Magnetic Resonance Imaging
MRI scanning is a powerful medical diagnostic tool that uses a strong magnetic field to produce high-quality, images in multiple planes or directions. The images are generated using superconducting magnets and pulsed radio waves. Magnetic resonance imaging uses non ionising radiation, unlike x-rays which uses radiation.
MRI is used to diagnose a wide range of conditions. Wide bore MRI scans are available at Alliance Medical’s centres and scans can be performed feet-first.
