Science has developed many ways to examine the internal body organs and their details, and a whole department of medical science has been dedicated to such examination called “Radiology.” Major methods used in Radiology include X-rays, Ultrasound, CT scan and MRI. Of all the above mentioned methods, safest and most modern one is MRI. It does not emit radiations; rather it works with a magnetic field system.
