Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is an advanced, non-invasive diagnostic imaging procedure that creates detailed images of internal bodily structures without the use of ionized radiation (x-rays). An MRI is able to produce these detailed images through the use of a powerful magnet, radio waves and a computer.

MRI can assist physicians in detecting and diagnosing diseases or other abnormalities in very early stages that may not be assessed adequately with other imaging methods such as with CT, Ultrasound or X-Ray. It is also used to diagnosis degenerative joint disorders, muscle or tendons, fractures, arthritis, trauma to an area of the body, sports related injuries, infections and tumors. The most common and best uses for this procedure are in imaging of the brain, major joints, any type of spinal conditions and examining soft tissues like the muscle, ligaments or bone.
