Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a technique used to produce images of tissues inside the body through the use of a large magnet, devices for transmitting and receiving radio waves and a computer.
MRI is an important diagnostic tool because it enables physicians to identify abnormal tissue without surgery. It also does not expose the patient to radiation, unlike tests that use x-rays.
MRI exams are performed in the Imaging Department. To scheudle an exam, call 406-723-2950.
