Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses a strong magnetic field and radio waves to image the body. MRI is commonly used to examine the brain, spine, joints, abdomen and pelvis. A special kind of MRI exam, called magnetic resonance angiography (MRA), examines blood vessels throughout the body.

MRI is an incredibly accurate diagnostic tool that quickly and non-invasively provides accurate diagnostic images for your physician. In some situations MRI can reduce the need for exploratory surgery or other diagnostic procedures that often have greater risks.
