susceptibility

 [sŭ-sep″tĭ-bil´ĭ-te]
the state of being susceptible.

sus·cep·ti·bil·i·ty

(sŭ-sep'ti-bil'i-tē),
1. Likelihood of an individual to develop ill effects from an external agent, such as Mycobacterium tuberculosis, high altitude, or ambient temperature.
2. In magnetic resonance imaging, the loss of magnetization signal caused by rapid phase dispersion because of marked local inhomogeneity of the magnetic field, as with the multiple air-soft tissue interfaces in the lung.

susceptibility

The likelihood of suffering from an adverse effect or disorder when exposed to a noxious stimulus or pathogen. See Cancer susceptibility.

sus·cep·ti·bil·i·ty

(sŭ-sep'ti-bil'i-tē)
1. Likelihood of an individual to develop ill effects from an external agent, such as Mycobacterium tuberculosis, high altitude, or ambient temperature.
2. Likelihood that a given pathogenic microorganism will be inhibited or killed by a given microbial agent.
Synonym(s): sensitivity (4) .
3. magnetic resonance imaging The loss of magnetization signal caused by rapid phase dispersion because of marked local inhomogeneity of the magnetic field, as with the multiple air-soft tissue interfaces in the lung; susceptibility measurement can estimate calcium content in trabecular bone.

susceptibility

A more than normal tendency to contract an infection or other disease.
