So, what is an MRI scan?

Magnetic Resonance Imaging provides detailed images of the organs and soft tissue in the body. Using magnetics and radio waves, an MRI scan produces high quality two- and three-dimensional images of the inside of the body. It is suitable and widely used to view organs, muscles, tendons, ligaments, soft tissues and bones.
