What is an MRI Scan?
An MRI uses magnetism, radio waves, and a computer to produce images of body structures which provide accurate information regarding the structure of the joints, soft tissues, and bones of the body. The image and resolution produced by an MRI is quite detailed and can detect tiny changes in structures within the body, which makes it an extremely accurate method of disease detection.
What is a CT or CAT Scan?
A CT or CAT scan is an x-ray procedure which uses a computer to combine numerous x-ray images to generate cross-sectional views and three-dimensional images of the internal organs and structures of the body. CT scans are used to analyze the head, blood clots, skull fractures, tumors, infections, hearts, and even bone density. These scans assist doctors in procedures by helping physicians to accurately guide the placement of instruments or treatments.
