Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive medical test that uses a powerful magnetic field, radio frequency pulses and computer technology to produce detailed images of organs, soft tissues, bone and virtually all other internal body structures. It aids physicians in diagnosing and treating a variety of conditions of the body, including the musculoskeletal system.
Advanced Radiology Solutions musculoskeletal specialist Dr. Joseph Triolo and Shore Orthopaedic University Associates surgeon Dr. Steven Zabinski.
MRI is the best choice of examining the body's major joints, the spine for disk disease and soft tissues (muscles, tendons and ligaments) and bones of the extremities.
Setting new standards in image quality and highly developed imagining capabilities, Shore Medical Center uses a 1.5 Tesla magnet, short-bore, Siemens Symphony MRI system. The 1.5 magnet is considered the gold standard for MRI services.
For the overall comfort of the patient, Shore's MRI suite offers music, headphones and special lighting, providing a soothing setting for technologically sophisticated studies.
