The development of MRI allows the examination of the human body accurately using a non-invasive tool without potentially harmful radiation.
The following are just some of the examples where an MRI scan is used:
Abnormalities of the brain and spinal cord
Tumors, cysts , and other abnormalities in various parts of the body
Injuries or abnormalities of the joints, such as back pain
Certain types of heart problems
