Frederick Radiology is your source for high quality low cost MRIs in Frederick MD. MRI is short for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. It is a procedure used to scan patients and determine the severity of injuries. An MRI machine uses a strong magnetic field and radio waves to create detailed images of the body part being scanned. The information and energy created by the MRI machine are then sent to a computer which processes all the signals and generates it into an image. The final product is a beautiful, detailed 3-D image representation of the area being examined. Those images are reviewed by our Radiologist and a report of the study is produced within 24 hours.
Unlike CT scanning or general X-ray studies, no radiation is involved with an MRI.
