MRI stands for Magnetic resonance imaging and is a safe and painless diagnostic test. It uses a large magnet and radio waves to provide detailed pictures of organs and other structures inside the human body.
MRI scans can be used to diagnose a variety of conditions of the body, from tumors to torn ligaments. MRI is a very useful test for examining the brain and spinal cord. An MRI scan uses a strong magnetic field and radio waves to display pictures of tissues, organs and other structures of the body on a computer screen.
