Multi slice Computed Tomography (MSCT)
A computed tomography (CT) scan is an imaging method that uses x-rays and sophisticated computers to view detailed images of the internal organs and structures of the body.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
The MRI system utilizes magnetic field and radio waves to examine the body’s internal organs. It is the technique of choice for imaging of the brain, spine (Central Nervous System) and musculoskeletal region. MRI is a safe non-invasive imaging method that does not involve x-ray radiation.
