Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) is the primary imaging modality for evaluation of diseases of the brain and spine. It is effective in depicting abnormalities of the eye, paranasal sinuses, throat, salivary glands, and the thyroid. MRI is the modality of choice for imaging of the musculoskeletal system and is widely used for evaluation of the shoulder, back, elbow, wrist, hip, knee and ankle. It can also accurately depict abnormalities within the bone marrow.
The display of blood vessels known as MR angiography is an accurate, noninvasive means of obtaining information about arteries of the head, neck and body. MRI is a painless, noninvasive procedure, uses no radiation and has no known side effects.
