What is an MRI?
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to generate pictures of organs and structures inside the body. In many cases MRI gives different information about structures in the body than can be seen with other imaging technologies. MRI may also show problems that cannot be seen with other imaging methods.
An MRI scan can be done for the:
- Abdomen and pelvis
- Bones and joints
An MRI may be the most effective tool to assess the severity and determining the most effective treatment of delicate injuries.
