• ORGANS
  • Radiologic technologists operate x-ray and digital imaging machines, digital mammography equipment, computed tomography (CT scan) machines and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to provide physicians with images of the skeletal system, organs, tissues and other vessels of the body-important diagnostic tests that help doctors detect and treat illness and injury. (liu.edu)
  • vessels
  • The method has been successfully employed to reveal functional properties of a number of neural systems, e.g. sensory systems related to touch, pain, and muscle sense as well as sympathetic activity controlling the constriction state of blood vessels. (wikipedia.org)
  • damage
  • The two Swedish scientists who developed the microneuropgraphy technique (Hagbarth and Vallbo) handled the medical-ethical concern by performing a large series of experiments on their own nerves during a period of about 2 years while carefully checking for nerve damage. (wikipedia.org)
  • To save a patient suffering from respiratory arrest, the goal is to restore adequate ventilation and prevent further damage. (wikipedia.org)
  • medical
  • Medical Imaging at LIU Post has been a provider of education in diagnostic imaging since 1973 and is one of only a few programs in the country to offer the entry-level baccalaureate degree in Radiologic Technology. (liu.edu)
  • Medicine
  • However, respiratory medicine is an underdeveloped subspecialty in veterinary medicine, and there are relatively few sophisticated tests that are available to the clinician that actually diagnose specific pulmonary disorders. (vin.com)
  • presence
  • Newcastle company OJ Bio has successfully completed the prototype development of a portable wireless point-of-care diagnostic system that accurately and quickly identifies the presence of a range of viruses and bacteria in patient fluid samples. (mtbeurope.info)
  • In each of these techniques, the antibodies for the protein of interest are added and the presence of the specific protein is indicated by a color change. (wikipedia.org)
  • small
  • Basically fiber diameter is closely related to function, e.g. cutaneous pain system is dependent on small fibers whereas discriminative touch is dependent on large fibers. (wikipedia.org)
  • USES
  • A team led by Lancaster University has developed a technique that uses sound waves and computer software to assess the state of osteoarthritis in the knee. (mtbeurope.info)
  • Codes
  • Commonwealth of Massachusetts Executive Office of Health and Human Services Office of Medicaid 600 Washington Street Boston, MA 02111 www.mass.gov/masshealth MassHealth Transmittal Letter IDTF-6 July 2008 TO: Independent Diagnostic Testing Facility Providers Participating in MassHealth FROM: Tom Dehner, Medicaid Director RE: Independent Diagnostic Testing Facility Manual (2008 HCPCS) This letter transmits revisions to the service codes Subchapter 6 of in the Independent Diagnostic Testing Facility Manual.

  • study
  • She says it would be worthwhile to reproduce the study to analyze the possible short-term impacts of other pesticides and spraying techniques. (ucdavis.edu)
  • To study nerve impulses of an identified neural system, a fine tungsten needle electrode is inserted into the nerve and connected to a high gain recording amplifier. (wikipedia.org)
  • perform
  • Accurate history taking is probably the single most important diagnostic test the clinician can perform in veterinary pulmonology. (vin.com)
  • interest
  • The exact position of the electrode tip within the nerve is then adjusted in minute steps until the electrode discriminates impulses of the neural system of interest. (wikipedia.org)
  • effective
  • Young children have less prior exposure and have not developed the antibodies and the elderly have less effective immune systems. (wikipedia.org)
  • service
  • An IDTF provider may request prior authorization (PA) for any medically necessary service reimbursable under the federal Medicaid Act in accordance with 130 CMR 450.144, 42 U.S.C.1396d(a), and 42 U.S.C. 1396d(r)(5) for a MassHealth Standard or CommonHealth member younger than 21 years of age, even if it is not designated as covered or payable in the Independent Diagnostic Testing Facility Manual.
