Patient Evaluation

Other Imaging Procedures

QuestionAnswer
Other Imaging Procedures Computerized Tomography/ Defined - an x-ray through a specific plane of the body part to be examined. - Images appear as narrow slices of the organ or body part.
Other Imaging Procedures Computerized Tomography/Usage - useful for detecting the presence of a * mediastinal mass * parenchymal mass * pulmonary nodules and lesions used when not visible on a chest x-ray
Other Imaging Procedures Computerized Tomography/To Diagnosis used to diagnosis bronchiectasis
Other Imaging Procedures Computerized Tomography/Test - a spiral CT scan with contrast dye may be used for the diagnosis of * pulmonary embolus
Other Imaging Procedures Computerized Tomography/Precaution - oxygen and mechanical ventilation can be provided if no metal pieces are placed inside the machine. - All tubing should be secured so the airway/inspiratory lines will not be dislocated when the table is moved.
Other Imaging Procedures Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)/Usage - is used to obtain two-dimensional views of an organ without the use to radiation.
Other Imaging Procedures Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)/determines - determines * thoracic aneurysms * congenital abnormalities ( of the aorta and thoracic vessels (hilar area). * position of tumor and structures surrounding
Other Imaging Procedures Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)/Contra - patients that are claustrophobic = patient cooperation - patients that are obese = can't fit inside
Other Imaging Procedures Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)/Fludic - (non electric, gas powered) - these ventilators are used to not disrupt magnetic fields. - secured all tubing if table is moved.
Other Imaging Procedures Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)/Manual Resuscitation - should have detachable non-rebreathing valves made of non-ferrous (non-metallic) materials.
Other Imaging Procedures Pulmonary Ventilation/ Perfusion Scan/Ventilation - radioisotope (xenon gas) is inhaled and the location of the gas is recorded - gas produce a = photographic pattern of distribution throughout the lungs. - any obstruction to airflow will allow little gas to enter that area.
Other Imaging Procedures Pulmonary Ventilation/ Perfusion Scan/Perfusion - albumin, tagged with radioactive iodine is injected.(peripheral vein) when it passes into pulmonary circulation, lodges in capillaries
Other Imaging Procedures Pulmonary Ventilation/ Perfusion Scan/Perfusion/device - a scanning device is passed over the chest and produces a pattern of radiation. - indicates the distribution and volume of perfusion.
Other Imaging Procedures Pulmonary Ventilation/ Perfusion Scan/Perfusion/Results if the results indicate normal ventilation scan but abnormal perfusion = pulmonary emboli
Other Imaging Procedures Barium Swallow/Defined - a barium swallow or an esophagram is performed to assist in the diagnosis of abnormalities in the hypopharynx esophagus or stomach
Other Imaging Procedures Barium Swallow/Procedure - a quantity of barium, (radiopaque) is ingested by the patient and traced through thr hypopharynx and esophagus by fluoroscope
Other Imaging Procedures Barium Swallow/ Clinical - the barium is then traced through the esophagus into stomach x- ray is then taken
Other Imaging Procedures Barium Swallow/ Indications * suspected esophageal malignancy * dysphagia * congenital defect in hypopharynx * gastric reflux * esophageal varices
Other Imaging Procedures Positron Emission Tomography(PET)/Defined - PET scan is a simple non invasive procedure used to help physicians to detect diagnosis disease earlier than an MRI, CT scan. Also used to monitor a patient's response to treatment.
Other Imaging Procedures Positron Emission Tomography(PET)/Determines - the presence of cancer brain disorders and heart disease
Other Imaging Procedures Positron Emission Tomography(PET)/Procedure - patient is injected with a radioactive substance. which is given time to distribute throughout the body.
Other Imaging Procedures Positron Emission Tomography(PET)/Procedure - patient lies on a table that moves through a ring like scanner - scanning can take anywhere from 15-20 minutes.
Other Imaging Procedures Bronchography/ - injection of radio- opaque contrast medium into the tracheobronchial tree.
Other Imaging Procedures Bronchography/Clinical - by outlining the airways it will allow study of: * obstructing lesions * bronchiectasis (main indication)
Other Imaging Procedures Bronchography/Location - identifying the location of involved areas will better allow better administration of postural drainage with patients in Bronchiectasis
Other Imaging Procedures Bronchography/Hazards - allergic reaction - impairment of ventilation
