Healing with Continuous Shortwave Diathermy

11 January, 2012 | MedWOW, Radio Frequency Interference (RFI), Ultrasound Scanners

A type of technology that has shown real worth in the clinical setting is shortwave diathermy, as it can aid greatly in controlling pain and increasing the blood flow to damaged muscle areas. Shortwave diathermy acts with deep heat, as opposed to sound waves. In conjunction with other non medication-based therapies, shortwave diathermy can help a large number of patients with varying degrees of injury, as well as different types of injury.

The Basics of Digital Radiology (DR)

27 June, 2011 | Digital Radiology

What is Digital Radiology (DR)? Digital radiology (DR) is a form of x-ray imaging, where digital x-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. Advantages of digital radiology (DR) include time efficiency, as a result of being able to do without the standard chemical processing, as well as the ability to digitally transfer and [...]

Medical Imaging Workstation

26 December, 2010 | imaging equipment

The term “medical imaging workstation” describes a computer system that allows a user to search, retrieve, display and manipulate images that have been created from various imaging modalities, such as: digital x-ray computed radiography, direct digital radiography, computed tomography (CT) scanner, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner, ultrasound or any of the other digital imaging modalities [...]

Digital Radiography

10 November, 2010 | Digital Radiography, imaging equipment

Radiography is an imaging technique that produces high-quality anatomic images by using x-rays. General radiography is currently a major part of hospital imaging departments and includes abdomen, chest and extremity examinations. The use of digital radiography has rapidly increased in recent years. Computed radiography provided a cost-effective transition mode from the traditional film (from the [...]
