Radiography, Biology

Radiography:

Radiograph or X-ray remains the most well-known and primary diagnostic tool of all the imaging modalities. It works based on the difference in tissue density within the animal and provides 2 dimensional black and white image of variable intensity depending on radio-density of the examined structure or body part. The common pathological conditions which are diagnosed through radiograph are fractures, dislocation, arthritis, tumor, pregnancy, obstruction, osteoarthritis, osteo-chondrosis (OCD), bone tumors, hip dysphasia and a host of the other skeletal diseases. Radiographs can also be used to look at the soft tissue in the body, such as the heart, lungs and abdominal organs. In addition to the routine radiograph studies, contrast procedures are performed starting from upper gastrointestinal tract, arthrogram to myelogram, etc.
