Magnetic resonance imaging is a medical imaging technique used in radiology to form pictures of the anatomy and the physiological processes of the body in both health and disease. MRI scanners use strong magnetic fields, radio waves, and field gradients to generate images of the organs in the body. MRI does not involve x-rays, which distinguishes it from CT or CAT scans. Magnetic resonance imaging is a form of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). NMR can also be used for imaging in other NMR applications such as NMR spectroscopy. Source: Wikipedia.com
You may need an MRI to properly diagnose your foot and ankle problems.
The O-Scan Magnetic Resonance Image scanner is made for extremities. It represents the latest in compact, powerful imaging technology. Up until recently, having this modern technology with such a small footprint has not been possible. With this machine, patients do not need to be put in a tube, eliminating any issues with claustrophobia.
The images produced are first rate, and immediately are able to be viewed by your physician / podiatrist.
Along with the stem cell injections, gait analysis machine, ultrasound therapy machine, Class 4 Lasers and nerve conduction study machine, the MRI offers modern foot and ankle diagnosis and treatment.
