About MRIs: A Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a test that uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to create images of organs and other structures inside the body. There is no radiation involved, and in many cases an MRI gives information that cannot be seen on an X-ray, ultrasound, or CT scan. An MRI procedure typically takes from 20 to 60 minutes. Results are available within 24 hours.
