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 include magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), x-rays and CT scans and are all the best in diagnosis. The medical experts can now view the body of the patients and locate various problems and find solutions. The imaging is done using the machines and then the doctor will analyze the images and make diagnosis. The images are useful in making various diagnosis and decisions or treatments. The most prevalent technique in the medical profession is radiography or x-ray technique. The body part to be examined is position between the x-ay equipment and the film itself. This will allow the electronic waves to penetrate the bones or tissues and they will then be imaged. The doctors have to regulate the radiations that the patients are exposed to avoid toxicity. The dose should be low enough to prevent this dangers and enough to produce images. The working of this x-ray is in that it display the denser parts like bones and tumors in white colors while the less dense parts like soft tissues will be shown in dark or gray colors. This is because radiations are best absorbed by the denser parts of the body as compared to the less dense which will allow the radiations to pass through them. The x-rays technique allows imaging in any angle. The doctor can image both hands of patients even if one hand had problems and comparison done. X-ray images do not take long to be produce. CT scan technique is a high performance method and it gives detailed images. Combination of a CT scan technique and x-ray technique enables medical professionals to check the size, shape and position of the objects, tumors or any other thing. MRI scans also gives detailed, cross- sectional images of the patient’s body. MRI is a technique that does not require the patient to be exposed to various radiations. With MRI scans, the doctor can locate any metal clip or objects in the patient’s body. With the techniques, bones and various tissues can be imaged. Installations of these machines might seem costly to various medical professionals or hospitals but they give the best diagnosis. The patient’s internal body parts are hard to be viewed without such machines. It is possible for doctors to quickly locate tumors, objects, and injuries in a patient’s body. The techniques don’t involve any pain to the patients and not much labor required from the medical professionals. Various medical professions undergo extensive training on use of the techniques and they are exposed well before they begin using them.
