There are many different types of medical imaging equipment in the world, each with its advantages. Some of the most common types of medical imaging equipment include CT scans, MRI scans, X-rays machines, and ultrasounds. But do you know them? This article will introduce you to these different types of equipment.
X-rays machine is one of the most commonly used types of medical imaging equipment in hospitals. X-rays, a form of electromagnetic radiation, are used to image objects in the body. X-ray machines are very versatile. Not only can it help physicians diagnose diseases or identify injuries, such as tumors or bone fractures, but also it allows doctors to see the condition of patients’ organs in real-time during a procedure.
CT technology has been a mature technology and has been adopted by many hospitals. Similar to the X-ray machine, CT scanners allow doctors to view detailed images of organs and tissues in the body and are often used to diagnose diseases or injuries. CT scanners provide more detailed information than X-rays, but they are much more expensive, require more space, and are usually not the first choice for hospitals on a tight budget…In addition, X-ray is much safer than CT in terms of radiation exposure. One chest CT scan delivers the amount in 100 to 800 X-ray exams.
MRI scans are also popular among doctors. MRI scans use powerful magnets to create three-dimensional images of the brain, spine, and other parts of the body. MRI scans can help doctors diagnose diseases or injuries inside the brain and spine. MRI exams are safe for the human body, but the cost is even higher than a CT scan and the whole exam time is longer.
Ultrasound is also commonly used in hospitals and clinics. Ultrasound uses sound waves instead of radiation to create images of organs and tissues in the body. Ultrasounds can be used to diagnose pregnancy problems, heart disease, and other medical conditions.
