**Trigonometry**is

**used**in orthopedics tofind the deviation of a vertebra in degrees and know if the nervesare damaged. It is also

**used**to mold prosthetic arms andlegs that measurements are tailored to allow operation close to theoriginal member.

Beside this, how is trigonometry used in medical imaging?

Radiologist use an array of **imaging**, ultrasound,nuclear **medicine** and magnetic resonance to diagnose or treatdiseases. They also use **trigonometry** to get the correctangles so that each beam accurately target the cancerous cells.**Diagnostic** radiology helps healthcare professionals seestructures inside your body.

- Architecture and Engineering. Much of architecture andengineering relies on triangular supports.
- Music Theory and Production. Trigonometry plays a major role inmusical theory and production.
- Electrical Engineers and Trigonometry.
- Manufacturing Industry.

Then, how is trigonometry used in real life?

It is **used** in oceanography in calculating theheight of tides in oceans. The sine and cosine functions arefundamental to the theory of periodic functions, those thatdescribe the sound and light waves. Calculus is made up of**Trigonometry** and Algebra. Also **trigonometry** has its**applications** in satellite systems.

A **Oceanographer** uses **trigonometry** tomeasure distance. For instance if the **oceanographer** wastracking a sea creature and they needed to know how far they werefrom the animal they would use **trigonometry** to find out thedistance from them and the animal. They may also use**trigonometry** to calculate the height of tides.
