Radiation Therapy Sonography: Sonography refers to the use of high frequencies of sound to generate images of internal body organs and structures. To generate these images, a sound with a very high frequency is produced by an instrument called a probe or a transducer, and the sound is directed towards the body part to be imaged.

Nuclear medicine uses radioactive substances in diagnosis and therapy. Nuclear breast imaging (also called scintimammography) is a supplemental breast exam that may be used in some patients to investigate a breast abnormality after diagnostic mammography has been performed. Nuclear breast imaging uses small amounts of radioactive materials, or radiopharmaceuticals, to do diagnostic scans of the breast. view alert archive

Obstetric ultrasound, also called fetal ultrasound or fetal sonography, is a routine, non-invasive test that does not use ionizing radiation, as is used in x-rays. Obstetric ultrasound, commonly known as baby ultrasound or pregnancy ultrasound, provides pictures of an embryo or fetus within a woman's uterus. view alert archive

Abstract Objective Head and neck cancers (HNC) are known for their repopulation ability driven by cancer stem cells (CSCs). While a small fraction of CSCs proliferates, there are quiescent CSCs that are long‐lived and reside outside the cell cycle. Recruitment of quiescent CSCs into the.
Abstract To date, five cancer treatment modalities have been defined. The three traditional modalities of cancer treatment are surgery, radiotherapy, and conventional chemotherapy, and the two modern modalities include molecularly targeted therapy (the fourth modality) and immunotherapy (the.
One of the treatments often recommended for the treatment of cancer is radiation therapy. Radiation therapy uses ionized radiation in order to target and control cell growth. The ionized radiation damages the DNA in cancer cells, causing cell death. In order to prevent damage to healthy tissue, radiation is beamed from several different angles in order to put the greatest amount of radiation into the tumor. As early as 6895, doctors were using x-rays in order to treat cancer.
Musculoskeletal radiology is a subspecialty concerned with the diagnostic radiology of diseases of the muscles and skeleton. In recent years, MRI musculoskeletal imaging for the assessment of bone disease has been joined by advances in ultrasonography, scintigraphy, and computed tomography. view alert archive
