Diagnostic Imaging with Ionizing Radiation and Ultrasound

  • Isadore Meschan


Radiologic diagnostic imaging, in the conventional sense, implies the transmission of an x-ray beam through an organ or anatomic part and creating an image of this organ in relation to that radiation which has not been absorbed (so-called “remnant radiation”) (Fig. 35.1). The other imaging modalities to be described briefly are those where an image is created by a radionuclide being emitted from the body (nuclear medicine); and those created by passing a sound wave through tissues and recording the echo (ultrasonography).
