Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses a large magnet, radio frequency transmissions through the body, and sophisticated computers to produce a series of magnetically generated images. These images can be used to diagnose many conditions or monitor the progress of treatment for diseases. Because MRI can see through bone and clearly define soft tissue, it can be used to make a diagnosis in some areas that X-rays cannot.
Each of the hospitals in the Arnot Health system offers MRI in its' radiology department. Your primary care physician will direct you to the correct provider.
