What is an MRI?
MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging - one of the most advanced methods of diagnostic examinations available. It does not use X-rays or radiation. Instead MRI uses a magnetic field and radio waves to produce high quality images of the inside of your body.
Powerful computers reassemble the MRI signal into a set of pictures that will be reviewed by a physician. MRI is a safe, painless examination that has no known side effects. You and your doctor will use your MRI scan results to plan your course of treatment.
