Why does superior imaging matter? Our imaging center, Magnetic Imaging Affiliates, is equipped with two top quality MRI scanners which enable our center to see more patients without sacrificing quality results. Not only are our radiologists sub-specialized, but they are reading scans that are exponentially clearer than scans produced from other MRI scanners.
It’s important to stay updated and have a firm grasp on MRIs which is why we created a blog to explain some of the frequently asked questions about these seemingly popular scans. After all, it’s never too soon to be prepared or simply informed about commonplace procedures.
Often times, patients ask us “What’s the difference between a CT scan and an MRI Scan?” These scans can seem pretty similar at first glance, but in reality, they are vastly different in the tasks that they perform and their functionality. We’re here to help clear the air and educate patients about the key differences between CT scans and MRI scans.
