Magnetic resonance imaging, commonly known as MRI, utilizes powerful magnetic fields and radio waves to form images of the body to diagnose illness. MRI provides non-invasive, diagnostic testing on almost every aspect of the human body, including bones, organs, muscles, and neurological functions. MRI is a critical branch of medical imaging testing.
MRI is a great field of study for people who:
- care about patient well being
- enjoy a mix of technical work and patient interaction
- want to work in a growing area of the healthcare sector
