and a data cable. The four most popular "input/output devices" used commonly with computers are the printer, monitor, mouse, and keyboard. The "bus" is a built-in electronic signal pathway in the motherboard to permit efficient and uninterrupted data transfer. A motherboard can have several buses, including the system bus, the PCI express bus, the PCI bus, the AGP bus, and the (outdated) ISA bus. "Ports" are the location at which external devices are connected to a computer motherboard. All commonly used (...) peripheral devices, such as printers, scanners, and portable drives, need ports. A working knowledge of computers is necessary for the radiologist if the workflow is to realize its full potential and, besides, this knowledge will prepare the radiologist for the coming innovations in the 'ever increasing' digital future.

guidelines. III. DEFINITIONS A. Single Photon Scintillation Cameras provide static, dynamic or gated images of the distribution of radiopharmaceuticals within the body. Single photon emission computed tomographic (SPECT) images may be obtained by three dimensional reconstruction of a number of two dimensional planar images taken at different angles. B. Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography may be combined with Computed Tomography in a single system (SPECT/CT). C. Positron Cameras provide static (...) , dynamic or gated images of the distribution of positron-emitting radionuclides within the body by detecting pairs of photons produced in coincidence by the annihilation of a positron and an electron. Positron emission tomographic (PET) images are produced by reconstruction from the coincidence pair data. D. Positron Emission Tomography is generally combined with Computed Tomography in a single system (PET/CT). E. Nuclear Medicine Computer Systems collect, quantitate, analyze, and display the imaging
by patient records (paper-based or electronic) of care provided during previous visits. Patient management may also be referred to as “clinical management” or “clinical monitoring”. Patient monitoring, also called “patient tracking”, refers to the routine collection, compilation and analysis of data on patients over time and across service delivery points, using information taken from patient records and registers (either paper-based or entered directly into a computer).

The ISS should possess any relevant qualifications required by federal/provincial/territorial regulations and statutes, and should be certified according to a recognized standard such as that of the Society of Imaging Informatics in Medicine or the PACS Administrators Registry and Certification Association. Training and expertise should include computer and database basics, networking concepts (such as DICOM, HL7, RIS and HIS), security systems, medical imaging terminology, positioning
by a multidisciplinary team. Computer-aided design and modeling with a three-dimensional printer, custom-designed cranial distraction and constriction devices, and intraoperative navigation techniques were used. These techniques allowed for separation of the twins at an early age and harnessed the regenerative capacity of their young brains.
is committed towards reducing the rates of non-communicable diseases, including those leading to cardiovascular disease, and these Guidelines form an important reference point to all stakeholders. The advent of newer diagnostic and therapeutic strategies has also provided the opportunity to improve prevention of cardiovascular disease, including in women. Techniques such as multislice computed tomography of the coronary arteries and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging provide the clinician greater options
averaged over time, since transmission is not continuous, but pulsed. Wi-Fi computer networks: Routers serve as base stations for wireless-enabled computers and peripherals (printers, scanners, etc.). Routers seldom exceed 100 mW in power and transmit only 10% of the time or less. Peak power density at 30 cm from a Wi-Fi router is 0.05% of the ICNIRP exposure guideline. Smart meters: These wireless devices collect data on utilities remotely. They have a maximal power of up to 1 W but emit for short (...) of radiation frequencies (Figure 1). Ionizing radiation is comparatively high in energy and can change atoms into “ions” (charged particles) by removing electrons. "Non-ionizing" radiation, including RF, is comparatively lower in energy but can cause molecules to vibrate. RF radiation is emitted from a variety of common wireless communication devices, including cell phones, cordless (DECT) phones, Wi-Fi computer networks, smart meters, and baby monitors.

forehead and nose, respectively. Polygon meshes acquired by the optical scanner were compared with meshes generated from high-resolution computed tomography images. Most optical scans contained minor artifacts. Using an algorithm that calculated the distances between the 2 meshes, we found that most of the optical scanner measurements agreed with those from the computed tomography scanner within approximately 1 mm for the geometric phantom and approximately 2 mm for the head phantom. We used (...) this optical scanner along with 3-dimensional printer technology to create custom lead shields for 10 patients receiving orthovoltage treatments of nonmelanoma skin cancers of the face. Patient, tumor, and treatment data were documented.Lead shields created using this approach were accurate, fitting the contours of each patient's face. This process added to patient convenience and addressed potential claustrophobia and medical inability to lie supine.The scanner was found to be clinically acceptable
