ProcedureSpecimen Collection Method Name31313091.0CHARACTER
X-RayX-RayA type of high-energy radiation. In low doses, x-rays are used to diagnose diseases by making pictures of the inside of the body. In high doses, x-rays are used to treat cancer.
Virtual ColonoscopyVirtual Endoscopy ColonoscopyThe use of 3D CT or MRI scans to construct a simulated visualization of patient specific organs similar or equivalent to those produced by standard endoscopic procedures. Virtual endoscopic visualization avoids the risks associated with real endoscopy. Additionally, there are many body regions not accessible to or compatible with real endoscopy that can be explored with virtual endoscopy. (from R. Robb presentation at Visible Human Project Conference): Endoscopic examination of the luminal surface of the colon.
Ultrasound, TransrectalTransrectal UltrasoundA procedure that uses sound waves to create a video image of the prostate gland. A small, lubricated probe placed into the rectum releases sound waves, which create echoes as they enter the prostate. Prostate tumors sometimes create echoes that are different from normal prostate tissue. The echoes that bounce back are sent to a computer that translates the pattern of echoes into a picture of the prostate.
UltrasoundUltrasoundHigh frequency sound, generally with a frequency greater than 20,000 Hz.
Radiofrequency AblationRadiofrequency AblationA therapeutic procedure to eradicate or reduce small tumors using radiowaves to generate heat. The procedure is performed by the insertion of a thin needle through the skin and into a tumor, which is guided by computed tomography (CT) or ultrasound. Electrical energy delivered through this needle (electrode) heats and destroys the tumor. This therapeutic option is widely utilized by patients that have inoperable cancers, or are unsuitable chemotherapy candidates.
Physical ExaminationPhysical ExaminationA physical examination is a systemic evaluation of the body and its functions using visual inspection, palpation, percussion, and auscultation, aimed to determine the presence or absence of physical signs of disease or abnormality for individual's health assessment.
PETPET scanA technique for measuring the gamma radiation produced by collisions of electrons and positrons (anti-electrons) within living tissue. In positron emission tomography (PET), a subject is given a dose of a positron-emitting radionuclide attached to a metabolically active substance (for example, 2-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG), which is similar to a naturally occurring sugar, glucose, with the addition of a radioactive fluorine atom). When living tissue containing the positron emitter is bombarded by electrons, gamma radiation produced by collisions of electrons and positrons is detected by a scanner, revealing in fine detail the tissue location of the metabolically-active substance administered.
MUGA ScanMUGA ScanMUGA Scan
MRI ScanMagnetic Resonance ImagingImaging that uses radiofrequency waves and a strong magnetic field rather than x-rays to provide amazingly clear and detailed pictures of internal organs and tissues.
