X-ray imaging works by passing an energy beam through a part of your body. Your bones or other body parts will block some of the X-ray beams from passing through. That makes their shapes appear on the detectors used to capture the beams. The detector turns the X-rays into a digital image for a radiologist to look at.

X-ray beams use radiation. Radiation is energy that’s released as invisible particles or waves. Being exposed to very large amounts of radiation can damage cells and tissues. It may also increase your risk of developing cancer.

But modern X-ray tests use a very small dose of radiation. People are naturally exposed to radiation from many sources, such as the sky, rocks, and soil.

Diagnostic Ultrasound

Diagnostic ultrasound is able to non-invasively image internal organs within the body. However, it is not good for imaging bones or any tissues that contain air, like the lungs.

Under some conditions, ultrasound can image bones (such as in a fetus or in small babies) or the lungs and lining around the lungs, when they are filled or partially filled with fluid.

One of the most common uses of ultrasound is during pregnancy, to monitor the growth and development of the fetus, but there are many other uses, including imaging the heart, blood vessels, eyes, thyroid, brain, breast, abdominal organs, skin, and muscles.

Ultrasound images are displayed in either 2D, 3D, or 4D (which is 3D in motion).
