Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) allows physicians see inside your body to identify and diagnose a wide variety of possible medical conditions — all without exposure to X-rays. Instead, an MRI uses a powerful magnet, radio waves and special coils to detect electrical signals from your body. A computer then turns this information into detailed images our doctors can use to help make a diagnosis.
MRI provides much greater contrast between the different soft tissues of the body than computed tomography (CT) does, making it especially useful in neurological (brain), musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, and oncological (cancer) imaging.
