Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) tests provide clear images of the human body without the use of X-rays. Using a large magnet, radio waves and a computer, an MRI can evaluate various body parts such as the brain, neck, spine, abdomen and joints.
Many indications can be evaluated with an MRI exam including back pain, recent spine or joint injury, headaches, dizziness, stroke, metastatic disease and abdominal or pelvic pain.
The MRI exam is painless and generally safe. Patients will be asked to complete an MRI patient screening form to assure safety before entering the strong magnetic field. The form addresses implantable devices, patient condition, pain, claustrophobia and current medications. The MRI staff performs pre-screenings to ensure patient safety and to provide the best service possible.
