Radiology is an important medical field as long as it helps diagnose different diseases through medical imaging. Nowadays, various imaging procedures are used to detect different types of health issues: X-ray radiography, MRI scan, CT scan, PET, ultrasound, etc.
Ones of most used imaging techniques are currently CT scan and MRI examination. Both of them provide more detail information than simple X-ray. In some ways, these two procedures are similar to each other as they both show cross-sectional pictures of the body.
On the other hand, they work on different principle. While CT (computed tomography) is a type of specialized X-ray which uses multiple X-rays, taken at different angles, to produce the cross-sectional imaging, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a common type of non-invasive scan which uses magnetic fields and radio frequencies to detect diagnosis.
Consequently, the same parts of the body can be displayed in different ways. In general, a CT scan is best suited for viewing bone injuries, diagnosing lung and chest problems, and detecting cancers. On the other hand, an MRI examination is a more suitable option for examining soft tissues, ligament and tendon injuries, spinal cord injuries, brain tumours, etc.
