Q. What's the difference between a CAT scan and an MRI?
The CAT scan, MRI and others are known as diagnostic-imaging tests. Let's go over the common ones.
X-ray;One of the oldest forms of medical imaging , an X-ray examination uses electromagnetic radiation to make pictures.
An X-ray machine passes a beam through your body and records an image digitally or on film. Body tissues produce different results. Tissues show up in shades of gray. Bones look white. Lungs that contain air appear dark.
Q. My doctor put his stethoscope on my neck and muttered to himself, "No brooey." I'm not the type to ask the doctor questions, but I'm still wondering what he meant by that. My spelling is probably wrong.
Your doctor was checking your carotid arteries on the sides of your neck to see if the blood flow to your brain was blocked. If one of the arteries was blocked, it would make a "swoosh" that the medical profession calls a bruit. Your phonetic spelling is excellent. Bruit is pronounced "broo-ee," like "phooey."
