imaging

 [im´ij-ing]
the production of diagnostic images, e.g., radiography, ultrasonography, or scintigraphy.
digital subtraction imaging a technique in radiography in which electronic subtraction allows the visualization of individual images; see also digital subtraction angiography.
electrostatic imaging a method of visualizing deep structures of the body, in which an electron beam is passed through the patient and the emerging beam strikes an electrostatically charged plate, dissipating the charge according to the strength of the beam. A film is then made from the plate.
gated cardiac blood pool imaging equilibrium radionuclide angiocardiography.
horizontal beam imaging a grid positioning technique in radiology in which the grid cassette is positioned with its lead lines perpendicular to the floor.
hot spot imaging (infarct avid imaging) infarct avid scintigraphy.
magnetic resonance imaging see magnetic resonance imaging.
myocardial perfusion imaging myocardial perfusion scintigraphy.

electrostatic imaging

[-stat′ik]
Etymology: Gk, elektron + stasis, standing still; L, imago, image
a radiographic technique in which the ionic charge liberated during the irradiation process is converted into a visible image. The image may be produced by an electronic read-out device or by liquid or powdered toner.

nuclear imaging
organ imaging
outlining the size and location of organs by the injection of nuclides into the animal and observing their location by the use of a rectilinear scanner or a scintillation camera. See also scintigraphy.
