Applications Specialist – <h1>MRI</h1>
Magnetic Resource Imaging (MRI) is a method for diagnosing a variety of conditions ranging from muscle and ligament injury to tumours of the brain and spinal cord. A doctor might use an MRI scan not only as a diagnostic tool, but also to design and prescribe an appropriate treatment plan or to confirm a possible diagnosis.
The advantage that MRI has over many other forms of diagnostic imaging is that it can create images of soft tissue parts. It is also efficient at identifying and pinpointing some cancers and can be used to help the doctor see if a tumour is or is not cancerous.
