    Might as well get all of your exposure to all those rays done at one time…

    You’d think they would have upgraded to Y-Ray machines by now.

    I give up. What the heck as an MRI? And why must you use acronyms in the comix?

    MRI is Magnetic Resonance Imaging. Unlike X-rays, there is no ionizing radiation – it is the safest 3D scan you can get. But as with any technology, there are drawbacks:
    1) resolution is lower than a CAT scan – but then a CAT scan comes with 600 times the radiation of a chest xray.
    2) The scan uses very strong magnetic fields. Metal in your body can be a problem. There have been accidents where loose metal objects in the room were thrown around by the field and injured someone.

    mri stands for magnetic resonant imaging. It is a sharper image of an area like say the brain. an x-ray will not pick up lesions on the brain that are associated with Multiple sclerosis. A MRI can.

    :-) Two reasons. Acronyms are part of speech these days [darn it] and two, it gives all the helpful readers a chance to explain. It’s friendlier than using Google. :-) Up with people!
