At Providence Tarzana MRI Center, our top-of-the-line magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans image your body with immense precision to detect and treat conditions. We make sure to provide you with the most comfortable and calm experience possible while receiving your scan.
MRI is an advanced, state-of-the-art digital imaging method, which produces clear, high-resolution images of tissues and organs within the human body. A powerful, yet harmless, magnetic field is combined with radio waves to produce detailed pictures of body structures such as the spine and brain, as well as a wide range of internal organs and tissues.
Because MRI scans are so versatile, the pictures they produce can be analyzed by your doctor to detect, diagnose and treat conditions ranging from bone infections, joint damage and multiple sclerosis, to brain injuries, blocked blood vessels and cancer.
MRI scans are often confused for X-rays. In fact, MRI scans are safer and provide a wider range of scanning capabilities than X-rays do. An MRI is non-invasive, allowing your doctor to focus on organs and tissue by using a harmless magnetic field, whereas an X-ray uses potentially dangerous radiation to image the dense bones in your body.
