Imaging Applications

 Medical imaging seeks to reveal internal structures hidden by the skin and bones, also on diagnose and treat disease. Medical imaging also establishes a database of normal anatomy and physiology to form it possible to spot abnormalities. Although imaging of removed organs and tissues are often performed for medical reasons, such procedures are usually considered a part of pathology rather than medical imaging. Measurement and recording techniques that aren't primarily designed to supply images, like electroencephalography (EEG), magnetoencephalography (MEG), electrocardiography (ECG), et al. , represent other technologies that produce data vulnerable to representation as a parameter graph vs. time. During a limited comparison, these technologies are often considered sorts of medical imaging in another discipline. Medical imaging equipment are manufactured using technology from the semiconductor industry, including CMOS microcircuit chips, power semiconductor devices, sensors like image sensors (particularly CMOS sensors) and biosensors, and processors like microcontrollers, microprocessors, digital signal processors, media processors and system-on-chip devices. As of 2015, annual shipments of medical imaging chips amount to 46 million units and $1.1 billion.
