Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a diagnostic and digital imaging service that uses a magnetic field and radio waves to create detailed images of the organs and tissues within the body. During an MRI scan, the patient rests on a table that is padded for comfort, and is then placed under the magnetic field of the machine. This technology does not use radiation. When inside an MRI machine, the magnetic field temporarily realigns the hydrogen atoms in the body.
