Last updated 2 years ago

Around the world, physicians perform Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scans every day to diagnose and monitor a variety of health conditions. In fact, 30 million MRI scans are performed each year in the U.S. alone. By generating a powerful magnetic field, an MRI machine aligns the protons in your body to create a three-dimensional image of internal tissues, organs, and structures.
