What is an MRI and How Does an MRI Work?

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a medical imaging exam that uses a strong magnetic field and radio waves to collect detailed information about the organs and tissues of the body. MRI does not use x-ray or radiation.

Open MRI is used to accommodate claustrophobic, obese and pediatric patients. Conventional MRI scanners are a cylinder shape, while an open MRI does not completely surround your body. It is usually open on two or three sides. An Open MRI provides a more relaxed, less confining environment and lower noise levels making it less stressful for you.

Open MRI for Spine and Joints

What parts of the body is an MRI useful for? MRI Imaging is useful when scanning and analyzing various parts of the body such as:

Brain
Spine
Shoulder
Elbow
Wrist/Hand
Hip
Knee
Ankle
Foot

MRI helps diagnose conditions like spinal stenosis, herniated discs, and others. It’s usually the first step before deciding whether procedures like radiofrequency ablation or laser surgery is necessary.
