sionnach commented on the word zeugmatography
"A technique that combines nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy with methods of focusing and scanning radio waves to produce cross-sectional images of the human body that indicate proton density and relaxation times, and distinguish normal tissue from tumors. Also known as nuclear magnetic resonance tomography."
My knowledge of Greek is insufficient to figure out why this word makes etymological sense. I have a vague recollection that zeugma is related to the Greek word for "yoke".
