Magnetic Resonance Imaging scans use magnetic fields and radio wave energy pulses to take pictures of internal organs and some structures inside the body. Most of the times, an MRI scan provides specific information about different organs inside the body, which are visible with a X-ray, an ultrasound or Computed Tomography (CT) Scan. Although MRI scans are also able to show certain problems that aren’t visible through other imaging methods.
For an MRI test, the area of the body being studied is placed inside the machine, which contains a strong magnet. MRI scans provide digital images, which can be saved on a computer or printed, for further studies. The scanned images can also be analyzed remotely in operating rooms or clinics. Sometimes, contrasting material is used during the MRI scan to give a clearer picture of organs and tissues.
