Imaging Method: Computed tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography are imaging techniques that provide a highly accurate measure of human body composition at the tissue‐organ level. Computed tomography works through measuring the attenuation of X‐rays through body tissues, whereas magnetic resonance imaging uses a strong
magnetic field to align positively‐charged protons in the body’s tissues which are digitised to provide a greyscale image. Magnetic resonance imaging is emerging as a safe method of choice over computed tomography as it does not expose participants to radiation. Due to constraints in cost and availability, the techniques are generally only used for athletes as part of a research project or for clinical purposes.
