The Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) department is comprised of four ARRT American Registry of Radiologic Technologists, certified radiologic technologists, who perform all of the diagnostic MRI procedures and perform over 6,000 procedures annually. Board-certified radiologists supervise and interpret all MRI procedures. This department offers patients access to advanced technology, including two American College of Radiology (ACR) accredited 1.5Telsa MRI machines, which attests to the highest quality imaging standards.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a painless, safe, noninvasive diagnostic tool which uses magnetic force and pulses of radio wave energy to produce 2-D and 3-D images of the patient's internal organs. Specialized protocols help provide customized imaging sequences to focus on the particular organ of concern. MRI is usually used to diagnose internal injuries, as well as to diagnose and determine the extent of diseases, such as brain and nervous system disorders, cancer, diseases of the gastrointestinal system and musculoskeletal system.
To schedule an appointment at Midtown Medical Center or Northside Medical Center for a MRI, the patient's physician should call the Patient Intake Center at (706) 571-1065 and specify the location.
