Chicago, IL 60657

Magnetic Resonance Imaging, or MRI, is a diagnostic procedure that uses a combination of a large magnet and radio waves to produce highly detailed images of the bone, organs and structures within the body. Aided by a computer, MRI is able to produce images from many different body angles and plans, which enables radiologists to quickly and precisely diagnose a wide variety of conditions. The procedure is painless and extremely safe.

An MRI is often used for the following reasons:

  • Examine the heart, brain, liver, pancreas, male and female reproductive organs and other soft tissues.
  • Assess blood flow.
  • Detect tumors and diagnose many forms of cancer.
  • Evaluate infections.
  • Assess injuries to bones and joints.
