Medical Imaging is the technique used in the creation of visual representations of the interior of a body for the purpose of medical diagnosis and analysis. It is used to reveal internal structures hidden underneath skin and bones.
It is also very instrumental in creating a database of regular human anatomy, this makes it possible for abnormalities to be detected. A variety of machines and techniques are used to show the activities inside the human body.
The technique adopted depends on the patient’s symptoms and the part of the body being examined.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is used to find problems such as tumors, bleeding, injury, blood vessel diseases, or infection. MRI also may be done to provide more information about a problem seen on an X-ray, ultrasound scan, or CT scan.
A CT scan unlike X-Ray provides a more detailed visual of nearly all parts of the body and is used to diagnose disease or injury as well as to plan medical, surgical or radiation treatment.
This provides a view of an area where a patient is experiencing pain, monitor the progression of a disease, such as osteoporosis, see the effect of a treatment method e.t.c; all without making any incisions.
Mammography is specialized medical imaging that uses a low-dose x-ray system to see inside the breasts. Amammography exam, called a mammogram, aids in the early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases in women.

Using bounced sound waves, this diagnostic medical imaging technique visualizes blood flow through blood vessels, muscles, tendons, and many internal organs, to capture their size, structure and any pathological lesions with real time tomographic images.
