Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses magnets, radio waves and computers to create extremely detailed pictures of “images” of your internal organs and structures. Because MRI lets your doctor see inside your body from any angle with great clarity, it provides a wealth of diagnostic information more quickly and easily than previous tests and exploratory surgeries.

It assists in diagnosis of a wide range of conditions, including heart and vascular diseases; stroke, abdominal and brain disorders; and common problems in the knee and shoulder.
