What is the difference between x-ray and MRI? And is there any defect while receiving the radiation from both x-ray and MRI towards our body?

An X-ray is a standard imaging test used for decades. It can help the doctor view the inside of your body without having to make an opening. An X-ray can help them diagnose, monitor, and treat many medical conditions.

MRI uses powerful magnets and radio waves. The output of this information store directly at a computer to make detailed pictures inside your body. Doctor use this test to diagnose to see how well a patient responded to treatment.

Unlike X-rays and computed tomography scans, MRIs do not use the damaging ionizing radiation of X-rays.

Ultrasonic devices used to detect objects and measure distances. Ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to produce pictures. At the medical field, it used as diagnose pain, swelling and infection in the body's internal organs.

So, it means that every device has its own specialty and functions right? then which device use the highest radiation ray?
