Types of Radiography:

Positron Emission Tomography  (PET)

Uses high-energy physics and computer techniques to  study  lung function; useful for quantitative measurement of regional puImonary perhsion  and for studying ventilation-perfusion relationships.

Magnetic Resonance  Imaging

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is the use of magnetic fields rather than radiation to create images of body  structures. MRI  is used much  like CT scan. The MRI  is more definitive than CT because  it  creates more detailed images of anatomic structures.


Enables roentgenologist to view heart, lungs, and diaphragm in  the dynamic (moving) state.

Barium  Swallow
