An MRI scanner uses magnetism and radio waves to produce remarkably clear pictures of the inside of your head, spine or other body parts. An MRI uses a strong magnet equipped with a radio transmitter and receiver. These instruments produce soft-tissue images, which are used by radiologists to distinguish normal, healthy soft tissue from diseased tissue. Cardiac MRI, a noninvasive procedure that uses powerful magnets and radio waves to construct pictures of the heart, is available at Norton Audubon Hospital.
