What is MRI?
MRI or Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a non-invasive diagnostic procedure that does not involve radiation. It is used to diagnose conditions like pathologies, injuries, organ abnormalities, vascular
abnormalities, systemic defects and more. It is a full-body scan that creates and uses a strong magnetic field. Once a patient goes under an MRI scanner, the protons in their body align to the magnetic field. They then proceed to fall out of alignment when short radio waves are sent to areas of the body. The nature of these protons and the energy they emit is what gives the technician an idea of the tissue. An MRI scan gives a better contrast image compared to other imaging techniques.
