WHAT IS MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING (MRI)?
- An advanced technique where a powerful magnet, radiofrequency pulses and computers are used to produce detailed pictures of organs, soft tissues and virtually all internal body structures.
- It does not use ionising radiation.
- Due to the strength of the magnetic field, certain devices such as cardiac pacemakers, automatic internal defibrillators and other medical implanted devices may prohibit you from having a MRI. Please notify the radiographer of any implanted devices in your body before you enter the MRI room.
Uses a powerful magnet and radio frequency pulses to produce detailed images of the internal body structures.
