Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
RP Eagle provides complete support for a variety of MRI procedures. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a diagnostic imaging test which uses strong magnet fields and radiofrequency waves to produce images of internal organs and structures. Although MRI is a non-invasive procedure, a contrast agent may be necessary to better visualize organs or structures. The contrast agent, if needed, will be administered via an injection prior to the examination.
