Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Chest X-Ray

Using a strong magnetic field, radio waves and advanced computing, an MRI generates cross-sectional “slices” of your body for in-depth examination. Producing high-definition images of the body, MRIs can easily detect subtle changes in your body’s structures, ensuring the most accurate diagnosis and best treatment plan.

What type of MRI are you looking for?

Used to capture detailed pictures of joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and bones, this MRI is often the best choice when looking for sport-related injuries, tears and strains in ligaments or muscles, bone fractures, overuse injuries, or bleeding within joints and tissues.
