So, did your doctor ask you to undergo an MRI? Or have you heard of the term “MRI” before? Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a special test that takes pictures of organs and other structures inside the body. This is done through using a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy. Through MRI, we will be able to know some health problems that cannot be detected by simple imaging. To break it down, an MRI is done because of the following reasons:
Head and spine problems
An MRI scan can detect problems in the head and spine such as tumors, bleeding, aneurysm, nerve injury, optic and auditory nerve problems, disc bulges, spinal stenosis and spinal tumors.
Chest and blood vessel problems
An MRI scan can look deeper into the heart and its valves. The lungs and the blood vessels can also be taken into account in an MRI scan.
Since we cannot really get a fuller and clearer view of our internal organs, an MRI scan can detect problems in the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, kidneys and bladder. It can also detect problems in the prostate for men and problems in the ovaries and uterus for women.
Arthritis, bone tumors, bone marrow, and cartilage, tendon and ligament problems can be detected through an MRI scan. An MRI scan can speak more answers about a health condition than that of an X-ray. However, you should consult the doctor first as to what he/she recommends the most.
