Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses powerful magnets, radio waves and a computer to construct pictures of the body depicting details that can’t be seen using other imaging techniques. It is one of the safest imaging techniques available because it uses magnetic signals to see through the body instead of exposing the patient to radiation. In addition to safety, MRIs offer a number of other significant patient benefits including:
- Early detection of many conditions
- Excellent information from detailed images
- No known harmful side effects
- Non-invasive procedure
Our team members’ compassion and understanding help maximize patient comfort during an MRI exam. At many of our imaging centers, we offer a wide variety of comfort services designed specifically to lessen anxiety patients often experience when getting an MRI or imaging exam.
At BayCare Health System, we’re committed to making the most advanced MRI technology available to our patients and to maintaining the highest level of imaging excellence.
