What is meant by medical imaging technology?

Science & Technology

Medical image capture software involves visualization of organs, tissues or body parts for clinical diagnosis, disease monitoring, and treatment. The imaging techniques are included in the fields of nuclear medicine, radiology, image-guided intervention, and optical imaging.

Optical imaging:

Optical imaging methods like OCT or Optical Coherence Tomography display real-time functional and structural details of several hollow structures at cellular level. Abnormalities can be identified with a high resolution of images. Optical tracers are particularly used for tumor cells. It is the latest technique that is still in the development stage.

Nuclear medicine:

SPECT and PET are popular nuclear imaging techniques. It displays remarkable information of the molecular function, metabolism, and physiology of the body through the application of radioactive tracers.


The radiology method offers physiological and anatomical information of the human body at temporal and high spatial resolution. The images can be improved by using contrast agents. The radiology is covered in methods like MRI, X-ray, CT, and ultrasound scan systems.

Medical imaging technology and its types

Medical imaging technology remains significant in the present health care system. It has a high demand for the workers with skills and knowledge to carry out diagnostic imaging methods. In simple terms, medical imaging involves visualizing the organs and parts of the body to technicians and medical doctors to monitor, diagnose and treat injury or disease.

There are several kinds of imaging under medical imaging technology:

  • Radiography
  • Ultrasound imaging
  • Fluoroscopy
  • MRI or magnetic resonance imaging
  • Molecular imaging and nuclear medicine
  • Mammography
  • CT or computed tomography
  • X-ray imaging

Medical imaging consists of a wide range of technologies and procedures and they progress as technology advances. One of the best examples is mammography provides digital 4D and 3D imaging instead of 2D that has been standard in the industry for several years. As the field is changing, the education requires to be dynamic to stay relevant to the profession with technological advancements.

Latest trends in medical imaging technology

There have been enormous changes in the medical imaging technology field. The frantic phase of change in the present healthcare has challenges equally. The challenges appear in different forms ranging from new innovations to novel use cases to legislation and new policies. Some of the latest trends seen in new modalities are big data, internet of things and mobile.

Mobile and Internet Of Things

Mobile technology plays an important part in healthcare management software solutions. There are several mobile healthcare applications but many of the medical imaging applications are not approved by the FDA or food and drug administration. The applications that are approved are used for reference purposes. The FDA offers 510(k) premarket notification as a symbol of approval for various applications in medical imaging stream. Some common applications include clinical collaboration, 3-D viewing and simple PACS (picture archiving and communication system). These features help in referral studies and radiology reports.

Another latest technology that can remain useful in future is interlinking of medical imaging applications. It means the devices can be connected from one or numerous vendors to allow fleet and asset management that includes finance dependent operational analysis. Certain integrations remain in such a way where the vendors of the device can remotely function preventive care on the device. The Internet of Things has the capacity to service to numerous vendors. It is for these reasons it can become a top development in the future.

Big Data and its Analytics Software

Big data analytics is the latest advancement in the medical imaging field. Its important involvement to care range along with EHR (electronic health record) data in context. The analytics tool is expected to develop ahead gathering operational metrics. The key performance indicators are developed to cater to the requirements of provider for operational efficiency, clinical efficiency and complete patient care and comfort. It is used for resource optimization from the beginning of the decade. The increased difficulties of device, improved number of software systems, mobile devices and modalities remains feasible for the clinicians to approach the technician. It could be easily improved and measured on the monthly basis.

Trending modalities:

DBT: The full form of DBT is digital breast tomosynthesis. It is also referred to as 3D mammography. It is the latest and exciting advancement in breast imaging because of its dramatic development in early cancer discovery and lesion visibility. In DBT, a collection of images are produced with the breast as an alternative to adding two predictions of images. It helps the radiologists to see each tissue layer separately that eliminate the count of errors and also a number of recalls. The DBT is combined with MRI and ultrasound which helps in improving diagnostic accuracy. The trend would continue in such a way removing radiation from breast mammography without negotiating the image and information quality.

Alliedbusiness is a leading service provider offering hospital management applications in Chennai. It has developed the advanced medical imaging software,which remains as a customizable and complete solution. It can meet any endoscopic requirements of the hospital.
