Each modality images differently. Sometimes it is necessary to image with different modalities for the best diagnosis. Your doctor will determine what type of exam is needed.
Medical professionals use ultrasound to examine organs and soft tissue structures. Ultrasound can often be used to detect disease or exclude pathology, assist with procedures such as biopsies, and diagnose disease within the vascular system.
A computerized tomography (CT) scan, commonly known as a CAT scan, combines a series of X-ray images taken from different angles around your body and uses computer processing to create cross-sectional images (slices) of the bones, blood vessels, and soft tissues inside your body. CT scan images provide more detailed information than plain X-rays do.
MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. It is a diagnostic procedure which allows physicians to see detailed images of the internal structures of your body without using radiation. It uses a large magnet, radio waves, and a computer to scan your body.
A lumbar MRI scan uses energy from strong magnets to create pictures of the lower part of the spine. An MRI of the lumbar spine shows the bones, disks, spinal cord, and spaces between the vertebral bones where the nerves pass through.
