You are being interviewed for a job as a medical assistant.  As part of the interview process, the office manager tells you there will be a short test to assess your familiarity with using roots, prefixes, and suffixes to understand medical terms.  
You are a bit nervous about taking a test, but you did well taking a medical terminology course in school, so you feel ready.
You are taken to a quiet room and given the following 6 medical terms.  You are to identify if they have a root, suffix, or prefix; write the meaning of each of those; and define the medical term.  The medical terms are the following:
• tachycardia
• phlebitis
• hematoma (Hint: state the literal meaning of this word you will get by correctly analyzing the root, prefix or suffix, and then see if you can give an example of how a person could get this condition.)
• hepatomegaly
• arteriosclerosis
• cystoscopy (Once you have analyzed this term, find out and briefly state how it is done.)
Put the answers in a separate table on this document. Using proper APA format, please cite the sources for your responses.
