magnetic resonance imaging (mag-NEH-tik REH-zuh-nunts IH-muh-jing)

A procedure in which radio waves and a powerful magnet linked to a computer are used to
create detailed pictures of areas inside the body. These pictures can show the difference between
normal and diseased tissue. Magnetic resonance imaging makes better images of organs and soft
tissue than other scanning techniques, such as computed tomography (CT) or x-ray. Magnetic
resonance imaging is especially useful for imaging the brain, the spine, the soft tissue of joints,
and the inside of bones. Also called MRI, NMRI, and nuclear magnetic resonance imaging.
