Medical imaging is the technique and process of creating visual representations of the interior of a body for clinical analysis and medical intervention. Medical imaging seeks to reveal internal structures hidden by the skin and bones, as well as to diagnose and treat disease.
As a discipline and in its widest sense, it is part of biological imaging and incorporates radiology which uses the imaging technologies of X-ray radiography, magnetic resonance imaging, medical ultrasonography or ultrasound, endoscopy, elastography, tactile imaging, thermography, medical photography and nuclear medicine functional imaging techniques as positron emission tomography.
A subset of this technique is Spinal Cord analysis, but it is a major project when considered individually and involves various modules. Prior to any medical treatment of an ailment the accurate diagnosis is the prerequisite for it. The better is the diagnosis the better is the treatment. Spinal Cord injuries are diagnosed with a great ease by implementing medical imaging.
