A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan is a common procedure used by hospitals around the world. MRI uses a strong magnetic field and radio waves to create detailed images of the organs and tissues within the body.
The development of MRI revolutionized the medical world. Since its discovery, doctors and researchers have refined techniques so as to use MRI scans to not only assist in medical procedures but also aid in research.
MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) is a safe and painless way to get detailed high definition pictures of the human body and is often recommended for a more accurate diagnosis of many health problems. An MRI machine uses a strong magnetic field and radio waves to produce these high quality computer images. Early detection of many conditions helps doctors diagnose with precision, moving toward a recovery action plan and generally, a better health outcome.
For many people, a major part of the discomfort or dread of an MRI comes from claustrophobia or the sense of being trapped. Imagine getting into a piece of machinery that resembles a cave. Imagine being alone and being restricted by a metallic structure. These feelings are understandable and would potentially give anyone an uneasy feeling. Your mind may wander to the most undesirable places and this is why many people suggest using mental relaxation techniques during your MRI.
