Magnetic Resonance Imaging

MRI is an acronym for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. MRI is a diagnostic tool of getting pictures of various parts of your body without the use of X-rays. Unlike X-rays and computed tomographic (CT) scans, which use radiation, a MRI uses powerful magnets and radio waves. A radio wave antenna is used to send signals to the body and then receive signals back. These returning signals are converted into pictures by a computer attached to the scanner. Pictures of almost any part of your body can be obtained at almost any particular angle. MRI can be used to diagnose various orthopaedic conditions and also other conditions. The MRI scans give very detailed images of the body part subjected to scan and help in better diagnosis and treatment approach to patients.
