Improving Body Image in Middle Schoolers
The focus of this study is the development of a school-based multimedia product for the prevention of body dissatisfaction and unhealthy weight control behaviors in adolescents. The program is being designed for early adolescents, age 12-14, and will include information on maturation, healthy eating and exercise, skill building modules and media literacy awareness.

The production of an image obtained by cameras that detect the radioactive emissions of an injected radionuclide as it has distributed differentially throughout tissues in the body. The image obtained from a moving detector is called a scan, while the image obtained from a stationary camera device is called a scintiphotograph.
Tomography Scanners, X-ray Computed
X-ray image-detecting devices that make a focused image of body structures lying in a predetermined plane from which more complex images are computed.
Angiography, Digital Subtraction
A method of delineating blood vessels by subtracting a tissue background image from an image of tissue plus intravascular contrast material that attenuates the X-ray photons. The background image is determined from a digitized image taken a few moments before injection of the contrast material. The resulting angiogram is a high-contrast image of the vessel. This subtraction technique allows extraction of a high-intensity signal from the superimposed background information. The image is thus the result of the differential absorption of X-rays by different tissues.
