MRI stands for magnetic resonance imaging. It is used to produce detailed internal body images using magnetic fields and radio waves. An MRI scan is used to examine the brain and the spinal cord, internal organs, joints and bones and heart and blood vessels. During an MRI scan, a patient is asked to lie completely still on a flat surface and is then moved into the scanner. A radiographer operates the scanner to obtain many different types of images, which will can then be studied on a computer screen. MRI scans are used to help diagnose a wide variety of diseases.
