Abstract: This is a branch of medicine that uses radiation to provide information about a person's anatomy and the functioning of specific organs. In most cases, the information is used by physicians to make a quick, accurate diagnosis of the patient's illness. The thyroid, bones, heart, liver and many other organs can be easily imaged, and disorders in their function revealed. In some cases radiation can be used to treat diseased organs or tumours.
