Medical imaging is the method, procedure and art of producing visual pictures of the inside of a body for clinical examination and medical interference. Medical imaging seeks to reveal internal structures concealed by the skin and bones, as well as to analyze and treat disease. Medical imaging also creates a database of normal anatomy and physiology to make it imaginable to identify irregularities. Although imaging of removed organs and tissues can be performed for medical details, such measures are usually measured part of pathology instead of medical imaging.
Review articles are the summary of current state of understanding on a particular research topic. They analyze or discuss research previously published by scientist and academicians rather than reporting novel research results.
Review article comes in the form of systematic reviews and literature reviews and are a form of secondary literature. Systematic reviews determine an objective list of criteria, and find all previously published original research papers that meet the criteria. They then compare the results presented in these papers. Literature reviews, by contrast, provide a summary of what the authors believe are the best and most relevant prior publications.
The concept of "review article" is separate from the concept of peer-reviewed literature. It is possible for a review to be peer-reviewed, and it is possible for a review to be non-peer-reviewed.
