Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Your doctor has referred you for an MRI scan because of the precise and finely detailed images it can produce. These detailed images help in making a very accurate diagnosis, which means you can then be offered the best treatment.

Magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, uses powerful magnetic fields and harmless low energy radio-waves, similar to those used by FM radio stations, to look inside your body. It is an excellent way of obtaining highly detailed images without using x-rays. While technically very complex, the examination itself is very straightforward.
