Once the image is procured, the radiologist sets the diagnostic. In addition, a surgical technologist assists radiographers in conducting inter-operative imaging. Finally, a radiology nurse would help provide patient care during radiological investigations or procedures by using their skills to identify and meet a patient's individual needs.
In my view, a professional medical team member is essentially empathetic. Given that the healthcare sector is the only working space that concerns itself exclusively with human well-being, it is of paramount importance that all medical staff be receptive to each patient's individual needs. Failing that, the risk of malpractice increases and, most notably, serious harm can come to a human being who was there to seek help in the first place. Therefore, acting on the Hippocratic Oath means more than doing your own part of the job right; it means that a proper level of interaction with the patient, his/her family and….

Radiology and Cyberspace
The creation of 'cyberspace,' or the sharing of information through email, on the Internet and on websites, has had a profound impact on nearly every field of human endeavor. Medical science, and particularly Radiology, has been particularly affected and enhanced by new technology. Radiology, by its very nature, has always been a leader in the use of emerging technology in the medical field. Now, new technology developed during the growth and expansion of the Internet is giving Radiology the opportunity to expand as never before.
What is Radiology
Radiology is the branch of medical science devoted to the use of a variety of energy sources in the diagnosis and treatment of disease, including x-ray, ultrasound, magnetic resonance, and nuclear energy. Diagnostic imaging allows practitioners to create images of internal body structures, including bones, tissues and organs. This usually necessitates a balance between using the correct amount of energy needed to….

adiology and Ethics
In the contemporary world of today, radiologists face a number of ethical challenges that are rather different as compared to the issues faced by other physicians in the healthcare field. This is due to the fact that the interaction between the physicians and patients is not like one that is in other fields. The issues that radiologists are challenged with on a daily basis include speeding up of imaging studies for patients, specialty care gate-keeping, wait lists, queue jumping and corresponding the individual and societal needs. Thus, it is required of every radiologist to persistently stabilize and re-examine the ethical and legal responsibilities that lies on his/her shoulders towards the patients in particular and society in general (Cunningham, eid, MacSwain & Clarke 170).
Ethical Issues in adiology

He proposed this technique as the solution to the problem of why some people do better than others in certain tasks, He likewise suggested cataloguing the differences in the size of the functional areas among individuals and correlating these with different talents and skills (Krotz 2001). Van Essen believed that his technique would ultimately lead to what makes people human or unique. rain mapping charts and determines specific areas, such as areas devoted to hearing, emotions and memory.
Dr. Joy Hirsch of the neuroscience department of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center discovered that functional areas are not areas but intricate networks (Krotz 2001). Her findings and projections point to systems of remotely connected brain areas as fundamental units that govern cognition. She also concluded that this assumption would be the guiding principle in research a few years from now. Dr. Hirsch maintains a lab at the O'Hare Airport, which turns out approximately….

Under conventional radiology, excessive exposure outputs a "black" film. In case of digital systems, good images are got from a large range of doses. With the help of digital fluoroscopy systems, it is extremely simple to get as well as delete images. There might be an inclination to get more images than what is required. In case of digital radiology, higher patient dosage implies improved image quality and therefore a propensity to apply higher patient doses than is actually needed. Different medical imaging works need different intensities of image quality and due to that doses that have no extra benefit for clinical purpose are avoided.
The quality of image can be affected through lack of correct levels of data compression and also post processing techniques and all these new challenges must be part of the optimization process and covered in the clinical and technical protocols. Local diagnostic reference levels must….

Others focus more on diagnostics rather than on direct medical treatment.
In that regard, breast imaging involves diagnosing diseases of the breast through mammography, ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and tissue biopsies. Cardiovascular radiology is the radiology specialty that uses X-rays, computer axial tomography (CAT scans), MRIs, and ultrasound to diagnose problems with the heart and circulatory system. Chest radiology employs many of the same technologies and tools to diagnose and treat medical conditions of the heart and lungs. Other radiology specialty practice areas include: gastrointestinal radiology, emergency radiology, head and neck radiology, musculoskeletal radiology, and reproductive radiology. Finally, radiology specialties can also intersect directly with other specialty areas of interest such as neurological, pediatric, and geriatric radiology.

Harnessing Unstructured Data in Radiology
The harnessing of unstructured data is vital to moving the field of radiology forward. There are methods used for the mining of unstructured data, with one of the most common being Natural Language Processing (NLP). However, there are some difficulties with the use of NLP in the radiology field, because NLP lacks the capacity to analyze free-text radiology reports and images. There is too much uncertainty to be addressed with NLP, but there may be ways in which it can be useful. In order to make that determination, this paper examines the current usage of NLP and other methods such as RadLex and Annotation and Image Markup for unstructured data mining in the radiology field, as well as the desired and sought out use of the mining of unstructured data. oth clinical decision support and research analysis could benefit from unstructured data mining in the field….

Future of adiology and X-ay Technologists
By tracing the historical development of radiography as a distinct field of diagnostic treatment, along with the evolving role of X-ray technologists in the delivery of quality health care within the public hospital/private practice model, it is possible to identify the attributes of this field that make it a foundational science within the practice of modern medicine. The ever-expanding ranks of X-ray technologists now serve a variety of essential functions within the health care delivery system, assisting in the cutting edge diagnostic assessment process that has improved patient acuity rates so drastically since the discovery of X-rays in the late 19th century. This paper will trace the development of radiography, radiology, and X-ray technologists within the medicinal realm, including a review of the field's past, present and future and the implications of this science for the further improvement of positive patient outcomes through preventative….

This involves knowledge of a wide range of medical subjects including equipment, diagnosis techniques and a number of different bodily systems.
I am also drawn to radiology because of the many areas to work with sophisticated technologies and techniques. There is an appeal to being at the cutting edge of medicine, and working in a field noted for its rapid pace of change.
Moreover, because radiologists consult on many different situations, the exposure to a wide range of subspecialties gives me the chance to learn more than if I chose another discipline. To be able to study a field that allows me to deal with diverse issues like oncology, endovascular and more in a single day is an attraction.
A expect a radiology training program to incorporate intensive study of the equipment used. The field is rich with diverse subspecialties and I would expect that an enormous amount of time goes into….

Radiology Program and My Personal Strengths wish to enter the radiology program for several reasons. First, I've always had an aptitude for science, and I particularly enjoy physics and biology, two disciplines that constitute a large portion of radiology. In addition, I decided some time ago that the profession that I chose would be one that involved service to others. As a result, I developed an interest in the health field. Several years ago, I visited the radiology department in a hospital where my cousin was employed. From that time forward, I was interested in pursuing a career in radiology. I investigated several radiology programs and decided that the program at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences was best suited to my goals. Your college offers a Bachelor of Science degree while most other colleges offer only an associate's degree. I hope to move to a management….

[MSIT] the fact that X-rays are not used in MRI make it much safer for the patients as the radiation hazard is not there. Also, MRI provides greater contrast between the different tissues in comparison to a CT scanner offering more detailed anatomical review, better diagnostics, and improved interventional radiology. y adjusting the contrast mechanisms and other imaging parameters, the MRI allows the radiologist to obtain a highly detailed image of a particular region of study. Particularly, the MRI is highly effective as a diagnostic tool for studying the anatomy and abnormalities in the brain, spinal column and other vital regions enabling the easy identification of pathological tissues. The availability of super magnetic contrasting agents has further improved the visualization and the quality of the images. [Joseph P. Hornak]

Radiographic AnalysisRadiological findings are the diagnostic mainstay in orthopedic surgery for most fractures. This technique allows visualizing the soft tissues around the fractures involving low energy, high energy, and pathological fractures in aged patients. X-ray findings make it possible to classify the fractures and initiate robust management such as reduction, immobilization, and stabilization. This article describes the radiographic pictures taken at different positions and projections and the associated structures and the rationale for requesting such radiographs.Figure 1Antero-posterior Ribs X-ray(Murphy,2020)The anteroposterior rib view is a projection used in the assessment of the posterior ribs. Unlike a standard chest x-ray, use lower kV and mAs in highlighting the bony structures in the area under investigation. While taking this radiograph, the patient is placed in an erect or supine position facing the x-ray tube, the posterior portion of the patient is resting on the detector. The patient's chin is raised to prevent inclusion….

Image quality, other than cost, is quite probably the largest issue that is faced by those that wish to use this new technology. Therefore, it is important to discuss and compare the differences between the image quality of CR and the image quality of DR, so that more can be understood regarding the differences between them. One study looked at the plate readers that are used for CR images, and found that there were enough statistically significant differences between different plate readers as to indicate that there may be problems with the….
