MRI images are truly captivating. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is utilized by physicians to create a visual picture inside of the body of important diagnostic information. The musculoskeletal system, bone marrow abnormalities, congenital cardiac abnormalities, and internal organs are just a few of the internal images MRI’s are best for.
While many of us know what MRI’s are used for and what they are like, actually visualizing the images they create brings the technology to life. Here are a few moving images from MRI scans that will take your breath away.
Heart MRI’s can be used to monitor and diagnose heart disease. For certain heart conditions, MRI’s provide the best diagnostic images compared to other scans. MRI scans can be used to give physicians an inside look into the various heart chambers, valves, blood flow through major vessels, and the surrounding structures.
