Magnetic Resonance Imaging for Thyroid Diagnostics

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a medical imaging technique that produces detailed images of the body in any plane, illuminating structures and function with a high degree of clarity.  It is able to create greater contrast between soft tissues than computed tomography (CT). MRI also uses a strong magnetic field in conjunction with radiofrequency to create a rotating magnetic field, detected by a scanner, which produces an image of the body.
