With intact hepatic and cystic ducts, the contrast medium flows into the gallbladder where it is concentrated by the resorption of water through the gallbladder wall (see cholegraphic contrast agents). biliary contrast media (intravenous) (cm) Meglumine salts of iodipamide or iotroxic acids are used for intravenous cholangiography. They are transported by binding to plasma proteins competing with bilirubin for binding sites on albumin. Intravenous cholangiographic media have high water solubility, are not conjugated in the liver and are excreted unchanged in the bile, so the intrahepatic bile ducts and common bile duct are clearly imaged.
In computed tomography (CT) the mathematical procedure for the reconstruction of the axial image. This method suffers from serious image blurring so spatial filtration (convolution) of the raw data is necessary before back projection in order to reduce artefacts (see filtered back-projection). back scatter (xray) Radiation scattered or deflected from its path into the sensitive volume of a detector. e. from hard disk to floppy disk. It is a protection against data destruction. balanced gradients (mri) Rewinding the gradient fields so that the total time-amplitude area is zero.
The Internet has a backbone although not existing as a virtual routing path. Also the network that joins servers to other servers, multiple concentrators or both. Smaller networks may not carry a backbone. 22 Either fibreoptic cable or RG-6 is used for the backbone. Smaller networks using backbone technology, use RG-58 to connect between bridges, routers and concentrators. background radiation (phys) Cosmic and radiation from natural radioactive sources. (nmed) Radiation originating in sources (environmental or artificial) other than the activity of primary concern.
