What is an MRI?

An MRI uses a powerful magnetic field, radio waves and a computer to produce detailed images of organs, soft tissues, bone and virtually all other internal body structures. Telemetry units and infusion pumps may not enter the magnet, and patients with a pacemaker cannot have an MRI. Patients with aneurysm clips, filters or stents, metallic implants and injuries involving metal fragments will need to be evaluated to determine if an MRI can be performed.
