"Each of our offices provides state of the art x-ray capabilities. Our convenient MRI services are provided at our Granite Run campus"
One of the most widely used imaging tests for diagnostic purposes is magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). These scans will help your physician diagnosis your condition and identify the right course of treatment
Whereas an X-ray is used to take pictures of bones and related structures, an MRI is used to take pictures of the soft tissue structures such as muscle, nerves, ligaments and tendons. MRI is also used for imaging the spinal canal and brain. Unlike an X-ray, it uses no radiation.
An MRI is not only used for diagnostic purposes but also to track the effectiveness of treatment, the progression of a disease, or the healing of an injury. MRI scanning produces fast results and high-quality images of the body's inner structures.

Pre-Study Phone Call
You may be receiving a phone call prior to your MRI exam date to review a series of MRI safety questions about your surgical history. It is important to answer these questions as accurately as you can.
Once you arrive for your appointment, the technologist will review the MRI safety questions with you. Dress comfortably as you will be asked to change into a gown and remove your jewelry if possible.
