Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)


What is and how it works?

Magnetic Ressonância (RM) is a way to get very detailed images of organs and tissues throughout the body, thus allowing a more accurate diagnosis. without resorting to X-rays or ionizing radiation.
Instead, it uses radiofrequency waves, a strong magnetic field and a computer to create images.

For its realization, the patient is lying on a bed that moves into an open on both sides, ventilated and lighted "scanner" (tunnel). Only the body part to be examined which is located inside the tunnel.
The strong magnetic field aligns atomic particles called protons which are present in most body tissues. The frequency waves are applied to the protons produce signals that are picked up by a receiver within the "scanner".
These signals are then processed by computer, creating very clear images of tissues that can be viewed in any orientation.
