Advantages of diagnostic imaging in diagnosis Injuries and other causes of disease have become easy to be located and identified by various diagnostic imaging. The machines are so important to doctors in diagnosis of various conditions. Such techniques as X-rays, MRIs and CT scans are very useful in various diagnosis. The medical professionals can now gain access to the patient’s bones and tissues and find problems. The imaging is done using the machines and then the doctor will analyze the images and make diagnosis. The pictures obtained after the imaging are used by the doctors to conclude on various conditions and treatments. The most used technique in today’s diagnosis is x-ray method. For the technique to work, the patient’s body part to be imaged is placed between the machine and the photographic film. Once this is done, electronic waves will go through the bones or tissues and are then imaged. The radiation dose should be highly regulated to avoid various dangers to the patient. It should be kept at low and other various considerations to be taken. X-rays work in a way that a white color is displayed in denser body parts and a gray or dark color is shown in less dense parts. The reason for this is that denser regions do not allow radiations to pass through while less dense regions do. X-rays can be performed at any angle depending on what the doctor suggests. If the patient has one foot for example that has problems, both the feet can be imaged, and comparison was made. The main advantage here is the imaging takes a very short time. CT scans are the best in cases where detailed images of a patient’s body parts are needed. When this technique is combined with x-rays, it will help to show the shape as well as the size and position of the particular body part including the organs and tissues. MRI scans also gives detailed, cross- sectional images of the patient’s body. When MRI is used in imaging, the patient will not be exposed to radiations. If there are metal clips or objects in the body of the patient, MRI will allow the doctor to locate them. The patient’s bones and tissues can be photographed and various solutions provided. Even though it cost more to buy the machines, they are the best in diagnosis. Doctors and physicians will find it complicated to identify internal problems without these machines. Various patients who have had injuries, objects, r tumors can now benefit from them since they will just be images and the problems solved. There is no pain associated with the techniques, and the medical professionals do not put any much effort. Expert doctors are well- versed with the techniques and they can use them perfectly.
