Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)


Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is available at Maury Regional Medical Center, Spring Hill Imaging CenterMarshall Medical CenterLewis Health Center and Wayne Medical Center.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging uses a powerful magnetic field combined with radio waves to stimulate the body’s water molecules. These stimulated molecules release signals that produce cross-sectional images similar to pictures of slices through the body. A special computer analyzes this information and creates an image of the tissue or bone on a video screen.

MRI studies are conducted by ARRT registered MRI technologists and results are interpreted by board-certified radiologists. Our technologists are familiar with implantable medical devices such as pacemakers, pain pumps and bladder stimulators. Technologists have completed all educational requirements to safely scan patients with certain MR-conditional devices. All devices must be approved by our safety officer prior to testing.
