Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

For people who are claustrophobic, we offer the only high field short-bore magnet in the region. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a test that uses a magnetic field and pulse of radio wave energy to provide detailed images of the muscles, tendons, vessels, neural tissues, organs, and other structures inside the body without using radiation.

In many cases, MRIs can provide information that cannot be obtained from an X-ray, ultrasound, and / or CT. MRIs can detect changes in the normal structure and characteristics of organs or other tissues. These changes may indicate diseases caused by trauma, infection, inflammation, or tumors. In some cases, a contrast agent may be used during the MRI scan to enhance the pictures of certain structures. The contrast material may help evaluate blood flow, detect some types of tumors, and locate areas of inflammation.
