What does an MRI show that a CT Scan doesn't? (Click to see answer)

MRI is more sensitive to subtle changes in soft tissues, particulartly the brain and spinal cord. It is the primary imaging method for evaluation of joints, especially the knee, ankle, shoulder and wrist.

Can you see bones on Ultrasound? (Click to see answer)

No. You can only see soft tissue organs on ultrasound. Sound waves can not go through bones or gas. Gas in the stomach and intestinal track can cause shadowing and sometimes hide the organs you are trying to demonstrate.
