Computed tomography (also called a CT or
CAT scan) is a diagnostic imaging procedure
that uses a combination opf x-rays and
computer technology to produce cross-
sectional images (often called slices), both
horizontal and vertically, through the body.
A CT scan shows detailed images of any part
of the body. including the bones, muscles, fat,
and organs. CT scans are
much more detailed than x-rays.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a diagnostic
imaging procedure that uses magnetic fields to look
inside the pet without using radiographs or surgery. A
computer uses the magnetic signal to create a picture
of the patient's internal body tissues.
Nuclear medicine is a non-invasive imaging specialty where
radioactive isotopes (or trackers) are administered in order to
evaluate the bones, kidneys, thyroid, or liver for disease.
