Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

An MRI examination is based on an imaging technique that uses magnetic fields, radio waves and a computer to generate images of parts of the body.

The patient lies inside a large cylinder-shaped magnet. Strong radio waves are then sent through the body. This affects the atoms in the body, forcing their protons to change position. When the protons resume their position, they too emit radio waves.  The magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine captures these signals and a computer converts them into images, based on the position and intensity of the signals.

MRI examinations are performed at two different locations: Hôpital Montfort and the Orléans Health Hub.

Our main focus is Ontario patients; we are happy to accommodate patients from Quebec and other provinces.
