X-Ray studies are beneficial for biomechanical issues as well as bone pathology and are best for revealing anatomical alignment. Since structure and function are usually intimately related and very relevant for chiropractic intervention, this form of radiology is often necessary.
MRI is the gold standard for neuro-musculo-skeletal pathology and provides profound clinical information that fosters pinpoint clinical applications. MRI scans are prescribed when the doctor feels that additional diagnostic investigation is warranted and presenting symptom profiles dictate.
CT Scans are prescribed in specific clinical circumstances in which pathologies are best revealed and/or clinical correlation is needed.
