How Have Radiology and Radiology Systems Evolved?

By: Advanced Data Systems Corporation
July 24th, 2019

The contents of the body are shown by shadows on recording media. Although ultrasound is not a form of radiation, the category of radiology also includes the use of ultrasound or focused high-frequency sound which images internal organs using echoes that are traced precisely enough to form an interpretative image.
