MRI is a medical imaging technique involving magnetic field and radio frequencies to generate thin-section images of body parts without using ionizing radiation. It is a non-invasive procedure, and there are no known significant harmful effects to the human body. It provides excellent soft tissue contrast, and is particularly useful for diagnostic imaging of the brain, neck, spine, muscles, joints, breasts, prostate, heart and vessels.
