  • 1. What are Diagnostic Imaging Tests
  • What are diagnostic imaging tests Diagnostic imaging lets doctors seek answers about a medical condition within the body. There are a number of devices and techniques that can produce representations of the structures and activities inside your body. Your doctor’s use of the imaging form de...
  • 2. X-ray for Cancer
  • What are X-rays? X-rays use invisible electromagnetic energy beams to create images on a film or digital media of the internal tissues, bones, and organs. For various purposes, regular X-rays are done for the detection of tumours or bone fractures. X-rays are produced for medical purposes throug...
  • 3. CT scan for Cancer
  • What is CT scan or CAT scan? A CT or CAT scan is a diagnostic imaging technique which uses a combination of X-rays and computer technology to produce horizontal, or axial, images of the body (often called slices). A CT scan provides clear photographs of every body part, including the bones, ...
  • 4. PET Scan for Cancer
  • What is PET scan? Positron emission tomography (PET) is a sophisticated radiology technique that has been used to analyze different body tissues to distinguish diseases. PET can also be used to monitor the progress of such diseases in treating. While PET is most widely used in the fields of ...
  • 5. Flouroscopy for Cancer
  • What is Fluoroscopy Fluoroscopy is a study of moving body structures – similar to a “film” X-Ray. A continuous X-Ray beam is transmitted through the inspecting body component. The beam is transmitted to a TV-like display, enabling precise visualization of the body part and its motion. A...
  • 6. MRI Scan for Cancer
  • How does an MRI scan work? The MRI is a large, cylindrical (tube-shaped) system that generates a powerful magnetic field around the patient and sends radio wave pulses from a scanner. The intense magnetic field allows the body’s hydrogen atoms to align themselves around the same axis. Out of...
  • 7. Ultrasound for Cancer
  • What is an ultrasound? An Ultrasound technique is a non-invasive diagnostic technique (the skin is not pierced) that is used to determine structures of soft tissue such as muscles, blood vessels and organs. Ultrasound uses a transducer, which sends out ultrasonic sound waves at too high a fr...
