In brief: More info

Each imaging modality can be optimized to help learn more about diseases and help answer questions your for your doctor and you.
For example, ultrasound is good at looking at the gallbladder; ct can show bleeding in the brain; MRI can show an acute stroke or find masses in the liver.

In brief: Images of the body

Ultrasound, ct, and MRI are three different types of imaging procedures which allow the radiologist see what's going on in your body.
Each modality has it's own strengths, weaknesses, and indications. The best use of each is guided by the radiologist. The radiologist interprets at the images and provides a report to your doctor.
