This topic covers various diagnostic tests and procedures. The types of questions it should include are: 'What illness does a Myelogram detect?' 'What do the letters CT stand for?' 'What are the potential risks in having frequent X-rays?' 'What is an IVP?' and 'How long does it take to do an MRI?'
AP means anteroposterior (front to back) so you will see the front of the spine

yes, unless you are an infertile x-ray technoogist. Although it isnot recommended since being an x-ray technologist includes workinglong hours; which will not give you enough time to actually spendtime with children. In conclusion it all depeds on your fertilityand available time.

It stands for magnetic resonance imaging
A Grid Controlled X-ray Tube is a triode in which a third electrode is introduced between the Anode and Cathode. This electrode is normally neutral so the x-ray production can take place. However, one can decide when to cut the exposure by introducing negative charge on this. This will then stop ...

Microwaves do not have more energy than X rays. They have lessenergy. X rays pass through your food material and so do not heatthe same. Microwave has got less energy and they end up givingenergy to the food. That makes the food getting cooked.
angioplasty- angi/o means vessel and -plasty means surgical repair or angiorrhaphy. There are different types of repair and the medical terminology will depend upon the procedure carried out. In general - plasty is the term used for repair like profundoplasty. Stenosis of the artery can be...
-- Compare: They're both electromagnetic radiation. -- Contrast: X-rays have longer wavelength, lower frequency, and carry less energy, than gamma rays.

The MRI has been known to cause minor long-term shrinking of the male genitalia. The amount it will shrink it is hardly anything to be worried about, however; as little as 1/10 of an inch for a single MRI. In the worst cases, it's never been more than 1/2 of an inch from a single MRI.
It is a really good idea to cover reproductive organs duringX-rays, and we do. Lead blankets are always available in the X-raysuite, and the staff knows where to put them and why.
Electromagnetic Radiation; photons with exceptionally high energies.
For the majority of people who are in the military there are two options. Traditional Laser-Assisted in situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) or Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK).. The short answer is PRK. The long answer follows: LASIK is a procedure in which the cornea has a small flap cut into it using...

Using the X-ray photo Rosalind Franklin had taken, Watson and Crick were able to conclude the fact that DNA is a double helix. Franklin's photo gave them an actual look at the DNA's structure.

Known as the founder of microbiology, Pasteur discovered the role of bacteria in fermentation. His experiments with bacteria conclusively disproved the theory of spontaneous generation and led to the theory that infection is caused by germs. Extrapolating from this knowledge, Pasteur then developed...

Yes, there is an internship program in radiation therapy. You cancheck complete details on internet.
The answer is rather humorous actually. German physicist, WilhelmRoentgen, discovered a new form of radiation in 1895. He called itX-radiation because he didn't know what it was. The name stuck andit's that type of radiation that is used to make x-ray exams today.
X-Rays are part of the electromagnetic spectrum. Other waves on theelectromagnetic spectrum include light, radio waves, and gammarays.

Veins return blood to the heart. Four veins enter the heart. The superior vena cava (SVC) returns blood from the head, neck and arms and enters the right atrium of the heart. The inferior vena cava (IVC) returns blood from the rest of the body and also enters the right atrium of the heart. The...

Veins. You find bigger veins. There are very large veins in the body and so a doctor will insert a dialysis tube farther into the body where the veins are larger.
X-rays use what are called X-rays...that was a given but MRIs use magnetic pulses instead of the X-rays. The difference is that the X-rays don't pass through bone (so you see the bone) and the magnetic pulses penetrate the entire flesh but bounce off every cell. This shows what the inside of the...
Bone is denser than tissues.
X-rays have much shorter wavelength than radio waves. Otherwise, the two are identical in every possible way.

Becuase the only thing an MRI doese is check for things thatshouldn't be there in your brain. It's not a treatment option. Thataside, most people don't have things that need to be scanned for orthey just can't afford them, as sad as it is.
It records the electrical activity of the heart by measuring thepotential differences at three of the four standard points of bodyused for EMG. The human body conducts the minute potentialdifferences created across the heart, to far off points of thebody, from where the electrodes applied on limbs...
Barium carbonate will react with hydrochloric acid in the stomach forming soluble barium chloride which can be absorbed into the blood. BaCO 3 (aq) + 2HCl(l) ---> BaCl 2 (aq) + CO 2 (g) + H 2 O(l) Barium sulphate, however, does not react with hydrochloric acid in the stomach. Thus, it passes...
Alpha wave has nothing to do with X-rays, or with physics. They are a classification of "brain waves" as seen on EEGs; in the 7-13 Hz region they are only seen when the eyes of the subject are closed. Alpha particles are in the domain of physics; not waves or rays, but the nuclei of helium atoms.
Yes, you can have an MRI while on your period. There is no harm in this at all.

It would be an Other Metal, Lead(Pb).
X-rays can't go through the atmosphere (luckily, cause you'd get cancer if they did). To observe X-rays origninating from space, you need to be outside the atmosphere.
