What are the advantages of a CT scan compared to an MRI?

A key advantage of CT is its ability to show detailed images of bones, blood vessels, and soft tissue in the same image. Bones in the image don’t obscure the underlying tissues. A CT can also reveal tumors and measure a tumor’s size and location. CT is considered the best method of diagnosing different kinds of cancers. It is also commonly used in diagnosing vascular diseases, detecting osteoporosis, and identifying traumatic injuries to internal organs.
Another advantage of CT: The procedure is faster and costs much less than an MRI.
