Medical imaging

Medical imaging refers to the application of imaging techniques to living things.

Medical imaging may be "clinical", seeking to diagnose and examine disease in specific human patients (see pathology). Alternatively, it may be research-motivated, attempting to understand processes in humans or animal models[?].

Medical imaging techniques include positron emission tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, computed axial tomography, EEG and MEG.
