Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a medical imaging method used in radiology to provide images of the body's architecture and physiological processes. MRI scanners create pictures of the organs in the body by using powerful magnetic fields, magnetic field gradients, and radio waves. MRI is distinct from CT and PET scans in that it does not employ X-rays or ionising radiation.

MRI is a nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) medical application that may also be utilised for imaging in other NMR applications such as NMR spectroscopy.

MRI is commonly utilised in hospitals and clinics for medical diagnosis, staging, and illness follow-up. MRI gives higher contrast in pictures of soft tissues, such as the brain or belly, than CT.

However, because to the lengthier and louder measurements with the subject in a long, restricting tube, it may be seen as less pleasant by patients, but "Open" MRI designs typically alleviate this. Furthermore, implants and other non-removable metal in the body might constitute a concern and prevent certain individuals from successfully undertaking an MRI test.
