Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI or MR) is an advanced imaging technique which uses powerful magnetic fields and radio waves to create detailed images of the body without exposure to radiation. Advanced MRI techniques are continually being developed, including MR-Angiography (study of blood vessels), functional MR – fMRI (study of activity of certain organs, such as the brain), MR Spectroscopy – MRS (obtaining biochemical information from tissues), and cine-MR (to study moving organs, such as the heart).
