MRI, or Magnetic Resonance Imaging, is a non-invasive procedure used in radiology to study the anatomy of a patient through the use of magnetic fields, field gradients, and radio waves which are then reconstructed into images by a special computer. MRI is considered to be advanced cross sectional imaging as is CT. Also, MRIs are highly versatile and are used in medicine for diagnostic procedures as well as research. Today’s medical imaging has taken a considerable advancement with 3T MRI. This new breakthrough technology has generated a great step for radiology, from lower strength MRIs to 3T MRI which provides patients with improved options for diagnosis. The Radiology Clinic offers 3T MRI’s to residents of Gaithersburg MD and is happy to provide their patients with the latest technology.
