Message from the Editor:
I find this guide fascinating as I have worked and studied extensively in the field of radiology. Magnetic Resonance Imaging is quite exciting and is still a young field and technique. The first x-ray was in the 19th century, whereas the first MRI published studies occurred in the 20th century.

A Guide to Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Magnetic Resonance Imaging MRI is a procedure available in the medical field of radiology. It is used to view the interior composition of the human body. It is more powerful than a CT Scan or an x-ray because it can provide better contrast of how an internal organ looks. When using an mri scan, a physician can diagnosis medical conditions such as cancer or view abnormal brain activity. The magnetic resonance imaging machine uses a magnetic field to view and define the structure of organs such as the heart or brain. It can also be used to view the integrity of the bones, nerves and joints.
