Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a diagnostic procedure that uses a combination of large magnets, radiofrequencies, and a computer to produce detailed images of organs and structures within the body. Many changes in tissue can be evaluated by MRI. This information will give your doctor valuable information that is not available by other diagnostic tests. There are no known health risks to MRI.
