[medical] imaging methods/procedures/modalities


Explanation:
AltaVista (English) 760 pages found; word count: medical imaging methods: 158 medical imaging procedures: 229 medical imaging modalities: 707

AltaVista (English) 16,138 pages found; word count: imaging procedures: 5391 imaging methods: 8667 imaging modalities: 10296

_Methods_ is the most general (and imprecise) term;
_Procedures_ places some emphasis of the sequence of steps required and places balanced emphasis on the patient/anatomy/physiology and on the equipment/technic/tools.
_Modality_ places emphasis of the technology and image recording method, i.e. x-ray vs. CT vs. ultrasound vs. MRI vs. PET etc.
