MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
An MRI machine uses computer control waves and large magnets which creates a magnetic field. It sends waves into the body and then measures the response of cells by way of computer. From these responses the computer creates a three dimensional picture of the inside of the body. The MRI is used to examine the central nervous system ( brain and spinal cord) it can be used to identify tumours, strokes, degenerative diseases, inflamation, infection and abnormalities in organs and other soft tissues of the body.
