On-Site Imaging Services

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses a powerful magnetic field, radio frequency pulses, and a computer to produce detailed pictures of organs, soft tissues, bone, and virtually all other internal body structures.

Unlike CT scans and X-rays, MRI does not use radiation. Rather, it utilizes a powerful magnet which aligns hydrogen atoms from water molecules in the body in such a way that it produces a magnetic field in the body which can be detected by the scanner. Radio frequency, also known as resonance, is used to slightly alter the alignment in order to compose more detailed information.

An MRI can capture different information about the body than other imaging techniques including X- ray, ultrasound, or CT scan. It is especially useful for obtaining images with detailed contrast between the soft tissues of the body, such as muscles, ligaments, cartilage, and other joint structures.

For your convenience we now offer our own MRI services. Our state of the art facility is equipped with the latest technology, and is located on the first floor at our main office location in Plantation. We offer open MRI, which many patients find to be more comfortable than a traditional MRI.
