MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging.

This examination provides cross-sectional images of a part of the body, in all three planes of space, using a powerful magnet to react with a component of our body, the hydrogen contained in water molecules (H2O).

This environment calls for special precautions, and a check for contraindications is imperative.

The examination takes an average of 20 to 45 minutes. Your cooperation is essential.
