Each year, approximately 10 million individuals undergo MRI procedures in some fashion. MRI, or magnetic resonance imaging, is a medical imaging technique used in radiology to produce detailed pictures of organs, soft tissues, bone, and virtually all other internal body structures. This occurs by the use of magnetic fields and radio waves to produce cross-sectional images that ultimately show the difference between healthy and unhealthy tissue.
Since 1973, when the first magnetic resonance image was published, the MRI approach has become widely accepted as an accurate diagnosis tool of potential bodily issues including tumors, joint abnormalities, heart problems, liver diseases, and more. It is also considered painless and extremely safe when proper safety precautions are followed.
