Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

We have a beautiful MRI Suite that allows you to have more privacy if you should arrive early and need to wait a few minutes prior to your examination. You also have the option of listening to your favorite radio station, various types of music or bringing a CD to enjoy your own musical tastes. 

MRI is an imaging modality in which no ionizing radiation is produced. MRI images are obtained by placing the patient in a powerful magnetic field. That strong magnetic field and its interaction with radio waves generates images of the body. Images are processed by a computer and can be displayed in any body plane (Axial – like slices of bread, Sagittal, and Transverse – sometimes referred to as Coronal). Since no ionizing radiation is involved additional images can be obtained without harming the patient. 

MRI provides valuable diagnostic information of the brain, spine, thorax, musculoskeletal system, abdomen, pelvis, and extremities. It can also evaluate organs, tumors, stroke, infections and joint injuries.
