MRI Scans, or magnetic resonance imaging, is the process of using both powerful magnetic fields and radio waves to generate extremely detailed images of your body. MRI scans are most commonly used on the brain to diagnose potential injuries. These scans allow physicians to detect brain injuries, signs of stroke, infections and even aneurysms. However, MRI Scans aren’t just for the brain. These scans can also be ordered to view potential joint damage, bone infections, and damage within the heart. Unlike X-Rays and CT Scans, there is no radiation involved in the use of MRI Machines, so there is no risk of any radiation-related illnesses. Progressive Diagnostic Imaging is proud to offer an Open MRI Machine & MRI Imaging in Riverdale NJ.
What is an open MRI?
