An MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) machine is a sophisticated medical imaging device used to capture detailed images of the inside of a person’s body. It uses a powerful magnetic field, radio waves, and a computer to produce these images, allowing doctors to examine tissues, organs, and skeletal structure without the need for invasive procedures. Unlike X-rays and CT scans, MRI machines do not use ionizing radiation, making them a safe and valuable tool in diagnosing a wide array of medical conditions, such as tumors, injuries, infections, and diseases of the heart and blood vessels, among others.
