Diagnostic Imaging

Diagnostic imaging refers to the technologies and processes a physician will use to create images in order to look inside of the human body so that specific diseases can be revealed and diagnosed. The technology used to conduct the diagnostic image will depend on the patient’s symptoms as well as what part of the body is to be examined. Examples of diagnostic imaging tests include x-rays, CT scans, nuclear medicine scans, MRI scans and ultrasounds.
