If you have been scheduled for your first MRI, you are probably going into the test wondering what exactly it can diagnose. There are plenty of misconceptions about what MRI’s can and cannot see, and at Queens Dynamic Medical Imaging, we want you to have the facts about your procedure. Here are a few examples of what an MRI can detect in your body.
Issues with your spinal cord – If you have sustained an injury recently that left you fully or partially paralyzed, an MRI can show what damage has been done to your spinal cord. Since an MRI uses magnets and radio waves to produce high-quality slices, or images, of your body, they can show your doctor what type of damage has been done to your spine.
Specific brain injuries or conditions – If you have been in an accident or have had an injury to your head, an MRI can help to give your doctor a better idea of what has happened in that part of your body. Using the various images that an MRI produces, a physician will be able to see what parts of your brain are being affected by the injury.
