Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a powerful diagnostic imaging equipment that visualizes internal structures of the body in detail. MRI is a very safe test because it doesn’t use ionizing radiation to collect the images. MRI provides good contrast between the different soft tissues of the body, which makes it especially useful in imaging the brain, muscles, the heart, and other internal organs. In our clinic we use an open MRI scanner where the patient instead of lying in a narrow tunnel, the imaging table has more space around the body so that the magnet does not completely surround the person being tested. The examination is thus more comfortable especially for claustrophobic or obese patients and the quality of the images is similar to that of a traditional MRI device.
Please remember to bring all previous MRI and imaging investigations with you to your appointment.
