NIBIB's 60 Seconds of Science explains what is happening in the body when it undergoes an PET scan.
A PET scan uses radioactive tracers to create 3D images of the body. The radiation from the tracers
A very simple and basic overview of two methods of indirect sensing used in medical diagnosis work.
Nuclear medicine -- risks and danger of radioactivity, diagnosis and therapy of cancer.
What is pet scan - pet scan risks, pregnant, baby, scanner, PET, SPECT, scintigraphy.
In this two-year diploma program, students will learn the techniques of imaging, laboratory procedures and equipment operation to prepare students to work with patients and medical staff in a nuclear medicine department.
There are so many careers out there, that it's hard to know which one is right for you. These videos were made to help you explore different areas in the health care system. We asked working professionals to tell us the positives and challenges of their job, what type of person fits best in their career, and what makes it all worth it at the end of the day. For more information on this and other careers offered at Loma Linda University, please visit explore.llu.edu.
The promise of ultrasound has always been in its ability to visualize tissues dynamically without the use of radiation. Today's guest post by Michelle Brunet tells us about the road ahead for ultrasound:
Cardiovascular technicians, diagnostic medical sonographers, radiologic technologists and other healthcare professionals are increasingly incorporating ultrasound as an imaging tool for both diagnosis and treatment. Due to the fact that the equipment is relatively cost effective and it does not rely on radiation, it is becoming more and more important in a range of healthcare departments. O...
When you spend most of your waking hours each week at work, good relationships with colleagues go a long way in helping you improve your performance, and you’d likely feel less stressed. Often in radiology, much attention is paid to improving relations with referring physicians. What about your radiologic technologists?
How can radiologists improve communications and relationships with technologists, and why should you care?
Fortunately, the collaborative relationship between radiologists and technologists is better than it was years ago, though of course it depends on the facility, said...
This is the first of a two-part series on improving communications. Next week, we'll explore how radiologists can better connect with radiologic technologists.
Communication. It’s been a big topic of conversation in the radiology industry, both at national meetings and inside individual practices. There’s a distinct need to improve the way radiologists and referring physicians talk to each other. The sticking point, however, has been how to do it.
There’s no question, though, the specialty needs to implement effective strategies to make communication faster, easier, and more effective. W...
Those dreaded HIPAA rules have changed again. With enforcement getting stricter and fines rising, radiologists need to know how the rules will impact them, and what changes they need to make.
The final regulations, also known as the mega rule, modify HIPAA’s privacy, security, enforcement and breach notification rules. Issued by the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services in January, they go into effect March 26th.
“For most radiology providers, there’s nothing earth shattering, nothing fundamentally different, that we didn’t know was coming do...
