What is medical imaging?
Medical imaging covers a very broad range of technologies, usually involving high tech machines and testing, and often involving radiation of various kinds. Because imaging is used in the diagnosis and exploration of so many conditions, an imaging specialist has access to an equally wide set of tools and procedures.
Imaging is most often used as a vital diagnostic and exploratory tool, tasked with revealing exactly what is going on inside the body without the need to operate. It can also be used to record and collect data, which is then fed into computer models that generate graphs and charts rather than transforming it into visual images.
What procedures can you find at a medical imaging clinic?
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
- Nuclear medicine
- Photoacoustic imaging
- Functional near-infrared spectroscopy
- Magnetic Particle Imaging
- X-ray radiography
- Medical ultrasonography (also called ultrasound)
- Tactile imaging
- Medical photography and nuclear medicine functional imaging techniques e.g. positron emission tomography (PET)
- Measurement and recording techniques not designed to produce images, things like electroencephalography (EEG), magnetoencephalography (MEG),and electrocardiography (ECG)
What should you expect at a medical imaging clinic?
Having probably been referred by an emergency department, your GP, or a medical specialist of some kind, you will be made welcome and every aspect of the imaging you’ll undertake will be explained to you carefully before the imaging itself takes place. They will take your full medical history, ask you questions, and answer any questions you might have. You will prepare for your examination, which could involve getting undressed but doesn’t always. Once the imaging is complete your technologist will let you know how it went, what they found, and recommend your next steps.
