What is MRI?
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a safe, accurate and painless diagnostic imaging test used by radiologists to see areas of the body that cannot be seen with a conventional X-ray
MRI uses a magnetic field and highly specialized imaging software to create detailed images of organs, soft tissue, bones and other body parts. MRI exams are especially useful in helping to diagnose nervous system, musculoskeletal and cancer-related diseases or injury. MRI is also one of the safest imaging tests you can have. There is no exposure to ionizing radiation of any kind.
MRI is the best imaging test to visualize the spinal cord and its nerves. That’s because MRI is able to detect subtle changes in the spinal column that may show an early stage of disease or infection. It is more sensitive than CT scanning when it comes to soft tissues surrounding the spine.
