Unlike other imaging methods, MRI technology uses magnetic fields and radio waves to create images of any part of the body. So, what is Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and why is it done?
What is MRI?
MRI is a medical technique used to clearly distinguish certain anatomical structures from other structures, to detect and identify differences between healthy and diseased tissues, using radio waves in a strong magnetic field created by large magnets.
In Which Diseases Is MRI Used?
MRI can be applied to different parts of the body for different purposes. MRI is particularly suitable for imaging the bony parts or soft tissues of the body. Migraine, headaches, neurological disorders, patients with a suspected brain tumor, patients with epileptic seizures, patients with eye, ear, jaw joint problems, spinal problems, disc slippage and disc herniation, evaluation of joints and ligaments such as shoulder, knee, sports injuries, heart MRI can be used for diseases of the chest and abdomen, internal organ disorders, and bone structure disorders.
