Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a diagnostic tool that produces detailed images of the human body without the use of x-rays, instead merging the magnetic field, radio waves, and computers to produce highly detailed images of humans internal structures in a noninvasive way. Procedures using MRI are painless and involve no ionizing radiation.
PrimeImaging provides state-of-the-art MRI equipment including both high-field traditional magnets, as well as, open magnets. This allows us to provide the best quality imaging study while maximizing patient comfort.
- Noninvasive imaging technique
- Does not use radiation
- Versatile enough to help diagnose a broad range of conditions, including cancer, heart and vascular disease, and muscular/bone abnormalities
- Enables the discovery of abnormalities that might be obscured by bone
- Contrast material used in MRI exams is less likely to produce an allergic reaction than the iodine-based ones used for x-rays and CT scanning
