St. Anthony Hospital has incorporated one of the most advanced diagnostic tools for helping physicians reach confident diagnoses to provide the best patient care. What do these MRI updates mean? A higher resolution scan, a faster scan which means less time in the tunnel, greater comfort for patients, unique applications and breast MRI updates have also been added. MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) employs magnets and radio-frequency pulse that tracks the hydrogen atoms in the body to create an image.
