Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is one of the most versatile and powerful imaging tools available to doctors for early detection of diseases and abnormalities. Using the same kind of radio waves that transmit FM music, MRI creates detailed images without using X-rays.
The MRI machine generates the radio waves using a powerful magnet. These signals produce digital images that can be stored on a computer, and also viewed at other locations such as clinics or operating rooms. Our advanced, High-field Open MRI technology is more spacious than traditional MRIs and is ideal for claustrophobic patients.
An MRI may be performed on virtually any area of the body. It can look for tumors or aneurysms in the brain, problems in organs, arteries and veins, breaks in bones, or other problems in ligaments and tendons, as well as the discs and nerves of the spine. It can reveal details that aren’t seen with other imaging methods, and it may be used with a contrast dye to provide an enhanced view of certain structures.
