Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Diagnostic Imaging

MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) is a way to take detailed images of organs and tissues (muscles and fat) throughout the body, without the use of X-rays. MRI uses a powerful magnet, radio waves and computers to produce images that will help your doctor determine if you have an injury or disease.
