CT (Computer Tomography), sometimes also called CAT (Computed Axial Tomography) scans are an x-ray procedure that combines many x-ray images with the aid of a computer to generate cross-sectional views and, if needed, three-dimensional images of the internal organs and structures of the body. In just seconds, this advanced technology can make a complete scan of your entire body - or produce detailed views of a targeted area.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a painless and safe diagnostic procedure that uses a powerful magnet and radio waves to produce detailed images of the body's organs and structures, without the use of X-rays or other radiation. The images can then be examined and reformatted on a computer monitor.
