Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Innovative Technologies to provide Exceptionally Accurate Results

MRI uses magnet strength to capture images that help our radiologists assess and screen for health conditions that affect organs and structures inside the body including the brain, spine, neck, chest, and abdomen. MRI is a noninvasive exam.  It is painless and does not require the use of X-rays or ionizing radiation.

To provide the best care for our patients' needs, we offer both 1.5 Tesla (1.5T) and 3.0 Tesla (3.0T) strength magnets. Based on the body area that is being imaged and the health issue that is being addressed in your study, our physicians will choose the most efficient MRI technology to achieve exceptionally accurate results.

We use MRI to rule out health issues and for the early discovery of conditions where follow-up treatment may be advised. MRI is a highly-sensitive exam.  It captures very detailed images that the radiologist can use to identify unusual tissue variation.  Our breast imaging physicians also use MRI in conjunction with mammography to better visualize breast lumps or masses where an area of concern has been identified.

At Washington Radiology, our MRI centers feature board-certified physicians and technologists who provide expert attention in a caring and compassionate environment.  This warm and welcoming greeting begins at the moment of scheduling and continues through the exam, completion of the final interpretation, and the prompt sharing of results.

We offer the following MRI Studies:
