Ultrasound is a diagnostic exam utilizing painless, high frequency sound waves to obtain pictures of the internal structures of your body. No radiation is necessary.
X-Ray uses standard radiation to view parts of the body. X-Ray allows the radiologist to analyze the bony and soft tissue anatomy. Fluoroscopy is an enhanced X-Ray procedure that provides a continuous or live image on a television-like monitor. It is useful in diagnosing problems of the digestive tract, kidneys and gallbladder.
CT is an X-Ray technique that uses a special scanner and computer to create cross sectional images of parts of your body (somewhat like slices of bread). CT’s can reveal anatomical details of internal organs that may not be seen in conventional X-Rays.
MRI uses a powerful magnet, radio waves and a sophisticated computer system to scan your body. This scan will provide your doctor with important information on certain types of body tissue (internal organs, joints, brain and spine) differently than an x-ray or a computed tomography (CT) scan.
