Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a medical imaging technique used in Diagnostic Imaging to investigate the anatomy and function of the body in both health and disease.

MRI scanners use strong magnetic fields and radiowaves to form images of the body.  The technique is widely used in hospitals for medical diagnosis, staging of disease and for follow-up without exposure to ionizing radiation.

Used for many exams, including: head, spine, heart, bone / joints, and abdomen.
