MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging, which uses powerful magnets rather than radioactive X-rays to create images of the body, especially the soft tissues. MRI's are non-invasive and safer than traditional X-rays. Doctors use MRI's to treat a wide variety of conditions, especially muscular and skeletal issues.
The stand-up MRI is a relatively new advancement in technology. These machines offer several advantages when compared to traditional MRI's, including requiring less space to install.
