Review with your Dr: Hi Please review the radiology results with your doctor. Generally speaking, we are able to see finer detail of internal organs on CT scans than on X-rays. We typically order CT scans to confirm, refute, or gather more information about questionable findings on X-rays. Below is a link with further information regarding imaging of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms. Hope this helps! http://bit.ly/2hnK5LH
