An ultrasound scan is a painless medical test using high-frequency sound waves to produce pictures inside the body. Often used to view a fetus during prenatal care, ultrasound technology also helps physicians diagnose pain, swelling, infection and blockages to blood flow. It is one of the most widely used diagnostic tools available to health care professionals today.
Computed tomography refers to the special x-ray equipment that takes images from different angles in the body, processing the information with a computer to reveal cross-sections of tissue and organs. It is a painless, non-invasive procedure that helps physicians diagnose and treat a variety of medical conditions, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, infection, trauma and injuries to the muscles and skeleton. It is especially useful in spotting injuries to the spine.
Magnetic resonance imaging uses radiofrequency waves and a strong magnetic field to provide images of the body. It produces detailed computerized pictures of organs, tissue and bone, giving physicians a precise tool for diagnosing tumors, coronary artery disease, abnormalities of internal organs and other medical conditions.
