Keywords:  tomography, axial, mri, cat, resonance
Pictures of organs in the body. Examples include liver scans, bone scans, and computed tomography (CT) or computed axial tomography (CAT) scans.
Pictures of structures inside the body. Scans often used in diagnosing, staging, and monitoring people include liver scans, bone scans, and computed Tomography (CT) or computed axial tomography (CAT) scans and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans. In liver scanning and bone scanning, radioactive substances that are injected into the bloodstream collect in these organs. A scanner that detects the radiation is used to create pictures. In CT scanning, an x-ray machine linked to a computer is used to produce detailed pictures of organs inside the body. MRI scans use a large magnet connected to a computer to create pictures of areas inside the body.
Brain scans use computerized x-rays and magnetic fields to show the parts of the brain. The scans give doctors and scientists a picture of how the brain is working. Some of the different kinds of scans are: - CAT scan: Computerized Axial Tomography - EEG: Electroencephalograph - MRI: Magnetic Resonance Imaging - PET: Positron Emission Tomography

The Secretary’s Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills. The Former U.S. Secretary of Labor, Lynn Martin, chartered The Secretary's Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills (SCANS) in 1990 with the goal of encouraging a high-performance economy characterized by high-skill, high-wage employment. DOL sought to accomplish this by defining critical skills that everyone needs in order to succeed in the workforce and in life. Called the "SCANS skills," these competencies were then compiled into a report in 1991 called A SCANS Report for America 2000. The final report defined a high-performance workplace as one that reinforces the foundation and application of skills such as computation and literacy. Additionally, the report stated that high-performance workers need advanced soft skills, including the ability to work on teams, solve complex problems in systems, and understand and use technology.
