1 Physicians specializing in radiology are called radiologists. Professional technicians who produce the images are radiographers. Many subspecialties exist within radiology. Although most imaging studies are produced by ionizing radiation, nonionizing studies, such as diagnostic ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), are used extensively. Additionally, the ability to image areas of the body that had previously been inaccessible to nonsurgical evaluation has made interventional and biopsy procedures possible using diagnostic imaging for guidance.

1-5). Many technologies are available that can do this. Yet how we identify anatomy will remain the same regardless of the technology used to capture the image. This is because the shade of gray that represents anatomy is determined by the molecular interaction of x-rays with body tissues, not by the type of image receptor used. Receptors: Different Ways to ●Image Capture the X-Rays 10,11,18,23–25 The three major classifications of diagnostic radiographi imaging, based on the type of image receptor used to capture the x-ray image, are film/screen radiography, fluoroscop imaging, and computed or digital imaging.
