MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is an advanced imaging technique in which a powerful magnetic field is applied to the patient to create highly detailed pictures of the body. MRI images show excellent contrast between the different soft tissues in our bodies thus making it especially useful in imaging the brain, musculoskeletal system, the heart, the breasts, and abdomen. Unlike CAT scan or traditional X-Rays, MRI uses no radiation thus making it a very safe imaging technique.

The Ernst Radiology Clinic employs fellowship trained expert radiologists to provide interpretation of all MRI examinations performed at our three locations. We have Open MRI at both St. Clare Health Center and DePaul Health Center to suit our claustrophobic and larger patients. We have an ultra high magnetic field 3 Tesla MRI at St. Clare Health Center for advanced high resolution imaging protocols. Additionally, we have high magnetic field 1.5 Tesla MRI at both DePaul Health Center and SSM/CDI Imaging in North County.
