MRT

MRT is the abbreviation for Magnetic Resonance Tomography which is a high-resolution imaging procedure that doesn’t use X-rays. Instead, it makes use of a strong magnetic field and, unlike normal X-Rays, there are no known harmful effects associated with MRT so it has proven itself to be a harmless diagnostic procedure. Since its introduction in the 1980s of the last century, the MRTI has significantly expanded the possibilities of diagnostic imaging and has become indispensable in many areas of medicine. One big advantage of MRT, as opposed to X-rays which can only show bones, is that MRT makes it possible to see soft tissue clearly.
