Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

MRI strength is seen in its ability to image soft tissues structures such as brain, eyes, pituitary gland, spinal cord, nerves, muscles, tendons and can differentiate normal tissue from tumours pr various disease processes.

MRI of the brain is often used to evaluate and define tumour types, infection, seizure disorders, strokes, hydrocephalus and other damage as a result of trauma. MRI of the spine is used for diagnoses of spinal cord tumours or syrinx, herniated disks, spinal cord compression and cord inflammation. Knee and hip MRI can be used to investigate tendon or ligament tears, bone or muscle tumours and inflammation.
