MRI is a way of obtaining detailed images of organs and tissues throughout the body without the need for x-rays or "ionizing" radiation. Instead, MRI uses a powerful magnetic field, radio waves, rapidly changing magnetic fields and a computer to create images that show if there is an injury, disease process or abnormal condition present.

MRI has evolved to become one of the most valuable diagnostic tools ever developed. The powerful magnetic field of the MR system can attract objects made from certain metals and cause them to move suddenly and with great force. This can pose a possible risk to the patient or anyone in the object's “flight path”. Hence, one of the most important elements in delivering this valuable imaging service involves maintaining a safe environment. MRI screening provides patients and doctors with an invaluable diagnostic resource but as with any tool, it is most effective when used in accordance with proper guidelines and safety measures.
