The issue brief, Consumer Guide to RadSite Modalities: Benefits and Risks of Common Medical Imaging Procedures, reviews common imaging modalities that are available today in language geared for the layperson.

The issue brief covers everything from basic x-ray or radiography examinations to advanced diagnostic imaging techniques such as MRI, CT, and nuclear medicine. The issue brief also discusses fluoroscopy, mammography, ultrasound, and DXA bone densitometry.
