An MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) produces 2-D images of the inside of your body using strong magnetic field and radio waves. The scan can show muscles, joints, bone marrow, blood vessels and nerves as well as other structures that are commonly used to examine your brain, spine and your abdomen.
An x-ray can show up abnormalities within your bones such as broken bones or shadows on the lungs as well as certain body tissues such as your breast tissue. Due to low amounts of radiation the risk to your health while having an x-ray is very small.
