    1) Give examples of how contrast media are used to produce an image.

    Contrast imaging is extensively used in medical imaging to enhance the structures or fluids within the body. The different types of contrast media can be used which are classified based on the imaging modalities; and the most common agents are based on the X-ray attenuation and magnetic resonance signal enhancement. For example, iodine and barium are commonly used for enhancing the x-ray based imaging. The contrast media varies depending upon the osmolarity, viscosity and absolute iodine content of ...
