What is the difference between an MRI and CT scan?
CT scans utilize X-rays to produce images of the inside of the body while MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) uses powerful magnetic fields and radio frequency pulses to produce detailed pictures of organs and other internal body structures. CT scans use low-dose radiation (X-rays), and MRIs do not.
Are MRIs and CT scans safe?
CT scans and MRI scans are both very safe procedures. During a CT scan, a person receives a very small dose of radiation, but doctors usually do not consider this harmful.
Are Within Health MRIs done with or without contrast?
Our MRIs are done without contrast. Non-contrast MRIs can provide adequate images of blood vessel activity, detecting aneurysms and blocked blood vessels.
Does Within Health take insurance?
At this time Within Health offers transparent self-pay / out-of-pocket rates, and is not covered by insurance.
