Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Our Centralized Scheduling staff will contact you to schedule your appointment

An MRI uses magnetic radio waves to look at organs and structures inside the body. It is a painless and non-invasive procedure and normally takes from 20 to 60 minutes.

No preparation needed for testing

The development of the MRI scan represents a huge milestone for the medical world, as doctors, scientists, and researchers are now able to examine the inside of the human body accurately using a non-invasive tool.

The following are just some of the examples where an MRI scanner is used:

Abnormalities of the brain and spinal cord

Tumors, cysts, and other abnormalities in various parts of the body

Injuries or abnormalities of the joints, such as back pain

Certain types of heart problems

Diseases of the liver and other abdominal organs

Causes of pelvic pain in women (e.g. fibroids, endometriosis)

Suspected uterine abnormalities in women undergoing evaluation for infertility
