MRI

MRI is magnetic resonance imaging. Using a magnet that is linked to a computer, MRI is a procedure that produces a strong magnetic field along with radio waves to create detailed pictures of areas inside your body. MRI produces soft-tissue images and is used to distinguish normal, healthy soft-tissue from pathologic tissue.

Depending on what information your doctor needs, the MRI scan may require the use of a contrast agent given intravenously (IV) to assist the physicians ability to see certain structures in your body.
