Show Teeth Imaging

The easiest way to say any on those are:
"I would also like to preform some imaging tests on your ...." - ou can leave it at that or you can add what the test is MRI/CT...
"I would like to take some pictures of your ...."
"I would like to see what is going on inside of your ..... so I will order what is called a CT/MRI/USG/XRAY."

These all actually work for bronchoschopy and any other sort of scopy as well

Hope this helps!! But i think you get the basic gist. You don;t have to use that verbatim but more of less that's the idea.

Check out First Aid, it has a decent sample response to this question. My answer would be something like this: "Ultrasound is a diagnostic imaging technique which uses a probe to produce detailed images of the inside of your body such as the Liver and other organs on a monitor; it's used to reveal abnormalities of organs whether they be inflammations, tumors, cirrhotic changes, etc. and helps us in reaching a final diagnosis."
