Stuart Freake introduces the second imaging technique examined in the programme, venography (an x-ray technique). Annette Wright, a radiology assistant, prepares a patient for venography. Dr. Glyn Lloyd (radiologist) perform the venography. John Wright discusses the results of the venogram with Stuart Freake. They examine the venogam while they talk. Freake introduces an x-ray technique which images tumours directly, the EMIscan. Grace Keltz (radiographer, Atkinson Morley's Hospital performs an EMIscan on a patient. Stuart Freake provides some commentary. Freake and John Wright discuss the results of the EMIscan. Wright explains what information can be obtained from such a scan.
