MRI

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA) use a powerful magnetic field, radio frequency pulses and a computer to produce detailed pictures of your anatomy.

At DuPage Medical Group, the images are transmitted electronically to a computer workstation where a Radiologist will review and interpret your images. This interpretation will provide your physician with information about your condition in a diagnostic medical report. 

There are many varieties of MRI scanners in the market with varying degrees of strength and capabilities. At DuPage Medical Group, we use state-of-the-art, High-Field MRI machines. All of our scanners are 1.5T-3.0T which provide for optimal resolution and image quality. High-Field MRI allows the Radiologist to better visualize the anatomical structures of the body providing a more accurate diagnosis to guide your care. MRI does not use ionizing radiation (X-Rays) and is safe for patients so long as the screening process is completed.
