radiography

 [ra″de-og´rah-fe]
the making of film records (radiographs) of internal structures of the body by exposure of film specially sensitized to x-rays or gamma rays. adj., adj radiograph´ic.
body section radiography tomography.
double-contrast radiography mucosal relief radiography.
electron radiography radiography consisting of electronic images that can be computer enhanced, electronically reversed, stored, retrieved, transmitted, and/or printed on photographic film.
mass radiography examination by x-rays of the general population or of large groups of the population.
mucosal relief radiography a technique for revealing any abnormality of the intestinal mucosa, involving injection and evacuation of a barium enema, followed by inflation of the intestine with air under light pressure. The light coating of barium on the inflated intestine in the radiograph reveals clearly even small abnormalities; double-contrast r.
neutron radiography that in which a narrow beam of neutrons from a nuclear reactor is passed through tissues; especially useful in visualizing bony tissue.
panoramic radiography pantomography.
serial radiography the making of several exposures of a particular area at arbitrary intervals.
spot-film radiography the making of localized instantaneous radiographic exposures; see also spot film.
