Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
MRI uses computers and magnetic fields, rather than radiation, to provide safe and noninvasive images of the human anatomy. All MRI scans are conducted through physician referrals. The MRI is used to improve the diagnosis of a wide range of conditions such as cardiovascular disease; brain disorders; stroke; and musculoskeletal conditions in the knee, shoulder, and other joints. It is also used in evaluating orthopedic injuries. Learn more about MRI technology at our fequently asked MRI questions page.
The MRI is available on site at Brookings Health System, Monday-Friday.
Watch Brookings resident Carol Johnson talk about her MRI experiences and why she prefers to have them done in Brookings.
