Medical imaging constitutes a branch of learning within the medical field involving the utilization of technology for taking images of the inside of a human body. Such images are then used in diagnostics, as tools for teaching, and for standard healthcare applications in a range of conditions. Diagnostic imaging is a term frequently used for medical imaging, since this technology enables doctors in making a diagnosis for correcting the condition, and medical imaging uses a wide variety of technologies for achieving this.
The primary objective for medical imaging lies in providing a picture of a human body’s interior in as noninvasive a way as achievable. Such images can be utilized for identifying abnormal conditions within a human body, such as broken bones, leaking blood vessels and tumors, to name a few. X-rays constitute one of the most extensively used and prevalent medical imaging technology that uses radiation for obtaining a static image of a body’s specific area. Other than x-rays and associated computed tomography (CT) technology, ultrasound is used for probing the inside of a body by bouncing sound waves from the body cavity for making a picture, and utilizing magnetic resonance imaging for agitating the cells to obtain a picture of the body. Medical imaging also offers the capability of producing dynamic images, such as brain activity scans or movement of the heart that static images do not offer. Techniques could also be more invasive in requiring a camera to be inserted into a body for getting a video image.
New report "Medical Imaging Devices - A Global Market Overview" by Industry Experts states that a few imaging studies are used for the simple capture of an image, while still others require introducing a contrast material within a body, which has to be swallowed or injected. This contrast material offer high-visibility pictures, and a doctor can easily follow its progression in a body. For instance, barium many be swallowed for a digestive tract x-ray for observing ulcers and perforations, and injecting radioactive contrasts helps in determining the signs of thyroid cancer.

The medical imaging industry has been evolving continuously, with a primary focus on developing less invasive or noninvasive machines and technologies for reducing the use of radioactive materials and other harmful substances to the minimum. The latest in medical imaging technology can be found in research hospitals and urban medical centers that have large budgets for procuring expensive new equipment, whereas rural facilities generally have to make do with older and more obsolete equipment that may not be as efficacious in diagnosis.
