MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. It is a medical imaging technique used to visualize internal structures of the body in detail. MRI utilizes strong magnetic fields and radio waves to generate images of organs, tissues, and other body structures. Unlike X-rays or CT scans, MRI does not use ionizing radiation, making it safer for repeated use. MRI is commonly used to diagnose and monitor a variety of medical conditions such as tumors, injuries, infections, and neurological disorders.
