MRI

MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. It is a safe and painless test that uses magnetism, radio waves and a computer to produce detailed images of your body's organs, tissues and structures.

 

There are no known risks from an MRI scan. It is non-invasive and does not expose you to any radiation. Therefore, the scan can be repeated without any known adverse effects.

 

MRI may be used to evaluate various parts of the body and determine the presence of certain diseases that may not be diagnosed correctly with other imaging methods such as x-ray, ultrasound or CT (Computed Tomography).

 

How do I prepare?
