MRI

M·R·I

\ˈem\ är\ ī\

noun

Stands for magnetic resonance imaging. It is a medical imaging technique designed to investigate the body’s physiology and anatomy in health and disease. Strong magnetic fields are used and radiowaves form images of the body. An MRI scan is useful for medical diagnosis and follow-up tests because it does not subject the patient to ionizing radiation.
