MRI scans are one of the most important studies that can provide high resolution pictures of the body. In fact many people comment that they are the closest one can get to the human blueprint of the body.
MRI is particularly useful for imaging tumours, swelling and areas of the body with fluid retention or swelling or areas of the body with increased blood flow.
The brain and spinal cord are very clearly scanned with MRI.
MRI is radiation free!
Our scanner is the only 3 Tesla MRI in Canada that is open for the clinical use for the public.
The 3 Tesla is a measure of the power of the magnet and is double the power of currently public available scanners.
The is a great advantage to the patient in particular when your doctor is looking at your joints or your brain and spinal cord.
