What Is Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) 

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a medical imaging technique that creates detailed three-dimensional images of internal body structures through the interplay of magnetic fields, radio waves, and cutting-edge computer technology.

Due to its non-invasive and radiation-free nature, MRI is considered one of the safest imaging exams available.

MRI is renowned for its exceptional sensitivity when it comes to imaging soft tissues, making it an indispensable tool in diagnosing a wide range of conditions. MRI offers valuable insights pertaining to cancer, heart disease, stroke, and musculoskeletal disorders, contributing to your healthcare journey in a positive manner.
