What is MRI ?

“MRI is the best tool for making medical diagnoses.”

Magnetic Resonance Imaging, known as MRI, is a tool used for creating inner organs images by using the electromagnetic and radio waves. Hydrogen molecules in the human body respond to these magnetic waves differently depending on each body part. As a result, inner organ images, such as the brain, spine, liver, kidneys are created. In addition, MRI can distinguish the normal tissues and the abnormal ones.

COMPARE MRI WITH OTHER TYPES OF EXAMINATIONS

Normal X-Ray

  • An examination using X-rays projected through the body and organs to create X-ray images
  • A preliminary examination providing fewer details than CT-scan and MRI

CT-scan

  • An examination using X-rays projected through the body in certain angles to create cross-section images
  • Illustrates clear details of organs in the chest cavity, suitable for lungs examinations
  • Illustrates clear details of injury of organs from accidents
  • Illustrates clear details of intracerebral hemorrhage

MRI

  • An examination using electromagnetic waves without radiation
  • Illustrates clear details of nerves (e.g., spinal cord), suitable for disease examinations, such as backache from herniated disc
  • Illustrates clear details of sinews, suitable for checking for sinews and muscles injury
  • Illustrates clear details of tumor, such as cancer or internal inflammation
