A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan uses magnets and radio waves to produce both two and three dimensional pictures of the inside of your body. It’s suitable for every part of the body, including bones, soft tissues (such as blood vessels, ligaments and muscles) and the brain.
Orthopaedics ‐ An MRI scan is often used to look at tissue around joints and bones, and can help to diagnose injuries to your elbow, hip and knee. It can also detect conditions such as arthritis or tendon tears.
Neurology ‐ MRI is one of the most commonly used tests in neurology and neurosurgery to provide exquisite detail of brain, spinal cord and vascular anatomy. Scans can be used to help analyse the brain for tumours, possible causes of a headache and abnormal tissue growth. They may also be used to assess any damage to the brain after a stroke.
Physiotherapy ‐ MRI scans are an invaluable tool for physical therapists to accurately diagnose and assess movement dysfunction and pain. MRI can capture detailed images of adult musculoskeletal injuries such as sports injuries, whiplash or back problems.
Tumours ‐ MRIs can produce detailed images of soft tissue, which show the difference between normal and diseased tissue such as a tumour. It can also check the progress of a tumour to establish whether it is shrinking or growing.
