How do I cite in my paper or project?

Paraphrase or summarize a thought by rewriting it in your own words. You will still need to cite it, but not as a quote.

Example: In a test of 21 “normal” volunteers, the University of Kentucky study found that neither, Echocardiography or magnetic resonance imaging expose the patient to ionizing radiation. 1 (p.1374)

You can also quote a resource. Depending on the length of the quote and the citation style you are using you may need to separate quoted text from the rest of your document.

Example: “Cardiac chambers and vascular structures were clearly defined with both echocardiography and gated magnetic resonance imaging during systole and diastole in all volunteers” 1(p.1372)

It is common to use a combination of these techniques in your projects.
