What is MRI?
MRI is a method of obtaining images of internal body structures with the use of magnetic field and radio frequency. This exam does NOT use ionizing radiation (x-rays) to the body in the process. It is a common diagnostic tool with no risk to the patient while providing high quality evaluations of:
- Traumatic injuries
- Knee and Shoulder injuries and disorders
- Foot and Ankle injuries and disorders
- Elbow and Wrist/Hand injuries and disorders
- Hip and Spine trauma and pathology
- Spinal diseases
- Bone infections
