MRI

How does it work?

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scans are done using magnetism, radio waves, and a computer. The MRI unit is a large magnetic tube that a patient can slide into. When a magnetic field is created the protons on hydrogen atoms line up. At this point radio waves can be used to make the protons spin. The spinning motion creates varying signals that are interpreted by a computer and turned into an image.

What is it used for?

An MRI scan is a very accurate way to view the structure of organs, joints, tissue, bones, and much more.

Who does it?

In joint cooperation with Inland Imaging we are able to offer MRI services on-site using a mobile GE high frequency/high field, 1.5 tesla MRI.
