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. MRI makes better images of organs and soft tissue than other
scanning techniques, such as computed tomography (CT) or x-ray. MRI is especially useful
for imaging the brain, the spine, the soft tissue of joints, and the inside of bones. Also called
magnetic resonance imaging, NMRI, and nuclear magnetic resonance imaging.
