Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

MRI allows you to obtain images of various areas of the body without X-ray irradiation, using a strong magnetic field and radio waves. Currently, MRI is the most modern and at the same time technically the most sophisticated way of visualization in radiology. Requirements for the quality of such examinations, respectively, are very high.

Typical applications include, but are not limited to, diseases:

  • Skulls (e.g. inflammatory processes, tumors)
  • Spine (e.g. a herniated disc)
  • Bones and joints (e.g. meniscus and ligament injuries)
  • Thoracic cavity (for example, with unclear results of X-ray mammography or ultrasound examination of the thoracic cavity with scars after surgery performed)
  • Heart and blood vessels (for example, heart defects, diseases of the pelvic organs, legs, vessels of the head and neck)
  • Abdomen (liver, MR-cholangiography, virtual endoscopy)
