Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an advanced technology that produces images of the body’s internal organs, bones, tissues and other structures. MRI generates clearer, higher-contrast images than most other imaging technologies—allowing for a more accurate diagnosis.
Unlike an X-ray, MRI does not use ionizing radiation, so it can be used safely on infants and pregnant women. Instead of radiation, MRI uses two natural forces—magnetism and radio frequency waves—to produce clear, detailed images. It can generate hundreds of images with a single scan.
Another test we offer is magnetic resonance angiography (MRA), which is an MRI study looking at blood vessels. Some areas that may be imaged are the vessels in the head, neck, legs, pelvis and abdomen.
A board-certified, licensed radiologist will review your MRI or MRA images and share the results with your physician.
