Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses two safe and natural forces, a magnetic field and radio waves, to produce vivid images of internal body parts. These images are read by our board certified radiologist, and the results are then sent to your doctor who will review them with you.  This procedure is non-invasive and painless.  Some patients experience anxiety or a feeling claustrophobia.  Our staff will make every effort possible to ensure your comfort. Please inform us, or your doctor when you schedule your exam if you feel you may need a sedative. For your added comfort you may bring a CD to listen to during the exam.
