhalation, or injection.
production of captured shadow images on photographic film through the action of ionizing radiation passing through the body from an external source
radiographic technique that produces a film representing a detailed cross-section of tissue structure at a predetermined depth
Narrow beam of x-rays with a contrast medium or without a contrast medium that targets a specific organ or body area to produce multiple cross-sectional images for detecting pathological conditions such a s tumors or metastases.
Nuclear imaging study that combines CT with radoopharmaceuticals to produce a cross-sectional image of radioactive disbursements in a section of the body to reveal the areas where the radiopharmaceutical is being metabolized and where there is a deficiency in metabolism; useful in evaluating Alzheimer disease and epilepsy
Nuclear imaging study that scans organs after injection of a radioactive tracer and employs a specialized gamma camera that detects emitted radiates to produce a three-dimensional image from a composite of numerous views; used to show how blood flows to an organ and helps determine how well the organ is functioning
Imaging technique that uses high-frequency sound waves that bounce off body tissues and are recorded to produce an image of an internal organ or tissue.
Surgical joining of two ducts, vessels, or bowel segments to allow the flow form on to the other
Process of burning abnormal tissue with electricity, freezing, heat, or chemicals; usually performed to destroy damaged or diseased tissues or coagulate blood vessels
