Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)



Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is imaging using strong magnetic fields and radio waves to produce cross-section images of organs and internal structures such as bones and ligaments.

Sometimes a dye (contrast agent) is given to show internal structures or abnormalities more clearly.

Types of MRIs commonly performed at Baptist Health Louisville include:

  • Angiography
  • Head
  • Musculoskeletal
  • Breast
  • Spine
    • Cervical spine
    • Lumbar spine
