What is this?
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a noninvasive medical test that helps the cardiologist with the diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions.
A MRI uses a powerful magnetic field, radio frequency pulses and a computer to produce detailed pictures of the heart. The images can then be examined on a computer.
Detailed MR images allow physicians to better evaluate various parts of the hart and determine the presence of certain diseases that may not be assessed adequately with other imaging methods.
