Brief Introduction of Program
Medical imaging developed rapidly to play a central role in medicine today by supporting the diagnosis and treatment of a disease. It encompasses technologies like ultrasonography, x-rays, mammography, computed tomography (CT scans), MRI, Dexa-Scan, and nuclear medicine. Diagnostic imaging services are essential in confirming, assessing, and documenting the course of many diseases and response to treatment. It is a multi-dimensional field that is not only confined to conventional imaging techniques but with the advancement in technology, there has been an ever-increasing emphasis on post-processing, and newer and more advanced ways of sharing and storing medical images.
