Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is mainly used in neurology and neurosurgery to evaluate the brain, spinal cord and spinal nerves.
  • It also plays an important role in the orthopaedic evaluation of joints and some bone conditions. It is very valuable to assess the spread of cancer, especially to the brain but also to the bones and the rest of the body.
  • MRI provides important information regarding certain heart conditions, specifically congenital and functional conditions and is an important tool in determining the viability of injured heart muscle.
