CT Scan & MRI
Comparison and Indications
Referral Process
& Reports
Before requesting advanced imaging for your patients, it is important to match your differential diagnoses with the best modality, to help rule in or out these conditions. Often at times, X-ray alone will provide just as much information needed to rule out conditions. Although advanced imaging is superior, it may not add much more benefit in certain conditions. As always, feel free to discuss with our radiologists the applicability and suitability of advanced imaging for your specific patient.
