B.Voc In Medical Imaging Technology
Medical Imaging is the technique and process of creating visual representations of the interior of a body for clinical analysis and medical intervention as well as visual representation of the function of some organs or tissues. Medical imaging seeks to reveal internal structures hidden by the skin and bones as well as to diagnose and treat disease. Medical imaging also establishes a database of normal anatomy and physiology to make it possible to identify abnormalities. Although imaging of removed organs and tissues can be performed for medical reasons such procedures are usually considered part of pathology instead of medical imaging. In this discipline, it is part of biological imaging and incorporates radiology which uses the imaging technologies of X-ray radiography, magnetic resonance imaging, medical ultrasonography or ultrasound, endoscopy, tactile imaging, thermography, medical photography and nuclear medicine techniques.
