It's clear–precision is important during diagnosis. Of all imaging technologies, MRI or Magnetic Resonance Imaging gives doctors the clearest, most precise image of the inside of the body. It's sophisticated, and uses a strong magnetic field to show the structure and detail of organs, soft tissue and bones, which can pinpoint all types of issues from abnormalities to disease. Dukes Memorial Hospital performs MRIs with your comfort in mind. Nervous about your test? Just speak to one of our staff.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses pulsed radio frequency along with a magnetic field rather than X-ray to create detailed diagnostic images. MRI detects and details soft tissue and joint abnormalities, as well as, problems with blood vessels and blood flow using Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA). Dukes Memorial Hospital 's staff is trained to provide the most comfortable MRI experience possible.
