    • X-ray – images of X-ray particles recorded on a computer
    • MRI Scan (magnetic resonance imaging) – used to visualise internal structures of the body in detail
    • CT Scan (computerised tomography) – produces cross-sectional images
    • Discogram – used to determine if one or more discs are the cause of back pain
