Ultrasound and X-rays are relatively easy, fast ways to image a part of the body. Because it does not use radiation, ultrasound is good for diagnosing problems in children. Often, portable ultrasound machines and X-ray machines are available at the bedside.
Ultrasound, X-rays, and CT scans take less time than MRI. However, MRI is better at showing detail in internal organs and soft tissues, including the brain and heart. CT scans are excellent for injuries with bony structures, such as the spine. Keep in mind you may have a combination of imaging studies to fully diagnose your condition.
