Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses high power magnets and radio-frequency waves instead of x-rays to capture images that give physicians a literal view inside the body. MRI produces soft tissue images and is used to distinguish normal healthy tissue from diseased or injured tissue. In some instances, an injection of contrast dye may be required. Our Team of technologists and nurses will ensure a comfortable and safe visit. You will be asked to fill out a form about your medical history to make sure it is safe for you to undergo MRI scanning.
