Can MRI Scans Examine the Whole Body?

Can MRI Scans Examine the Whole Body?

MRI scans are used to examine almost any part of the body. They are used to examine specific portions of the body that the health issues could be coming from. MRI scans are used to examine the brain, spinal cord, organs, heart, soft tissues, nerves, breasts, bones, and more, to diagnose conditions, plan treatments, and track recovery. MRI scans are capable of capturing full-body images and identifying physical abnormalities in their early stages. 

What is the Difference Between an MRI Scan and CT Scan?

MRI scans and CT scans produce their images in different ways. CT scans use x-rays to create images of the bones, organs, blood vessels, and soft tissues inside your body and MRI scans use magnetic fields and radio waves to do so. MRI scans produce more detailed images than CT scans. They are more effective at capturing images that doctors can use to find abnormalities and diagnose conditions within the body. CT scans are recommended for patients who can’t have MRI scans due to implants, pacemakers, or a variety of other conditions that could interfere with magnetic resonance imaging.
