MRI

With a comprehensive array of MRI services, the Advanced Imaging Center offers ample and convenient appointment availability to our patients. Because we know your comfort is important, we offer short waiting times in a quiet, relaxed atmosphere that includes soothing music during your exam.

What is MRI?

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a technique that allows doctors to see inside the human body in remarkable detail without using x-rays. Instead, MRI uses a powerful magnet, radio waves and a sophisticated computer system. This scan will provide your doctor with important information on certain types of body tissue (internal organs, joints, brain and spine) differently than an x-ray or a computed tomography (CT) scan.

Our Technology

Utilizing the most advanced machinery available, our sophisticated imaging and advanced applications enable us to detect disease earlier and to begin working with you to design an effective treatment and intervention plan.
