MRIs, CT scans (CAT scans), and ultrasounds are a few common types of medical imaging procedures used to create detailed images of the inside of your body. This allows medical professionals to see, evaluate, and measure your body in order to detect disease and injury at their most curable stage.
Medical imaging procedures are non-invasive and painless. Generally, you will need to hold very still while the imaging machine takes pictures. You may be instructed to hold your breath for brief periods to avoid blurring of the images. The length of the procedure varies depending on the number of pictures needed, but they generally last between 30 minutes and one hour.
