Women’s Perception of Transvaginal Sonography: A Study at Image Diagnostics, Portharcourt

ABSTRACTTransvaginal sonography is a later addition to the diagnostic techniques available for the evaluation of the female pelvis and can overcome many of the limitations of traditional transabdominal scanning. Transvaginal sonography involves the placement of the probe within the vagina. This is uncomfortable for most women especially in this part of the world where ethical issues are now a challenge. This may reduce the practicability of transvaginal sonography. There is also reluctance in...

LOCAL CONSTRUCTION OF BATTERY POWERED DUAL FACE RADIOGRAPHIC VIEWING BOX WITH ROTATABLE NECK AND ADJUSTABLE STAND

INTRODUCTIONRadiographic viewing box is an illuminator use in viewing radiographs. Proper viewing conditions are very important when interpreting a radiograph. The viewing condition can enhance or degrade the subtle detail of the radiograph14. Before beginning the evaluation of radiograph, the viewing equipment and area should be considered. The area should be clean and free of distracting materials, magnifying aids, and film makers should be close at hand. Its function being to improves subj...

IMMUNE – REGULATORY AND THERAPEUTIC USES OF INFRARED PHYSICS

ABSTRACTThe aim of the experiment was to estimate the effect of repeated simultaneous exposures to infrared laser radiation and μT variable magnetic field used in magneto stimulation on pain perception in rats, as well as the involvement of endogenous opioid system in the mechanism of this effect. In experimental group clean-shaven scull of male Wistar rats placed individually in a specially designed plastic chamber were simultaneously exposed to infrared laser radiation (wave...

PERSONNEL RADIATION MONITORING IN SOUTH EASTERN NIGERIA

INTRODUCTIONIonizing radiation has been employed in the diagnosis of various diseases and treatment since its discovery in 1895 by Wilhelm Conrad Rontgen1. There are many types of ionizing radiation available for either treatment or diagnosis worldwide. Despite wide radiation applications in medicine, it can be hazardous if not properly handled. After interaction of ionizing radiation with biological tissues through various mechanisms, the ions produced by such interactions can affect normal ...

The study is  aimed to assess the level of awareness/ knowledge possessed by patients in relation to the radiological services they should received, assess patients’ perceptions towards the booking and appointment system in the department, assess and know whether the attitude of staff (both at the reception and in the diagnostic room) in the department affects the level ...

AN ASSESSMENT OF PATIENTS’ CO-OPERATION TOWARDS PRESENCE OF STUDENTS DURING RADIOLOGICAL EXAMINATIONS.

ABSTRACTA key element of education for radiography students is patients’ willingness to co-operate when a student is involved in their radiological procedures. Active participation of the student in patient care has been shown to be important for professional development of learners. The objective of this study is to determine the views of patients and associated factors influencing these views when students are incorporated into their radiological examinations. This study was conducted in ...
