What Are the Types of Medical Scans?

There are many types of medical scans that are used to identify and diagnose diseases, injuries, and abnormalities, by producing high-quality images of the organs and tissues. Medical scans such as MRAs, MRIs, weight-bearing MRIs, Neuroquant brain imaging, Arthrograms joint imaging, and more, can be used to diagnose all types of problems from the head to feet. Ultrasounds can monitor a baby’s development in the womb or can create images used for diagnosing a variety of diseases and conditions. 

What Can Medical Scans Detect?

Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA) evaluates the body’s blood vessels and can be used to diagnose stenosis, occlusions, aneurysms, and more. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) evaluates soft tissue and can be used to diagnose muscle tears, herniated discs, spinal stenosis, nerve damage, tumors, multiple sclerosis, and more. Weight-Bearing MRI reveals herniation and bulges around the spinal canal. NeuroQuant evaluates brain structures and can detect Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, traumatic brain injury, and more. Arthrograms evaluate the soft tissue and can diagnose injuries from joint pain or swelling.
