What is CT-scan?

Computed tomography (CT) is an imaging technique that combines a series of X-ray images taken at different angles and uses a computer to create images from these x-rays. It is widely available, fast, and provides a detailed view of the internal organs and structures. The amount of radiation involved in CT scans can be concerning and harmful. It is thought that radiation exposure during each scan is equivalent to between a few months and years of exposure to natural radiation from the environment. After many years, the chances of developing cancer through exposure are thought to be very small (less than 1 in 2000). Also, it is not advisable to use CT-scan for pregnant women.

Common uses for a CT scan is to detect:
•    Internal organ tumor 
•    Fractures
•    Internal bleeding
•    Blood vessel disease

What is MRI?

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an imaging technology that uses nonionizing radiofrequency (RF) radiation inside a strong magnetic field to detect protons' location and local chemical environment. It provides essential information on various internal organs inside the body. It can be used as a diagnostic technique to detect disease throughout the body and used when other test fails to provide a sufficient patient's diagnosis. The most significant risk of an MRI is that any magnetic implant (dental implants, cardiac implants, aneurysm chip) can come under the influence. This can cause an implant to be displaced or overheated.

MRI scans are usually to diagnose diseases associated with bones, organs, and joints, including those that affect the:
•    Brain injuries including tumors
•    Spinal conditions/injuries
•    Sport injuries
•    Musculoskeletal problems
•    Blood vessel abnormalities
