MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING (MRI Scan):
Magnetic Resonance Imaging or MRI is used to acquire visual data of the human body including internal organs for diagnosis. The images are acquired without using radiation. MRI is non-invasive and does not require bodily penetration. The whole process does not have side effects and is painless. You will not be subjected to anything physical or visual during the procedure. You’ll only hear a weak sound when the images are being processed.
There are various benefits associated with magnetic resonance imaging and new MRI uses are constantly being researched. MRI is applicable for every part of the body. It is also utilized to detect diseases of the eyes, sinuses, throat, salivary glands, and thyroid system. MRI is also effective for the musculoskeletal system when evaluating the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, and ankle. It can even detect abnormalities in the bone marrow with accuracy. MR angiography is a non-invasive procedure known for its accuracy in displaying arterial data of the head, neck, and body.
