What is difference between a CT scan and an MRI scan?

CT scans and MRI scans have similar uses but differentiate in internal imaging. CT scans, or CAT scans, are computerized axial tomography, or x-rays of the body. CT scans can be used to find tumors, internal bleeding, bone fractures, and/or cancer development and cancer treatment response. CT scans are less expensive and more common than MRI’s, but MRI’s provide better images. MRI is an acronym for magnetic resonance imaging. MRI scans require the person to lie down in an MRI scanner, so that the machine can use radio waves and magnets to bounce off fat cells and water molecules in the body to capture the images and send them to a computer. MRI’s produce enhanced internal imaging and are therefore able to diagnose problems with your joints, bones, and organs. MRI scans can capture imaging of the ankles, wrists, joints, breasts, heart, brain, and blood vessels.
