Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a diagnostic technique based on the principles of magnetic resonance. MRI is a type of scan that uses strong magnetic fields and radio waves to produce detailed images of the inside of the body. MRI is completely harmless for the patient. MRI can be used to evaluate various parts of the body. It gives very detailed pictures of soft tissues like the brain, joints, the discs of the spine.
Is MRI safe to the patient?
An MRI examination causes no pain and the magnetic fields produce no known tissue damage of any kind.
How long does the examination with MRI take?
The scanning of one zone of the body usually takes about 20 minutes. The scanning of more than one zones of the body takes longer time. The time depends on the diagnosis and on the type of examination. For example it takes more time for images with high resolution of very small anatomical structures.
