Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) at the hospitals of Methodist Health System
What is an MRI?
An MRI uses radiofrequency waves (rather than radiation) and a strong magnetic field to produce clear and detailed pictures of internal organs and tissues.
Who needs an MRI?MRI can help diagnose a broad range of disorders and diseases including cancer, heart and blood vessel disease, stroke, neurological disorders, and disorders of the joints or musculoskeletal system. Because it doesn’t use radiation, MRI is often preferred for examining the reproductive system, pelvis, hips, or bladder.
Where is this test performed?MRI is available by the order of a physician at:
Methodist Dallas Medical Center
Methodist Charlton Medical Center
Methodist Mansfield Medical Center
Methodist Richardson Medical Center
