MRI means ‘Magnetic Resonance Imaging’. It’s an imaging technique using a strong magnetic field to produce high-quality pictures of soft tissue inside your body, for example muscles and ligaments, brain tissue, etc.
MRI technology uses a magnetic field and radio waves to produce detailed pictures of the human body. As the radio waves pass through the body, images are created on a computer screen for radiologists to analyze. These precise images allow radiologists to view soft tissue (muscles, fat, internal organs, blood vessels and tendons) and bones without the use of X-rays or surgery.
The Siemens Sampra MRI scanner is continually upgraded to keep up with advances in technology. This scanner is considered the industry standard and is valuable for imaging all parts of the body-
