Magnetic Resonance Imaging, or MRI uses radio frequency pulses and a strong magnetic field to make pictures of organs and structures inside the body. This imaging technique allows physicians to evaluate bodily structures that may not be as visible with other diagnostic imaging methods. At Vestavia Diagnostic Center, our MRI is a 1.5 wide bore magnet -the most advanced MRI machine available. This system offers patients much more room than traditional MRI machines, helping to alleviate the “closed in” feeling that some patients experience.
Computed Tomography, or CT, is a safe, painless procedure that uses X-ray and computer equipment to create cross-sectional images of a patient’s body structures. CT imaging allows physicians to examine soft tissue, bones, muscle, internal organs, and blood vessels.
