What is magnetic resonance imaging, and for what purpose is it used?

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a modern, safe, informative method of visual diagnostics. Images of the body and organs are made by using radio waves of a powerful magnetic field which is created by the MRI scanner. An important benefit of MR examination is the absence of ionizing radiation that is harmful to the human body.

The following organs are examined by using MRI:

  • head and head/neck blood vessels;
  • soft tissues of the neck;
  • chest;
  • organs of the abdomen and pelvis;
  • system of bile tract;
  • spine;
  • bone joints;
  • whole body (MR Total body);
  • total spine (MR Total spine);
  • heart.

At the new magnetic resonance room are available state funded examinations. Patient’s fee for the examination is 28.46 EUR.
