Diagnostic Imaging Systems
Time to Read: 0m 53s
Diagnostic imaging systems are used in hospitals, clinics, and other medical settings to diagnose and monitor injuries and diseases. The equipment uses non-invasive methods such as radiography (X-rays), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and computed tomography (CT) to view organs, tissue, bones, and vessels in the body.
- Radiography: This imaging technique uses X-rays and gamma rays that pass through the body and are captured by a detector to create an image.
- Computed Tomography: CT scans, previously known as CAT scans, use computers and ionizing radiation to create images. These diagnostic imaging systems generate more radiation than X-rays but provide more detailed imaging.
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging: MRI tests are similar to CT scans but use a combination of radio waves, powerful magnets, and computers to take highly detailed images of the body.
