An MRI is an advanced test that produces images, or pictures, of the internal organs, blood vessels and tissue, using a larger magnet, radio waves and a computer. Unlike some other tests, an MRI does not use radiation to produce images.
MRI scans are considered very safe. Risks are low and complications rarely occur. What distinguishes MRI from other imaging techniques is its ability to display details that cannot be seen with other techniques.
Patients who have pacemakers are not candidates for MRI. Other imaging options are available.
The MRI unit at St. Mary's of Michigan Standish Hospital is a mobile service, shared with other hospitals in the area. The MRI is on-site Monday's, Wednesday's, and Friday's, 7:00 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. The MRI is located west of the hospital's main entrance.
