Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a noninvasive medical test that uses
a powerful magnetic field, radio frequency pulses and a computer to produce
detailed pictures of organs, soft tissues, bone and virtually all other
internal body structures. The images can then be examined on a computer
monitor, printed or copied to CD. MRI does not use ionizing radiation (X-rays).
The detailed images from an MRI allow physicians to better evaluate various
parts of the body and certain diseases that may not be assessed adequately
with other imaging methods such as X-ray,
computed tomography (CT).

No More Claustrophobia!
Healthy Partners, Summer 2021
Receiving a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exam can cause anxiety for
patients who are fearful of tight, enclosed spaces. But that may no longer
be the case at the Southeast Georgia Health System Brunswick Campus. Patients
can now look forward to a more comfortable, roomier experience, thanks
to advanced imaging technology recently acquired by the Health System.
