Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology uses a powerful magnet, radio waves, and an advanced computer system to produce detailed pictures of the organs, bones, and tissues inside your body. Your doctor might refer you for an MRI if an X-ray or CT scan didn't provide enough information about your health condition. The non-invasive test can help your doctor diagnose a disease, learn more about an injury, or monitor how well you're doing with a treatment.

What Does an MRI Show?
MRIs are performed to diagnose disease or evaluate an injury in a specific area of the body. They can also show if treatment has improved your condition. Your doctor may refer you for an MRI to look more closely for:
- Joint injuries such as sprains and fractures, spinal cord injury, and arthritis
- Dementia, brain tumors, multiple sclerosis, and brain injuries -- for instance, damage from stroke
- Heart disease, blocked blood vessels, damage from a heart attack
- Cancers of the liver, breast, ovaries, prostate, liver, and other organs
Our facilities are ACR-accredited for Magnetic Resonance Imaging, which represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety.
