Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.
no, they do not
they can visualize certain organs better
why was it done?
They do look at the same things but CT is better than US at certain organs and vice versa.
for the spleen, ultrasound is better
both will see it but CT is better
No, not always. Not if they find the problem
If the ultrasound is normal and you are still having symptoms then you need a CT
