Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a non-invasive test that uses radio waves and a strong magnetic field to create computer-generated images of the body's various tissues. MRI is especially useful in diagnosing spine and joint problems, injuries to ligaments and muscles, and certain tumors and disorders in the abdomen and chest. It can even help spot a stroke in its early stages.
