Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a test that uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to make pictures of organs and structures inside the body. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is done for many reasons. It is used to find problems such as tumours, bleeding, injury, blood vessel diseases, or infection. MRI also may be done to provide more information about a problem seen on an X-ray, ultrasound scan, or CT scan
A whole body MRI scan looks at the body from head to toe in order to find cancers, inflammation or obstructive processes in the body. In the head, the exam can show brain masses, shrinkage, old strokes, the sinuses and nasal cavities. In the neck, abnormalities in the lymph nodes, thyroid masses or arthritis in the cervical spine can be identified. In the chest, the exam can show heart for enlargement, the lungs for cancer, and the aorta for aneurysms. Moving to the abdomen, the exam can show the pelvis area, the kidneys, liver, spleen, adrenal glands, gallbladder (gallstones), pancreas, bladder, uterus, ovaries and prostate for tumors, obstruction or inflammation. The exam can tailor images of the spine to show the spinal canal, disc herniation, and spinal stenosis; and in the extremities, arthritis in the joints. Additional exams of a specific area may be required if a problem is identified in order to obtain more detailed information. This exam is useful for individuals who are asymptomatic, yet want an overview of their current health condition. Early detection of cancers can radically change the type of treatment options that will be available to a patient.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a type of non-invasive test that uses magnets and radio waves to create images of the inside of the body. The magnets and radio waves create cross-sectional images of the body part, which allows doctors to check for abnormalities in the tissues and organs without making an incision. An MRI whole body generates picture of all the body organs which includes head, neck, chest, abdomen, pelvis,skeleton, spine, lymph nodes and its surrounding soft tissues. The technology used in an MRI allows doctors to examine soft tissues without bones obstructing the view. An MRI uses no radiation and is considered a safer alternative to a CT scan.
