An MRI is an essential tool that gives your doctor information on what is causing your symptoms. They take pictures of the body’s interior to provide detailed images of tissues, organs, and joints. Although there’s no radiation exposure, MRI tests may not be safe for everyone; you should consult your doctor and radiologist before receiving medical scans. For patients who can have MRI exams, they are incredibly safe.
What Type of MRI Do I Need?
MRIs are widely used to identify sports-related injuries in the spine, knee, shoulder, hip, elbow, and wrist, soft-tissue abnormalities such as tumors and nerve damage, and diseases such as multiple sclerosis or primary bone tumors. MRAs evaluate arteries in the neck and brain and identify abnormalities. Weight-bearing MRIs reveal herniation and bulges around the spinal canal not normally visible in a laying-down position. MRIs with NeuroQuant technology can monitor brain atrophy over time, and MRIs with Arthrograms provide detailed joint information.
