The first X-Rays were invented in 1895 and used to investigate skeleton and lung organs. This was the birth of X-Rays and the beginning of what we now call Medical Imaging. It consists of X-Ray (Radiology), Cat Scan, Mammography and Dexa which use a form of radiation to expose the human body. Over the years technology has allowed the radiation dose to be significantly reduced and of little to no harm to the patient. Which makes this the best tool for physicians to help diagnose their patients. Ultrasound uses sound wave and MRI is a large magnet all designed to give you many options for diagnosing and treating your issues.
