3T Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, uses a strong magnet and radio waves to provide clear and detailed diagnostic images of internal body organs and tissues. MRI is a valuable tool for the diagnosis of a broad range of conditions, including:

  • cancer
  • stroke and other neurologic disorders
  • disorders of the spine
  • vascular disease
  • joint and musculoskeletal disorders

MRI allows evaluation of some body structures that may not be as visible with other diagnostic imaging methods.

The 3T MRI at SFI is the most advanced system of its kind, generating unprecedented imaging quality in less time. It is more open and less confining than older generations of MRI equipment, so it can image patients of various sizes, including those who are anxious or claustrophobic.
