An MRI scan at LivingCare can be used to examine the following parts of the body:
brain and spinal cord
bones and joints
Internal structures of your ear
The results of an MRI scan can be used to help diagnose conditions, plan treatments and assess how effective previous treatment has been. The machine uses a magnetic field and radio waves, together with an advanced computer system to build up a series of images, each one showing a thin slice of the area being examined. These images are very detailed and can show both bones and soft tissues in the body and can provide a great deal of information. Using the computer system the ‘slices’ can obtained in any direction.
