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.

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.

The process by which radiographs are made. Also called skiagraphy.
radiographyRoentgenography, radiographic imaging Imaging The recording of an image of a region placed in a beam of radiation. See Angiography, Cholangiography, CT imaging, Fluoroscopy, GI series, IVP, Mammography, MRI, Venography, Xeroradiography.
Examination of any part of the body for diagnostic purposes by means of x-rays with the record of the findings usually impressed on a photographic film.
radiographyThe use of X-radiation to produce images that can help in diagnosis. Radiography includes the use of CT SCANNING, which is an X-ray technique,RADIONUCLIDE SCANNING and, by courtesy, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Compare RADIOLOGY.
Examination of any part of the body through the use of x rays. The process produces an image of shadows and contrasts on film.
