What is MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)?
MRI images are formed when signals, emitted by body tissue, are processed by software and turned into clinical images. These signals are generated using a safe magnetic field in combination with radio waves, producing detailed images without the use of radiation required by other imaging technologies.
As a result of the higher signal strength, pictures of the inner body are clearer and show more detail than conventional X-rays, allowing doctors to diagnose medical conditions earlier and more accurately.
Evaluating Injury & Disease
This procedure is used to examine all parts of the body and is useful in the evaluation of conditions such as:
- Brain disorders
- Traumatic injuries
- Eye abnormalities
- Spine diseases
- Tumor detection
- Liver and other abdominal diseases
- Knee and shoulder injuries
- Musculoskeletal disorders
- Facial/neck abnormalities
- Cardiac malformations
- Blood flow and vessel disorders
Quick & Accurate Diagnosis
MRI’s can be used as a primary diagnostic tool to provide a quick and accurate diagnosis for your physician.
No Known Side/After-Effects
This non-invasive procedure has no known side or after-effects. The procedure is painless and you will not feel any sensations during the procedure. In fact, many patients find the procedure so relaxing that they fall asleep during the exam. However, you should inform the technologist of any implants inside your body as some of these may pose a safety risk if exposed to the magnetic fields.
