Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses strong magnetic fields and radio waves to generate detailed images of organs int he body. MRIs are a proven and versatile technology that can provide early detection of many conditions. In most cases there is no special preparation needed to have an MRI. You can eat and drink your normal diet and take your regular prescription medicine.
A CT (computerized tomography), or CAT (computer assisted tomography), scan provides multiple cross-sectional X-rays of the body, which produce detailed images that can reveal tumors, internal organ injuries, bones fractures and other lesions.
One of the oldest forms of medical imaging, x-ray is a fast, easy, and safe way for your doctor to view and assess conditions ranging from broken bones to pneumonia to cancer.
Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to provide real-time visual images inside the body. No radiation is involved in ultrasound imaging.
