Magnetic Resonance Imaging

What is MRI?

MRI is a non-invasive procedure that does not use ionizing radiation like X-rays. MR imaging uses a powerful magnetic field, radiowaves and a computer to produce detailed pictures of soft tissues, bones and virtually all other internal body structures. MRI's are typically ordered when certain diagnoses may not be assessed adequately with other imaging methods such as an X-ray, ultrasound or CT scans. MR images are read and interpreted in a timely manner by on-site, board-certified radiologists at SOS to allow physicians to more quickly and accurately diagnose and treat medical conditions.
