What Is an MRI?

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a noninvasive imaging test that helps practitioners diagnose medical conditions. MRI uses a powerful magnetic field, radio frequency waves, and a computer to produce detailed pictures of internal structures. Detailed MRI exams allow physicians to better evaluate parts of the body that other imaging modalities may not offer.

MRIs may represent the most significant advancement in medical imaging since the discovery of x-rays. The MRI image is created through an interaction between radio frequency and a strong magnetic field. This noninvasive procedure provides detailed pictures of organs, tissues, and the skeletal system without radiation to the patient. FirstMRI provides high-quality, affordable results with cutting-edge technology and experienced, patient-focused staff.

Is It Safe?

An MRI is very safe. It is a noninvasive test without side effects. There is no use of radiation or radioactive injections and all patients are screened before the exam. Our site is accredited by the American College of Radiology.
