For injuries, what is the best to diagnose: X-rays, CT scans or MRI’s?
If you have a severe injury or if you have something wrong and you’re not sure and it could be life threatening, you have to weigh the benefits against the side effects. The key is that you have to determine the cause of the problem.
The radiation in CAT scans is probably 100 times more than in X-rays. With X-rays though, the effect of radiation is cumulative so you definitely want to avoid it where possible, like at the dentist’s office.
They may say, “Oh, you’re getting as much radiation as if you’re out in the sun” – but since it is cumulative it can be a factor in us developing diseases down the road. Remember, dental x-rays have a 3 years cycle for diagnostic effectiveness.
MRIs are safer, but you’ve still got to be careful. Consult with somebody you trust and who understands this and is going to give you an objective evaluation based on what’s best for you and not what’s best for their pocket book.
