Minification gain ratio of the square of the diameter of the input phosphor to the square of the diameter of the output phosphor
Brightness Gain minification gain x flux gain
Conversion factor ratio of the intensity of illumination at the output phosphor to the radiation intensity at the input phosphor
Interventional radiology a subspecialty of radiology in which minimally invasive procedures are performed using image guidance
angiography imaging the blood vessels for abnormalities using various contrast media
Balloon angioplasty/stent opening of narrow or blocked blood vessels using a balloon
Chemoembolism delivering cancer treatment directly to a tumour through its blood supply
