MRI - Magnetic Resonance Imaging - CT - Computed Tomography - Xray - Ultrasound - Digital X-rays


Modern radiology uses a number of different technologies with which to visualise beyond the skin and see the true structure and workings of the human body.

Some of these techniques use radiation,  and some of these have higher radiation doses than others.  Other techniques just use sound waves that are thought to be entirely harmless.  MRI uses only magnetism and radio waves.
