Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
MRI is an important part of the imaging services at Redlands Community Hospital. Using a large magnet and radio waves, an MRI obtains high-resolution images of any part of the body. This method is commonly used to diagnose neurological diseases or the cause of back or knee pain. An MRI can also identify torn ligaments and muscles, damaged tendons or problems in other soft tissue. MRI sometimes uses a "contrast agent" (dye) called gadolinium to enhance the image.
