Radiographic features (article structure)

Radiographic features is one of the main subheadings in most articles. 

Location

The "Radiographic features" subheading is located after "Pathology" and "Radiographic features".

Structure

The following subheadings are available as needed: 

Plain film
Fluoroscopy 
IVP/Barium
Ultrasound
CT
Angiography (DSA)
MRI
