It is used to form pictures of the anatomy and the physiological processes of the body in both health and disease. MRI is also called Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Imaging (NMRI) or Magnetic Resonance Tomography (MRT). MRI scanners use strong magnetic fields and radio waves to form images of human body. There are a wide range of applications of MRI in medical diagnosis. It is used to detect health issues and diseases very accurately from a human body. It can be used to diagnose heart problems and strokes, brain tumors, trauma to the head or brain, spine problems, heart problems and strokes, joints and bones, abnormalities of brain and spinal cord, liver and other abdominal diseases, uterine abnormalities in women etc. An MRI scan is seen as a better choice than a CT scan (Computed Tomography Scan) as it provides more superior images of internal body parts and it doesn’t expose potentially harmful radiation to either patient or technician while CT Scan still have this risk.
