Motor imagery is the mental representation of movement without any body movement. According to recent studies motor imagery contains three strategies to mentally simulate the movements: internal visual, external visual and kinesthetic imagery. Motor imagery is associated with cortical reorganization and functional improvements and it does not only related with motor performance, it also influces cognitions. Movement Imagery Questionnaire-3 (MIQ-3) is the recent, modified version of the Movement Imagery Questionnaire-Revised, Second Edition and measures imagery ability in terms of ease of imagery.
The aim of this study is to translate MIQ-3 into Turkish and evaluate its test-retest reliability for Turkish-speaking population.

Investigate body image of patients with rheumatoid arthritis, correlating with self-esteem, function and quality of life.
The patient has been referred for an FDG PET/CT scan. FDG is a form of sugar that contains a small amount of radioactivity; it is used to see the size and possible spread of cancer in the ...
This study aims to compare a new electronic instrument called (here referred to as the 'Body App') with traditional paper and pencil rating scales for assessing how individuals with eating...
The purpose of this study is to test an innovative intervention geared towards issues of identity, body image and sexuality, and to examine the intervention for its impact on body image, q...
Evaluation of the tolerance and acceptability of the virtual representation of its body image.
This study investigated how exposure to non-body focused others (i.e., those who are not preoccupied with their body weight/shape or appearance) and exposure to body focused others uniquely affect you...
This study examined the developmental journeys of individuals who have overcome negative body image in early adolescence and developed positive body image on their way to emerging adulthood. Interview...
Investigations of positive body image among men and across various social identities are lacking, and could contribute to a more complete understanding of the construct, including how positive body im...
Recent literature argues that body image interventions need to become more embodied. This paper evaluates a brief yoga-based body image intervention which incorporates themes specifically tailored to ...
Positive body image is a multidimensional construct referring to love, respect, and acceptance of one's body, including aspects inconsistent with sociocultural ideals. The aim of the present study was...
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.
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.
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.
Method for determining the circulating blood volume by introducing a known quantity of foreign substance into the blood and determining its concentration some minutes later when thorough mixing has occurred. From these two values the blood volume can be calculated by dividing the quantity of injected material by its concentration in the blood at the time of uniform mixing. Generally expressed as cubic centimeters or liters per kilogram of body weight.
A visual image which is recalled in accurate detail. It is a sort of projection of an image on a mental screen.
