List of Procedures in this Category

Breast MRI

A noninvasive test that uses an intravenous contrast, magnetic field, radio waves, and a computer to produce detailed images of the breast's soft tissue.

Body MRI

An imaging test that uses a magnetic field and radio waves to captures images of the chest, abdomen and/or pelvic regions.

Neuro MRI

A type of MRI that helps diagnose tumors, herniated and degenerated discs, spinal injuries, brain injuries and any injuries or conditions associated with the central nervous system.

Magnetic Resonance Arthrogram

A two-part exam that uses a magnetic field, radio waves and a contrast agent injected into the joint to show a more detailed image, including the cartilage, tendons and ligaments.

Musculoskeletal MRI

A diagnostic test that uses magnetic resonance imaging to create images of the joint structures, including shoulders, hands, wrists, elbows, hips, knees, ankles and feet.

Magnetic Resonance Angiography

A noninvasive test that uses a powerful magnetic field and radio waves to evaluate the function of blood vessels in the body.

Cardiac MRI

An imaging test that uses a magnetic field and radio waves to capture images of the anatomy of the heart in order to diagnose and monitor cardiac disease.

Prostate MRI

An imaging test that uses a magnetic field and radio waves to capture images of the prostate and surrounding tissues in order to diagnose, evaluate and monitor diseases of the gland.

Magnetic Resonance Enterography

A noninvasive test that uses powerful magnets and radio waves to produce detailed images of the small intestine to help diagnose Inflammatory Bowel Disease and other abnormalities.

Magnetic Resonance Defecography

A noninvasive test that uses powerful magnets and radio waves to evaluate rectal function and determine how well the pelvic muscles are working.

Fetal MRI

A type of MRI performed during pregnancy to evaluate a fetus for any conditions or complications that may be present.

Magnetic Resonance Elastography

A type of MRI that determines the stiffness (elasticity) of the liver by capturing the movements of the tissue and creating a color-coded map to pinpoint any areas of concern.

Neuro Quantification

A type of post-MRI assessment that measures sections of the brain and compares them to those measurements of healthy, age-related peers.
