Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a 3D imaging technique used by medical professionals for examination and diagnosis of various kinds of tissue. It uses magnetic field, radio waves and electric field to produce images in the body in multiple planes. It is one of the safest techniques used in medical and dental field to visualize the soft tissue anomaly and detect pathology without exposing the body to harmful radiation. It uses non-ionizing radiation, which are sensitive, noninvasive and very specific in nature. It is a useful diagnostic tool for spinal and brain disorders owing to its excellent soft tissue contrast.
