Pain on MRI and X-RAYs?
Your provider may order a MRI or X-ray for the problem that is bothering you. Now pain will not show up on either test but what might be causing the pain will. Especially if it is bone. Bone is picked up very well on imaging. X-rays do a very good job of showing up what bone looks likes but an MRI is a better type of imaging, much like your camera has better settings, you can zoom in and see images better.
MRIs are wonderful for “zooming” in or focusing on a particular area that is questionable on an X-ray. MRIs have other advantages than X-rays for seeing other parts of the body that the X-ray will not pick up or put into various shades of black and white.
X-rays are cheaper than MRIs and will both do a good job, but often an MRI will answer more questions or may not be needed to confirm a problem when an X-ray will do the job just fine.
Your provider will discuss your imaging with you. If you have any questions, please ask your provider to clarify. This will give them a chance to point out on the X-ray or MRI where the problem is or is not in your imaging result.
