Magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, is a medical imaging procedure used to look inside the body. It is non-invasive and uses radio waves, a strong magnet, and a computer to provide details of specific parts of the body. There is no harmful ionizing radiation from an MRI.
The McLean Imaging Center offers standard clinical diagnostic services including MRI of the brain, spine, head/neck, and abdomen/pelvis. We also offer MR angiography (MRA) of the brain and neck, MR spectroscopy of specific brain region(s), orthopedic/musculoskeletal MRI, and IV gadolinium contrast studies. We do not currently offer breast MRI, cardiac MRI, or vascular run-off MRI studies.
Our specialty, state of the art equipment includes:
We also offer specialized advanced magnetic resonance scanning procedures include functional MRI (fMRI) during neurocognitive task performance, diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS), proton (1H), phosphorus (31P), and lithium (7L).
