We offer 3T and 1.5T MRI
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) combines magnetic technology with radio waves rather than X-Rays, to produce detailed computer-generated images of the body’s soft tissue. During an MRI exam, atoms in your body respond to magnetic fields created by an MRI scanner. These responses are recorded as images of internal organs, muscles, connective tissue, and the central nervous system by a computer.
The technique has proven very valuable for the diagnosis of a broad range of pathologic conditions in all parts of the body, including cancer, heart and vascular disease, stroke, and joint and musculoskeletal disorders. MRI requires specialized equipment and expertise and allows evaluation of some body structures that may not be as visible with other imaging methods. MRI exams are noninvasive, and in many cases, they can reduce the need for further tests or invasive procedures.
In contrast with other types of imaging, MRI technology can produce detailed images of the body’s “soft tissues”, such as the brain, spinal canal, heart, muscles, joints, and ligaments. Today MRI is a primary tool for diagnosing conditions in a number of medical categories, including neurology, cardiology, and orthopedics.
