Which best describes X-rays?
- High resolution and high contrast images
- Plain film imaging
- X-rays pass through soft tissues and turn plate black, whilst hard tissues block the x-rays, leaving the film white
- X-rays pass through hard tissues and turn plate black, whilst soft tissues block the x-rays, leaving the film white
- An MRI produces High resolution, high contrast images by using two powerful magnets, radio waves, and a computer to create a detailed cross-sectional image of the target structure
- MRI scans only detect soft tissue issues
- X-rays are not sensitive to early changes e.g. tumours, infections and some fractures
- MRI scans cause radiation exposure
