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.

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

.X-rays- wavelength ranging from 0.1 to 10 nanometers and frequencies range 3×1016 Hz to 3×1019 Hz and energies at a range of 100 eV to 200 keV.
