Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Magnetic Resonance Imaging is used by doctors to determine the magnitude of some head injuries and injuries related to the nervous system. The test involves scanning the patient with the help of radio waves created by a varying magnetic field to obtain clear sectional images of the body.

The MRI is a non invasive and painless procedure. The whole procedure usually lasts for about an hour and the duration may increase depending on the number of parts being scanned. The test involves the patient lying down on a table that can slide in and out of a long cylindrical tube which is the MRI machine. The only thing that you might feel during the test is a sound because of the magnets being constantly switched on and off.
