Digital Imaging Modalities

Medical imaging is a technique and process of generating visual depictions of interior body for clinical analysis and medical intervention, medical imaging institutes a sub-discipline of biomedical engineering, medical physics or medicine depending on the context: Research and development in the area of instrumentation, image procurement (e.g. Radiography), modeling and measurement are usually the preserve of biomedical engineering.

Digital Imaging methods  are part of biological imaging and includes radiology which uses the imaging technologies of X-ray radiography, magnetic resonance imaging, medical ultrasonography or ultrasound, endoscopy, elastography, tactile imaging, thermography, medical photography and nuclear medicine functional imaging procedures as positron emission tomography (PET) and Single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT).
