Breast screening for lesions such as malignancies which is done with modified x-ray, using low energy machines.

Fluoroscopy

This is a dynamic study (imaging) which may employ the use of contrast media. Examples of such studies include Barium Studies (meal, enema, etc), HSG, and others.

C.T. (Computed Tomography)

The CT scan also utilizes modified x-ray cross-sectional machine. All parts of the body are subject to CT scan.
