Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
MRI scans use magnets and radio waves to create cross-sectional images of your organs, tissue and bones. These images can help your doctor detect a variety of health concerns. Sometimes a special contrast dye is used to highlight the areas of your body being examined.
MRI scans are commonly used to detect conditions such as:
- Brain aneurisms
- Heart conditions
- Spinal cord injuries
