Neuro The central nervous system (CNS) is the part of the nervous system that coordinates the activity of all parts of the body. It contains the majority of the nervous system and consists of the brain and the spinal cord.
Chest The chest is the region of the body between the neck and the abdomen, along with its internal organs and other contents. Contents of the chest include the organs (heart, lungs), muscles, internal structures, arteries and veins, bones and external structures (nipples, mammary glands)
Genitourinary The genitourinary system includes organs involved in the formation and excretion of urine (kidneys, ureters, urinary bladder, two sphincter muscles, urethra) together with those involved in sexual reproduction. Also called urogenital system.
Vascular Vascular is an adjective for the word vessel . The blood vessels are part of the circulatory system and function to transport blood throughout the body. The most important types, arteries and veins, carry blood away from or towards the heart, respectively.
Computed Tomography Computed tomography (CT) scans are completed with the use of a 360-degree x-ray beam and computer production of images. These scans allow for cross-sectional views of body organs and tissues.
Ultrasound Ultrasonography is a diagnostic technique that involves directing high frequency sound waves at tissues in the body to generate images of anatomical structures. Ultrasonography is also called sonography, diagnostic sonography, and echocardiography when it is used to image the heart.
Interventional Interventional Radiology (abbreviated IR or sometimes IVR) is a subspecialty of radiology in which minimally invasive procedures are performed using image guidance. Some of these procedures are done for purely diagnostic purposes (e.g., angiogram), while others are done for treatment purposes (e.g., angioplasty).
Molecular Imaging Molecular Imaging enables the visualization of the cellular function and the follow-up of the molecular process in living organisms without perturbing them. The multiple and numerous potentialities of this field are applicable to the diagnosis of diseases such as cancer, and neurological and cardiovascular diseases.
