Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Definition - What does Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) mean?

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a medical imaging procedure used for diagnosing a disease or an abnormal health condition. It is used in radiology to examine the anatomy of body parts and organs that cannot be properly seen through normal X-rays. The body part to be examined is placed in an MRI equipment for digital scanning and observation, and the results are saved or stored.

Techopedia explains Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

MRI is a special scanning method for studying body organs, bones and skulls where normal X-ray scanning fails to detect a disease or condition. This method makes use of strong magnetic fields and radio waves to form an image of the body; the affected region of the body does not show a normal resonant image and hence can be detected. MRI is widely used in hospitals and morgue for medical diagnosis, staging of diseases, and conditions where ionizing radiations are to be avoided. MRI has greatly helped doctors in getting a better view of soft tissues and in detecting issues, hence improving the treatment system.
