Exploring the Different Types of Medical Imaging Tests: Ultrasound, Mammography:


Ultrasound is a non-invasive, safe and painless imaging test that does not use any radiation. It is commonly used during pregnancy to monitor the growth and development of the foetus, as well as to diagnose and monitor conditions such as gallstones, liver disease, and heart problems.
One of the advantages of ultrasound is that it can be performed in real time, allowing healthcare providers to see the movement of the body's internal structures. This can be particularly useful during procedures such as biopsies or needle aspirations, as the healthcare provider can use the ultrasound images to guide the needle to the correct location.


Mammography is a specialised type of x-ray that is used to screen for and diagnose breast cancer. During a mammogram, the patient's breast is compressed between two plates, and x-rays are used to create images of the breast tissue. Mammograms can detect breast cancer at an early stage, when treatment is most effective.
Mammography is recommended for women over the age of 40, and women with a family history of breast cancer may be advised to start screening at an earlier age. Regular mammograms can help detect breast cancer before any symptoms are present, increasing the chances of successful treatment.


Medical imaging plays a vital role in diagnosing and monitoring a wide range of medical conditions. Different types of imaging tests have different advantages and disadvantages, and the choice of which test to use will depend on the specific medical condition being evaluated.
X-Rays, CT scans, MRIs, and ultrasound are used to evaluate a variety of different tissues and organs. Mammography is recommended for women over the age of 40 to screen for breast cancer, and fluoroscopy is used during procedures to help healthcare providers see the body's internal structures in real-time.
Regardless of the type of imaging test used, all medical imaging tests have one goal in common: to provide healthcare providers with the information they need to diagnose and treat medical conditions as effectively as possible
