What is new in the Medical Imaging Research
In a Review article-Evolving and experimental technologies in medical imaging by Wolbarst AB, Hendee WR in Radiology 2006 Jan;238(1):16-39.
Authors discuss how more newer techniques are being utilized in Medical Imaging and are in the process of research.
"Medical images are created by detecting radiation probes transmitted through or emitted or scattered by the body. The radiation, modulated through interactions with tissues, yields patterns that provide anatomic and/or physiologic information. X-rays, gamma rays, radiofrequency signals, and ultrasound waves are the standard probes, but others like visible and infrared light, microwaves, terahertz rays, and intrinsic and applied electric and magnetic fields are being explored. Some of the younger technologies, such as molecular imaging, may enhance existing imaging modalities; however, they also, in combination with nanotechnology, biotechnology, bioinformatics, and new forms of computational hardware and software, may well lead to novel approaches to clinical imaging."
