Radiographic features (article structure)

Dr Jeremy Jones and A.Prof Frank Gaillard et al.

Radiographic features is one of the main subheadings in most articles

The "Radiographic features" subheading is located after "Pathology" and before "Treatment and Prognosis".

Before any modality specific features are discussed, general appearances should be included here. This helps in eliminating repetition from modality to modality as often these are just different ways of imaging the same macroscopic features.

The following subheadings are available as needed: 

Plain radiograph
Fluoroscopy 
Ultrasound
CT
Angiography (DSA)
MRI
Signal characteristics
Nuclear medicine
PET-CT
PET-MRI

Combinations of modalities are addressed under the first modality, which often reflects the main focus on this modality while using the second one for reference, e.g. PET-CT, US-CT.

The following articles are examples of an appropriate radiographic features section:
