A CT scan is a type of X-ray that can show cross-sectional images of a specific area of the body. The machine circles the body and sends the images to a computer, where they are viewed by a technician. Each picture is viewed as a cross-section of ...
An MRI, which stands for magnetic resonance imaging, is a type of noninvasive test that uses magnets and radio waves to create images of the inside of the body. Unlike a CT scan, an MRI uses no radiation and is considered a safer alternative. The ...
Positron emission tomography (PET) is a sophisticated medical imaging technique. It uses a radioactive tracer to pinpoint differences in tissues on the molecular level. PET scans can detect differences in body functions, such as blood flow, use of...
A positron emission tomography (PET) scan is an imaging test that allows doctors to check for disease in the body. The scan uses radioactive tracers in a special dye. These tracers are injected into an arm vein and absorbed by organs and tissues. ...
In some cases, your doctor may decide that he or she needs a sample of your tissue or your cells to help diagnose an illness or identify a cancer. This removal of tissue or cells is called a biopsy. While a biopsy may sound scary, it's important t...
A computerized tomography scan (CT or CAT scan) is a series of cross-sectional X-ray images of your body. CT scans are used to examine your bones and soft tissues for damage or abnormalities. Often, these images can be combined to create a 3D pict...
A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan is a noninvasive test that uses magnets and radio waves to create images of the inside of your body. It allows doctors to see details of your organs and tissues without having to make any incisions. Accordin...
An X-ray is an imaging test that uses small amounts of radiation to produce pictures of the organs, tissues, and bones of the body. When focused on the chest, it can help spot abnormalities or diseases of the airways, blood vessels, bones, heart, ...
Lymph nodes are small, oval-shaped organs located in different areas of your body. They are found close to internal organs such as the stomach, intestines, and lungs and are most commonly noted in the armpits, the groin, and the neck. Lymph nodes ...
