Understanding Magnetic Resonance Imaging

MRI is a type of diagnostic imaging that uses magnetic fields, not radiation, to obtain high resolution, three-dimensional images of any area of the body. It is considered to be the most effective form of imaging for musculoskeletal structures, muscles, the brain, and the spinal cord.

At CAMIS, we do not perform whole body screening MRI.
