Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) allows physicians to view internal body structures without ionizing X-Ray radiation to detect developing diseases or abnormalities earlier.
MRI uses a powerful magnetic field and radio waves to produce clear images of body structures such as the brain, spine, and other vital organs. The Hospital of Central Connecticut offers state-of-the art MRI services with advanced imaging capabilities while providing maximum patient comfort.
MRI technology is unrivaled in its ability to produce high resolution images of soft tissue and structural anatomy. Conditions that may be apparent from physical signs and symptoms may be clearly seen, providing better information to determine appropriate diagnosis and treatment.
An MRI of the breast is an evolving and increasingly-popular imaging technique. Although it is not a replacement for traditional mammography, breast MRI is extremely helpful in evaluating mammogram abnormalities and identifying early breast cancer, especially in women at high risk.
