Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is one form of imaging modality used by physicians to obtain clinically useful diagnostic information. Incorporating advanced technology, MRI produces images of anatomy without the use of radiation required with other imaging modalities, such as x-ray.
MRI combines the physical properties of strong magnetic fields with radio waves to produce computer-generated soft tissue images within any plane of the body. This popular imaging technique can be used as a primary diagnostic tool to provide a quick and accurate diagnosis for your physician.
MRI is a noninvasive procedure with no known side effects. The procedure is painless; in fact, you won't see or feel anything. A knocking sound will be heard from the machine, which is simply the imaging process in operation.
Services include MRI of the:
Soft Tissues of the Neck
Upper and Lower Extremities
