Quick facts about MRI

  • MRI uses a powerful magnetic field, radiofrequency waves, and a computer to create detailed cross-sectional (2-dimensional) and 3-dimensional images of the inside of your body without using ionizing radiation (like X-rays, computed tomography, or nuclear imaging).
  • The test can show your heart’s structure (muscle, valves and chambers) and how well blood flows through your heart and major vessels.
  • MRI of the heart lets your doctor see if your heart is damaged from a heart attack, or if there is lack of blood flow to the heart muscle because of narrowed or blocked arteries.
  • MRI of the brain is used to diagnose stroke, aneurysm and other brain abnormalities.
  • MRI of the pelvis and legs helps to diagnose peripheral artery disease (PAD).
