Clinical imaging examinations and the diagnosis of their findings play an important role in patient-centered interdisciplinary care. Clinical imaging tests, such as X-ray, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and nuclear medicine scans, are performed both in the initial diagnosis to identify the disease and at follow-up with the radiology team. Imaging technology is advancing day by day, both the hardware and software. CT and MRI are useful for confirming the size and location of lesions, providing what is known as morphologic images. CT can perform whole-body imaging very quickly, and the huge data are reconstructed in many ways with advanced computer systems. Three-dimensional CT, such as virtual colonography and bronchography, is useful for planning the approach before surgery or endoscopic study. MRI is useful for detecting acute cerebral infarction and evaluating brain perfusion or brain metabolites using MR spectroscopy. Fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET)/CT is a molecular imaging modality mainly used in oncology for the initial diagnosis, staging and detection of recurrence or metastasis after treatment as well as the evaluation of the treatment response. The focus of this paper was to elucidate the types and use of clinical imaging technologies, with a focus on CT, MRI and FDG-PET.
