What is a MRI?
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a painless, non-invasive diagnostic procedure that produces images of the body without ionizing radiation. MRI uses a magnetic field, radio waves and sophisticated computers to generate detailed images of tissues within the body. MRI technology allows physicians to “see” hidden problems with precision, for more effective diagnosis and treatment.

The HD 1.5 Tesla MRI
Now in High Definition, the NEW HD 1.5 Tesla MRI is one of the most advanced medical imaging devices available – able to produce stunning, high-quality images of soft tissue. MRI can help doctors diagnose or monitor a treatment, in addition to providing a clear picture of the patient’s condition, which allows them to establish a better recovery plan for their patient.
MRI is especially helpful in imaging soft tissues in the body, including the brain, nerves, muscles and organs. Medvue’s cutting-edge MRI sports a shorter and wider bore (70cm diameter + 125cm length), eliminating the confinement associated with conventional MRI scanners – a benefit to patients who suffer from claustrophobia, or are larger in size.
