Magnetic Resonance Imaging, MRI, is a diagnostic technique, which provides superior pictures of the body’s internal structures without the use of radiation. These images are produced using magnetic fields and radio waves.
A specific screening form must be completed and checked before entering the MRI suite.
Some MRI exams we perform include, but are not limited to: Brain, Carotids, Chest, Abdomen, Pelvis, and Extremity exams. MRA (Magnetic Resonance Angiography), MRV (Magnetic Resonance Venography) and run offs are also available.
MRI is used to identify brain tumors, strokes, nervous system disorders, and disease of pituitary gland, bone and joint damage, injury, infection, tumors and degenerative disorders. MRI can also be utilized to reveal tumors not seen by other imaging modalities, and functional disorders in organs such as lungs, liver, pancreas, kidney and spleen.
