What is an MRI Exam?

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is an advanced technology that uses radio waves to produce images of the body’s internal structures. The patient lies still in a tube-like cylinder while the scan is conducted. This type of exam is good for imaging soft tissues in the body, like the brain, nerves, muscles, and organs.
