About the MRI
An MRI is an imaging test that uses radio waves and powerful magnetic fields to produce detailed, computer-generated pictures of areas inside the body. These pictures can show the difference between healthy and unhealthy tissues. Unlike X-rays, an MRI does not use radiation and deliveries better images for in-depth analysis.
The MRI scanner at Millennium Diagnostic Center provides safe, accurate diagnostic imaging for a wide array of injuries, conditions and diseases. An MRI has multiple diagnostic purposes:
- Determine if a tumor is noncancerous or cancerous
- Learn more about the size and location of the tumor
- Help plan cancer treatments, such as surgery or radiation therapy
- Monitor how well treatment is working
- Diagnose cardiac conditions and strokes
- Assess blood flow and vascular conditions
- Diagnose breast disease
- Examine male and female reproductive organs
- Determine and examine conditions and injuries to the brain, neck, spinal cord, bones, joints and other soft tissues
- Evaluate infections
Our MRIs are designed to help maximize patient comfort while maintain excellent image quality. The new GEM Suite surface coil technology reflects the importance of making the geometry of the equipment and technology compatible with the patient. The combined features of the entire Suite are designed to facilitate high resolution, signal-to-noise (SNR) imaging from the top of the head down to the feet, while maximizing the comfort of patients across many different shapes, sizes and situations.
The MRI is performed by a radiology technologist who is specially trained and certified to perform an MRI. After the MRI is completed, our highly experienced, board-certified radiologists read and interpret the imaging tests. A signed report will be sent to your primary care or referring physicians, who will share results with you.
