Why Use MRI?

Because all MRIs utilize magnets and electricity to produce images, a great benefit of having one is that the patient is not exposed to ionizing radiation, as they would be with a common x-ray or with a CT scan. This makes the MRI one of the safest diagnostic procedures to have. The complex technology used to create the MRI scan allows an unparalleled view of the human body, with images available in 3-D, available in cross-sections and as well as regular 2-D images.
