Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses radio frequency waves and a strong magnetic field to provide remarkably clear and detailed pictures of internal organs and tissues. The technique has proven valuable for the diagnosis of a broad range of pathologic conditions in all parts of the body, including cancer, heart and vascular disease, stroke, and joint and musculoskeletal disorders.
Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA) is a magnetic resonance technique that allows the non-invasive evaluation of blood vessels within the body. Unlike traditional angiography, MRA requires no arterial puncture or catheter manipulations to generate exquisitely detailed images of the body's arterial or venous systems.
Northwest Hospital Imaging offers state-of-the-art MRI/MRA services. Patients can listen to music through a stereo connection to help reduce acoustical noise. We have a stock of more than 200 CDs to choose from or patients can bring a CD of their choice.
