Magnetic Resonance Imaging Scan (MRI Scan)

Author: Webmaster / August 8, 2016 / Categories:

A radiology procedure that produces images of internal body structures and organs through the use of magnetism and radio waves. An individual is placed on a bed within the MRI scanner that is surrounded by a magnet. The magnet creates a strong field that aligns the body’s protons and exposes them to a beam of radio waves. During this process, a signal is created and detected by the MRI scanner. A computer then processes this signal and ultimately produces a detailed image of slight variations within the body.
