 As technology continues to advance, physicians are recommending that their patients get advanced tests that can identify problems quickly. One of those is an MRI, or magnetic resonance imaging, a diagnostic procedure that uses a combination of a large magnet, radio frequencies, and a computer to produce detailed images of organs and structures within the body.



An MRI may be used instead of computed tomography (CT) [Link to CT Scan page] in situations where organs or soft tissue are being studied, because bones do not obscure the images of organs and soft tissues, as they do in a CT scan.

An MRI can be used to study:

  • Bones
  • Joints
  • Soft tissue
  • Heart
  • Spine
  • Brain
