What is an MRI?
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) produces images of the body’s internal structures by passing radio waves through a powerful magnetic ﬁeld. Differing frequencies of radio waves are produced by the different body structures, which are mapped and converted into digital images by a computer. MRI is especially good for imaging soft tissues in the body, including the brain, nerves, muscles and organs.
Manatee Diagnostic offers MRI exams at the Riverside and Pointe West locations. Our Riverside location features the Philips Ingenia 1.5T MRI. Both locations offer a choice of feet first or head first for most exams. They also feature large openings to increase patient comfort and provide excellent quality of pictures for your exam. Our caring and friendly staff look forward to taking care of you.
