40 CHAPTER 4 Video Images Photographs are often taken from video screens. Echocardiography, ultrasound images, computed tomography, scintigraphy, nuclear magnetic resonance imaging, and others are photographed from the cathode ray tube (CRT) screen. Their effectiveness depends upon the resolution of the screen, the ability to enlarge crucial areas, and the labeling options that the computer program offers. Below is an example of ultrasound imaging as it comes from the computer screen. UNIMPROVED This is an echocardiograph (EeG) showing sections of the inferior vena cava and the hepatic vein.

The light computer print-out was photocopied to darken the lines. Since the left-hand scales overlapped, they were cut apart and mounted with space between them. Scales were redrawn and numbers added by hand. Use only the parts of the tracing pertaining to the point to be made, keeping in mind the final shape and reduction on the figure. A photographer can assess how effectively the lines will reduce and can advise about format for the medium to be used. PHOTOGRAPHS 27 Often many tracings are shown together.

PHOTOGRAPHS 37 Gels Gel patterns show the array of nucleic acids and proteins separated by electrophoresis into bands of different components, different molecular weights, or restriction fragments. Electrophoresis separates serum proteins into identifiable components. After separation, nucleic acids and proteins may be stained and quantified. Gel electrophoresis is a powerful analytical tool and is widely used in genetic and peptide mapping. The photography and labeling of gels require special consideration.
