Computed tomography (CT) scan is an imaging technique that uses x-rays to form images of cross-sections of the body.
X-rays are a sort of electromagnetic wave, rather like visible radiation. An X-ray machine sends individual x-ray particles through the body. the pictures are recorded on a laptop or film.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses an immense magnet and radio waves to appear at organs and structures within our body. Health care professionals use MRI scans to diagnose a range of conditions, from torn ligaments to tumors. MRIs are terribly helpful for examining the brain and spinal cord. Single MRI images are referred to as slices. the images can be stored on a computer or written on film.
