Diploma In Radiography
- Diagnostic Radiography – to look through tissue to examine bones, cavities and foreign objects; includes cardiovascular imaging and interventional radiography .
- Sonography – uses high frequency ultrasound and is increasingly used due to its economy, safety, and versatility in obstetrics, including metal monitoring throughout nancy, necology, abdominal, pediatrics, cardiac, vascular and musculo-skeletal; Note: in most settings this is conducted by a specially trained Sonographer.
- Fluoroscopy – live motion X-ray (constant radiation) usually used to image the digestive system; monitor the administration of a contrast agent to highlight vessels and organs or to help position devices within the body (such as pacemakers, guidewires, stents etc.)
- CT (computed tomography) – which provides cross-sectional views (slices) of the body; can also reconstruct additional images from those taken to provide more information in either 2 or 3D.
- MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) – builds a 2-D or 3-D map of different tissue types within the body.
- Nuclear medicine – this uses radioactive tracers which can be administered to examine how the body and organs function, for example the kidneys or heart. Certain radioisotopes can also be administered to treat certain cancers such as thyroid cancer.
- Radiotherapy (Radiation Therapy)- uses radiation to shrink, and sometimes eradicate, cancerous cells/growths in and on the body.
- Mammography - uses x-ray to image the breast tissues.
