Magnetic Resonance Imaging

An MRI uses magnetic waves and computers to make two-dimensional and three-dimensional pictures of the inside of the body. Parkridge uses a "large bore" MRI unit, which means that patients who may be subject to claustrophobia are less likely to be troubled by the experience. By the same token, the large bore machine is better able to handle patients who may be larger than average.
