Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses magnets rather than x-rays to scan your body, allowing physicians to look inside your body without pain, surgery or radiation to make an early and accurate diagnosis of various illnesses and injuries. MRI technology sends radio-waves into your body and measures the reflective response with a computer to create a series of detailed images of your internal organs and tissues. Another type of MRI exam called Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA) examines the blood vessels.
Professional Imaging features a 1.5 Tesla magnet which significantly reduces scan time while providing superior image quality. This technology, combined with our experienced staff and comfortable, peaceful environment reduces any of the anxiety that may be associated with this exam.
