Talking about an MRI; What’s an MRI? Magnetic Resonance Imaging Scan is a painless radiology technique that has the distinct advantage of avoiding any form of x-ray radiation exposure. The MRI scanner is a tube surrounded by a giant circular magnet. A patient lies on a movable bed that is inserted into this magnet.
